If we're keeping this reasoning let's keep Donald Trump as President. You never know, Hitler 2.0 may be next. Devil you know is better than the devil you don't.

Also from this interview—Dolan has a song about his friend Harvey Weinstein on his new album.
"Willingly, gratefully."

You lowkey tryna turn this into a political thread but Dolan cuts the checks and stays away. What is the good element(s) that Trump brings? I'll wait...

I said this recently and was attacked by some jackass poster on here.

As long as he isn’t interfering I see no reason to move on.

I'm fine if Dolan stays out of it like he has been the last few years, but MP4 has a point

It's always easy to say "it could be worse" cause the unknown is much scarier than the known, it's why most good horror movies don't show the monster fully until the end.

IMO, it's more the fact that it's the Knicks than Dolan that's why he's fine with spending whatever. It's easy to throw money around when you own a team that's always making money no matter what
Lakers

Monk/Wright
Kennard/Bonga

It could be the Knicks' brand but I don't buy that any owner in this market will spend. Cuz look at the Mets. And look at what happened when Prokorhov lost his stomach after he didn't yield early results in this market. At least we know Dolan wants to win and will spend whatever necessary to do so. Some new owner may acknowledge this team will turn a profit regardless but may want to increase profits for his own pockets at the expense of winning. I just don't see Dolan as this big problem that some do. Especially now that he seemingly has competent people in place that he trusts.

All I need to do is look at Jame's Dolan's record as Knicks owner since he took over the franchise.

18 years of mostly terrible basketball due to terrible management hired by Dolan, who has admitted that he has interfered in said management in the past.

Nothing has changed about Dolan at all. Steve Mills is not a new face. He's been at MSG for almost the entire duration of Dolan's ownership. He doesn't inspire confidence. The only thing that inspires confidence is that the Knicks can somehow not make bad decisions between now and next year and maybe they can make something positive happen.

Sports is a results-based business. Actually, many jobs. If Dolan produced terrible results working in a cubicle he would've been fired by now. Same goes for sports. You are judged on the results you produce. That's why Jerry Buss, Peter Holt and others were lauded as great owners. That's why Donald Sterling, James Dolan, Michael Jordan are regarded as terrible ones. The fish rots from the head down.

So you actually telling me Dolan hasn't changed at all? You telling me he is still meddling? You telling me he is stepping on Scott Perry's toes? You telling me he is still taking input from Isiah? You telling me he is still being advised by McKinsey & Company? You telling me he is still giving CAA the run of MSG?
