A Fan Yells ‘Sell the Team.’ Did Knicks Owner James Dolan Threaten Him?


James L. Dolan, the owner of the Knicks, took exception to a fan at Madison Square Garden who suggested that he sell the team. Dolan’s response: threatening to bar the fan from future games.

In a video released by TMZ, Dolan is seen leaving the courtside area late in the Knicks’ loss to the Sacramento Kings on Saturday. A fan yells from off camera, “Sell the team.”

Dolan stops quickly and responds, “You think I should sell the team?” and beckons the fan to come nearer. “You want to not come to any more games?”

“Why?” the fan asks.

“That’s rude,” Dolan says.

“It’s an opinion,” the fan contends.

“No, it’s not an opinion, and you know what? Enjoy watching them on TV,” Dolan says. He walks away and seems to signal with his eyes to guards, and then some assistants call out, “Hold him,” apparently in reference to the fan.

It was not clear if any fan was actually banned. The Madison Square Garden company said in a statement, “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.”
