James Dolan threatens to ban fan who tells him to sell Knicks

James Dolan threatens to ban fan who tells him to sell Knicks

The scene offered an immediate reminder of a similar episode in April 2017, when a fan heading into the Garden for a Knicks game spotted Dolan and said to him, "Sell the team, Jim".

Dolan may get the last laugh on this particular fan, but he'll be hard pressed to kick out close to 20,000 fans chanting "sell the team!" down the stretch of the season, something that's nearly sure to happen now. Dolan said. "You want to not come to any more games?"

Many fans blame Dolan for these struggles, and have taken it out on the team and its owner in various forms over the years.

Dolan is seen leaving the court during the Knicks' 102-94 defeat against the Sacramento Kings, the video obtained by TMZ Sports shows.

"Our policy is and will continue to be that if you are disrespectful to anyone in our venues, we will ask you not to return", the statement read.

Dolan and Knicks management are frequent targets of fans' derision because of the team's woeful performance.

Oakley wasn't having it from Dolan.

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

The 55-year-old Oakley played for the Knicks from 1988 to 1998, helping them reach the NBA Finals.

Apparently, freedom of speech isn't allowed inside Madison Square Garden.

"This man told the security guards to throw me out for no reason", Oakley told Isola. "I told him I wasn't happy".

It's unclear if the fan has been banned from the Garden, but that would be in keeping with previous such incidents. The Knicks current record of 13-53 is the worst in all the National Basketball Association, and the team has not made the playoffs since the 2012-2013 season. "They've said, 'We'd retire your jersey, ' they'll do this".
