It was announced, late Wednesday, that James Dolan, chairman and CEO of MSG, is considering spinning the Knicks and the Rangers off into a separate company, which would smooth the path for an eventual sale of both teams, per a Crain’s report. This suggests that there may be a day, perhaps even in the not-so-distant future, when those teams are no longer owned by James Dolan.
Dolan is understood to be more interested in music and building cutting-edge entertainment venues than sports.
“He wants to be more Elon Musk than George Steinbrenner,” an analyst told Crain’s in an article last month.
JAMES DOLAN IS PREPARING TO SELL THE KNICKS LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOO. FREEEE AT LAST FREE AT LAAAAAAST. THE DAYS OF BEING A LAUGHING STOCK IN THE LEAGUE ARE OVER. THE SHACKLES ARE BEING REMOVED. JAMES DOLAN CAN EAT MY DICK. I WILL NEVER FORGIVE HIM FOR BANNING CHARLES OAKLEY FROM MADISON SQUARE GARDEN. I WILL ALSO, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, I WILL NEVER FORGIVE THE PRICE OF BEER THERE. IF I’M GOING TO WATCH 45-YEAR OLD TRACY MCGRADY PLAYING 40 MINUTES A NIGHT, I’M GOING TO NEED A DRINK OR 15. FREE AGENTS ARE SUDDENLY GOING TO WANT TO PLAY FOR THE MECCA NOW THAT THEY KNOW THEY WON’T BE PLAYING FOR A BOSS WHO WOULD RATHER PLAY HIS FUCKING KAZOO WITH BON JOVI THEN ACTUALLY MAINTAIN A HEALTHY AND WINNING FRANCHISE. MY MAN HIRED ISIAH THOMAS TO COACH AND RUN BASKETBALL OPERATIONS WHO HAD A 1000% FAILURE RATE MAKING BASKETBALL DECISIONS OH AND HE SEXUALLY HARASSED A BUNCH OF CHICKS AND JAMES DOLAN’S SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM WAS TO MOVE ISIAH THOMAS FROM THE FRONT OFFICE TO INSTEAD GO COACH THE NEW YORK LIBERTY. MAKES TOTAL SENSE. YOU FIND OUT YOUR FRIEND DOESN’T RESPECT WOMEN SOOO NATURALLY HE SHOULD GO COACH A BUNCH OF WOMEN. FUCK JAMES DOLAN. I WON’T STOP SHOUTING UNTIL JAMES DOLAN IS REMOVED THE BUILDING AND SELLS THE TEAM TO ANYONE, PREFERABLY ME. THANK YOU.
sidenote: I apologize if that was hard to read. I was feeling a type of way.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you want to put your money together and buy the team with me. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
