Knicks Owner James Dolan Calls Fan Altercation An "Ambush"

Knicks Owner James Dolan Calls Fan Altercation An

The fan told him to sell the team, and on Tuesday Dolan said he was "ambushed" and ultimately banned the fan from Madison Square Garden. Dolan stressed he wouldn't sell even if someone offered him as much as $6 billion.

Dolan was a guest on The Michael Kay Show and attempted to defend the ban. "Dolan did this. This is bulls--", according to Sports Illustrated. "It's on. It's go-time". "From players, from representatives, it's about who wants to come", Dolan said. "He is very close friends with a G.M. of one team. And you know what, enjoy watching them on TV".

The Knicks, of course, have been a rumored destination for Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant and Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving, both of whom are able to become unrestricted free agents in July. "A new owner might scare them off".

In addition, Dolan had previously been involved in some ugly incidents with fans, as well as a banishment of fan favorite Charles Oakley from the Garden that earned the owner widespread condemnation and scorn. The billionaire stopped and responded, "So you think I should sell the team?" and waved the fan over.

Dolan admitted he wouldn't kick out everyone if more fans chanted the same thing at him.

"We're not quitting. We're not selling", he said. As soon as they were done with it, it was immediately sold to TMZ. However, he said, that changed when it "became clear that the whole thing was planned".

Previous reports have suggested Dolan could have interest in selling the Knicks. "They were stalking me". The former Knicks great was arrested after an altercation with a security guard at Madison Square Garden in 2017. "You are not allowed to stalk the owner and then confront him like that".

James Dolan seems confident NY will land elite talent this summer.

"We hear from people all the time". "We can't respond because of the National Basketball Association rules, etc., but that doesn't stop them from telling us, and they do". But that doesn't stop them from telling us - and they do. It's the youngest team in the National Basketball Association. Right? What I was thinking was that we'd invite him back to the next game and take him back and have him meet the team, and see what was going on - get him a sense of, 'Hey, this team is doing very well.

"For the record, I'm not selling the team and I'm not quitting", said Dolan.
