Well after reading through about half of this article [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
It made me think. Didnt Mr. James Dolan take over the Knicks when his dad Charles Dolan, retired in the mid 90's?
I think I remember reading that a long while back but I cant remember.
Well if it was around that time here's what I blame Dolan for
Firing Ernie Grunfeld after 17 years with the Knicks
Remember Dave Checketts?
He became president of the New York Knicks in March 1991, and in his four seasons as president, the team made it to the Eastern Conference Finals three times and went to the NBA Finals in 1994 and 1999. The team set records for attendance, television ratings and revenue under his watch.
Sure times change but I guess it's not what happened above, but what happened afterward.
Hiring of Scott Layden and letting him tear this team apart.
JD never really had control of his franchise anyway, Spree and Camby hated his guts and the team had been on a downfall until the most recent years, when I have all the trust in Isiah that he is controling this team and this year we will see everything we wanted in a competitive playoff caliber team and Dolan is an idiot that comes out once in a while to show he still signs the checks.
Sure he wont sell the Knicks anytime soon but maybe he'll learn how to run his companies better. Anyone remember what happened to Nobody Beats the Wiz?
