Default I have no words for this stupidity

I always knew James Dolan was a moron from Knicks fans, but now I know it more than ever.

James Dolan is out of his *****ing mind. He has sat idly by while Isiah Thomas turned the Knicks from a train wreck into a hijacked Flight 93 crashing into the goddamn Hindenburg which then crashes into the Titanic. He’s watched for two and a half years as Isiah kept pouring gasoline on the fire, and now he’s saying, “Hey, fix this immediately.”
First of all, what kind of lunatic hires a guy and then warns him of being fired? "Here you go ... you have one year stop this Titantic or you're fired." Even if they're lying through their teeth, any sane person hiring someone would be all smiles and pretend they are starting a long, prosperous relationship.

But it boggles my mind Dolan would do this and then give such a harsh ultimatum. I have NEVER seen incompetence like this before.

The great mystery surrounding the Knicks is "why wasn't Isiah fired seasons ago?" Now, we know. It's on Dolan. The draft isn't helping at all, either. But, given all the pretext, Dolan absolutely had to give Isiah an ultimatum. This franchise can't possibly get any worse, can it? Hope they love being in the cellar for the next few seasons.

Any publicity the Knicks get these days just makes them even more of a laughing stock. We've all seen the great trades and acquisitions Isiah made as GM, now he's supposed to turn them around as their coach? This should be interesting.

Dolan has signed Isiah's walking papers with that statement. The first time a player decides that he doesn't like Isiah he is going to cause problems because he knows Isiah is going to be gone anyway.

Did you guys know that MSG Tv was the only station allowed to show the conference and ask questions? The problem with that is Dolan owns MSG!! :lol:

BTW...

Anyone who wants unbiased opinions on Pat Riley feel free to PM me. :lol:

James Dolan is the WORST owner in the history of sports. This guy has no clue at all! I am a Knicks fan and my loyalty is being tested by this fool. :redhot:

Maybe Isiah's history of ruining an entire league, the CBA, should have been a tip off to Dolan? I love it though, as the Knicks won't be competative agisn until 2025 with all of their bad contracts and head cases on the roster. How long until Franchise and Marbury get into a fight?
