The Knicks didn’t even offer Kevin Durant a max contract, which led to Durant signing with inner city rival, the Brooklyn Nets. James Dolan, the kazoo-wielding charlatan/owner/dumbass of the Knicks, gifted Brooklyn one of the best basketball players in the world. Dolan has done some stupid stuff before, but this takes the cake.
I understand that you’d want to pass up a basketball player due to an Achilles injury. After all, it is one of the most devastating sports injuries known to man. But when you throw a beloved Knick like Charles Oakley out of Madison Square Garden, ban a news outlet from a press conference because you don’t like them, and you run your team to the ground, you deserve all the bad karma and hubris.
The Knicks had an unfortunate off-season this year. They failed to clinch the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft (surprise! Zion was picked first). Then, Kevin Durant hurts his Achilles. Then Durant and Kyrie Irving, two superstars heavily linked to the Knicks, go to New York... to play for the Nets. Perhaps this is karma rearing its ugly head at Dolan. Even this will be more entertaining than the Knicks this year.
If James Dolan was a personification of a Dungeons and Dragons class, he’d be a bard. In fact, he’d be the worst bard since Chuggaaconroy. In the meantime, enjoy James Dolan’s kazoo, which should come up every time the Knicks screw up.
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
