Sell the team, sell the team, sell the team, sell the team

Just when it seemed like the league couldn’t get any spicier than it already has been this season between the Lakers imploding, Oklahoma City falling from the 3rd seed to the 8th seed in the brutal western conference, Anthony Davis conspiring to join the Lakers, and Jimmy Butler leading to the third-string to a win over the starters in practice to name a few – the man, the myth, the legend, the infamous owner of the New York Knicks, James Dolan, who went on a power trip in 2017 and permanently banned an actual legend who played for the team, Charles Oakley – has recently decided to ban a fan who told him to “sell the team.”


“He got me,” Dolan said of the fan’s heckling. “That f***ing fan boomed me.” Dolan added, “He’s so good,” repeating it four times. Dolan then said he wanted to add that fan to the list of people he’s banned.

James Dolan (probably)

Having only made the playoffs 5 times between 2000-2019, all of which resulted in a first round except for the 2012-2013 season where they lost in the conference semi-finals instead, fans have been let down time and time again, not by the players, but by ownership and management. From running triangle offense in the pace and space era to drafting bust after bust after bust and now not being able to lose for some inexplicable reason which would help to improve the odds of landing a lottery pick, the organization is, for a lack of a better term: assbackwards.

Nearly two decades. Nineteen years. And the Knicks still haven’t been able to turn it around. Big oof.

But Sam Hinkie? The GM for the lottery bound, bottom feeding team, 19-63 76ers team in 2013? Well, by 2016 they were contenders. Three years. That’s all it took for a franchise that’s been in a similar situation to turn things around. If that doesn’t tell you everything you need to know about management, I don’t know what will.

From “The Process” to Big 4

That being said, I leave Dolan with an ode:

JD please, JD please, JD please, sell the team

Hear my words of wisdom, sell the team

JD please, JD please, JD please, sell the team
