The New York Knicks lost 102-94 to the Sacramento Kings on Saturday at Madison Square Garden, dropping their NBA-worst record to 13-53.
Knicks owner James Dolan headed for the tunnel in the final minutes, and a fan told him to “Sell the team.”
Here’s how a pissy Dolan responded:
“You think I should sell the team? Do you not want to come to any more games?”
“That’s rude. No, it’s not an opinion. You know what? Enjoy watching them on TV.”
According to TMZ, Dolan then had security kick the fan out of MSG:
Then James sics security on him!
Witnesses tell us the fan was held while 2 cops and security came over to ID and question him before asking him to leave. It’s unclear if he’s been permanently banned from Knicks games … we’re working on it.

Knicks fans have every right to complain about Dolan and an organization that hasn’t produced competitive basketball in many years (they haven’t won over 37 games in a season since 2012-13), and is only getting worse. Have thicker skin, James.
Update- A spokesperson from The Madison Square Garden Company issued a statement on the matter:
