New York should revoke Dolan’s license

I know the Dolan family owns the Knicks, but they don’t own New York.

They can keep playing here if they want, but if they want to call the team the New York Knicks, they have to sell the team to someone who will build something New York-like, something that works, and isn’t built around one very inadequate person’s ego.

If anything about New York has been constant for all its history is scale, longevity, audacity, philosophy and sheer excellence when compared to the rest of the country. The Knicks make more sense in a city that’s famous for humiliating itself. I’ll leave that to your imagination. But they’ve had their chance. It’s time for the Dolans and New York to take leave of each other.

Maybe Staten Island wants them?
