Knicks owner James Dolan insinuated he'd ban from Madison Square Garden a fan who told Dolan to sell the team. A fan also told Dolan to sell the team, which also led to that person being escorted out of the arena. Dolan said. "You want to not come to any more games?"

From there, Dolan said the comment was rude while the fan expressed his right to voice his opinion, leaving the clearly agitated Dolan to respond back by saying: "No it's not an opinion, and you know what, enjoy watching them on TV".

Oakley, a longtime National Basketball Association enforcer and rebounding machine, said Dolan was wrong to mouth off at a fan who told him to sell the team during a loss at MSG.

The New York Post reported Sunday that, per an National Basketball Association source, "a concern exists" at the Garden that "Dolan's reputation doesn't help the Knicks' free agent mission".

"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", said a Garden spokesperson.

There you have it, Knicks fans.

Apparently, freedom of speech isn't allowed inside Madison Square Garden. It's unclear if he's been permanently banned from Knicks games. we're working on it.

Owning the NBA's worst team might make a guy quick to anger. It's also off-court incidents like his feud with a fan, a similar one involving former Knick Charles Oakley in 2017, and a third with Ethan Hawke that have stained Dolan's reign at MSG. Oakley was cleared of misdemeanor assault charges past year.

"This man told the security guards to throw me out for no reason", Oakley told Isola. 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. Look at what happened to me and the other fans in NY.
