National Basketball Association team owner threatens to ban heckler from attending games

  • Charles Oakley and James Dolan

According to witnesses, two cops and security identified and questioned the fan before he was asked to leave Madison Square Garden. He then asked the fan if he would like to not come to anymore Knicks games and called him rude.

Apparently, freedom of speech isn't allowed inside Madison Square Garden.

The unidentified fan asked why he wouldn't be able to come to games and said he was just giving "an opinion". One fan began heckling Dolan during the game, and TMZ Sports provided the video of it.

Knicks fans have been dealing with disappointing seasons for the past 15 years.

Rather than ignore the comment, Dolan elected to address the heckler, waving him over and asking, "You think I should sell the team? Enjoy watching them on TV".

Soon after the New York Knicks lost another game Saturday afternoon to fall to 13-53, Knicks owner James Dolan was seen leaving the floor of the Garden in Manhattan when a fan yelled out and told Dolan to "sell the team", something that has been rumored in the news recently. It is not clear if the fan has been banned.

Oakley has been very outspoken against the NY native.

That 2015 episode led to an effort by some fans to put up a billboard near MSG calling on Dolan to sell the team.

He was arrested at Madison Square Garden in February 2017 and removed from his courtside seat after an apparent argument with New York's owner. The son of Cablevision founder Charles Dolan, who acquired MSG and its sports properties in the mid-1990s, Dolan took control of the operations of the Knicks and the Garden in 1999, just in time for the team to make an unexpected run to the NBA Finals.

Knicks owner James Dolan is known for getting into it with fans of the team, as they clearly have no problem voicing their opinion about the state of the team. At a record of 13-54, the team sits in last place in both the Eastern Conference and the entire league.
