Owner of Knicks is Frustrated with 1-2 Start

james_dolan_2013It seems James Dolan honestly thinks the New York Knicks should win an NBA title this season, and hes frustrated here.

So hes taking it out on the Knick City Dancers. Or something like that.

Theres a lot of poking fun at the Knicks mercurial owner in the latest post from Frank Isola at the New York Daily News. The Knicks are off to a 1-2 start and got thumped over the weekend by the Minnesota Timberwolves, and apparently Dolan has much higher expectations.

"According to several sources, Dolan was ready to erupt after the Knicks surrendered 40 first-quarter points and as the deficit ballooned to 23 (vs. Minnesota) Dolan went hunting for Steve Mills, the teams new president and general manager.

That Mills isnt responsible for either the roster or the coaching staff didnt matter. With Dolan the facts rarely matter. The boss needed to vent and found Mills in a suite.

Dolan has become such a hands-on owner figuratively speaking that, according to a source, he doesnt want the dancers dancing. Crazy, right? The same guy who wanted creative input on the dancers outfits (and hes good at it) apparently ordered that the girls roles be reduced to mostly throwing T-shirts into the crowd. They performed maybe one routine on Sunday.
