Just when you think New York Knicks owner James Dolan couldn’t get anymore unlikable he gives us yet another reason to call him a dick. Mr. Dolan lashed out at a lifelong Knicks fans, telling the fan to “go root for the Nets because the Knicks don’t want you”. No I’m serious.
In an e-mail exchange obtained by Deadspin the Knicks fat little trust-fund baby of an owner attempts tell a fan off, instead he makes himself look like the biggest jackass.
E-mail sent to Mr. Dolan:
“Subject: I have been a knicks fan since 1952
At one stage I thought that you did a wonderful thing when you acquired EVERYTHING from your dad. However, since then it has been ALL DOWN HILL. Your working with Isaiah Thomas & everything else regarding the Knicks. Bringing on Phil Jackson was a positive beginning, but lowballing Steve Kerr was a DISGRACE to the knicks. The bottom line is that you merely continued to interfere with the franchise.
As a knicks fan for in excess of 60 years, I am utterly embarrassed by your dealings with the Knicks. Sell them so their fans can at least look forward to growing them in a positive direction Obviously, money IS NOT THE ONLY THING. You have done a lot of utterly STUPID business things with the franchise. Please NO MORE.
[Aaron Bierman’s dad]”

You are a sad person. Why would anybody write such a hateful letter. I am.just guessing but ill bet your life is a mess and you are a hateful mess. What have you done that anyone would consider positive or nice. I am betting nothing. In fact ill bet you are negative force in everyone who comes in contact with you. You most likely have made your family miserable. Alcoholic maybe. I just celebrated my 21 year anniversary of sobriety. You should try it. Maybe it will help you become a person that folks would like to have around. In the mean while start rooting.for the Nets because the Knicks dont want you.
Sadly this is not the type of offense that can force NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to stick his wingtip shoe up Dolan’s ass and force him to sell the Knicks a la Donald Sterling. This does however show how sensitive and clueless this guy is.
If Dolan thinks that fan is an alcoholic and a negative force then I guess every Knicks fan should be enrolled at Alcoholics Anonymous. Maybe one day Dolan will become a man, but until then he just continues to show that he is a little boy.
