More important than this "tank":

When asked again if he'd be willing to sell MSG’s sports franchises, he said that he’s willing to sell anything in his portfolio to finance the project.

"It could involve selling anything,” Dolan said. “Hopefully I don't have to sell a damn thing. I have enough money to do more than this in the bank without taking loans. We don't have to."

Dolan is not alone in the venture. Las Vegas Sands, which owns the Venetian Hotel, is investing $100 million, Dolan said.

Brandon Ross, a media analyst at BTIG Research has raised questions about whether Dolan could be interested in selling the sports teams MSG controls.

"MSG has a history of taking corporate action to unlock value especially by spinning assets out,” Ross said. “We're not sure at this time if Jim is interested in selling any piece of the teams."


I stumbled upon this little blurb in an article about Dolan opening up a new venue in Vegas.......please.

There is no way you can name one worse owner. The only one was Donald Sterling.

And please, please, let's not forget that not only he has ruined the Knicks franchise as a basketball club, but that he is also personally a disgusting, indecent human being and that has also translated into the organization.

No. No one worse than Dolan.

I think Dallas, Orlando, and Memphis are really our competition now. Maybe Chicago and Brooklyn. Sacramento, Atlanta, and Phoenix are just a lost cause.

I think Atlanta, PHX and SAC are a lock. Chicago and Brooklyn has talent that can steal games

Definitely agree about Atlanta and Phoenix. They are uncatchable. Sac is really bad but I looked at their schedule and it's very friendly coming up. March has them playing 12 home games out of 16. One home stretch includes BK, Utah, NY, NO, Orl. That could easily be 4 wins in 5.

If we can somehow sneak into the top 7 that would be fantastic. Good news is a lot of the bottom nine teams play each other a lot over the next two months. They can beat on each other while we keep losing to the above .500 teams.

Chicago plays Orlando twice, BK three times, Dallas, Memphis twice, NY, Atl.

Dan Gilbert's business practices. Bulls giving away Jordan Bell to help their baseball team.

Anyway, point is not to hate on the other guys. Just no need to wish that type of ill will upon somebody

yeah

I do hate Dolan but I do believe in the "Schottenheimer Law".


As a Jets fan the prevailing thought in the early 2010's was that OC Brian Schottenheimer should be fired and that ANYONE would be better.


They hire Tony Sparano, quite possibly the worst OC hire in NFL history. Guy wanted to ground and pound and play football like it was 1983....


"Schottenheimer Law" works here as well. We may get an owner worse.


But much more important is that I would worry if Dolan's dumb @ss seeks a playoff appearence to show how profitable the Knicks and the garden can be and tell Mills to trade off picks or whatever it takes to bring in enough decent talent to make the 8th seed.
