Oakley calls Knicks' Dolan a bully for fan incident

James Dolan owns Madison Square Garden but not the hearts of Knicks fans

James Dolan owns Madison Square Garden but not the hearts of Knicks fans

New York Knicks owner James Dolan made headlines over the weekend after threatening to ban a fan who told him to sell the team.

'You think I should sell the team?' Knicks owner James Dolan said the fan who called out to him as he was walking out. "You wanna not come to any more games?"

Why the fan would even want to return to pay good money to watch such a bad product is one question, but a better one is, why Dolan is allowed to continue owning the Knicks - which used to be one of the proudest franchises in all of American sports. His criticisms of the team and management have led to a strained relationship with the organization, which boiled over in 2017 when he was arrested after an altercation with security officials after they told him to leave his seat at the arena near Dolan.

It shouldn't have taken Dolan's latest flareup with a Knicks fan for someone in Albany to see the problem.

Officials said they detained two unidentified people as persons of interest in the girl's death. California police identified a dead girl's body found in a duffel bag along a trail Sunday.

At this point, it's not clear what punishment the fan will face, but with how the Knicks are playing, not being able to come to the arena might actually be a blessing in disguise.

"No, it's not an opinion", Dolan snaps back.

Oakley has a rocky history with Dolan.

Knicks fans have been dealing with disappointing seasons for the past 15 years. They have not made the playoffs since 2013, now sitting last in the East at 13-54. "They've said, 'We'd retire your jersey, ' they'll do this". "That's like saying, 'I'm not gonna let you have a bite of this sh*t sandwich".
