One of our longtime posters, Frank, asked if I could share this open letter he wrote to James Dolan. So here ya go! – BC Dear Mr. Dolan, I have been a Knicks fan for as long as I can remember. I remember scanning the box scores in the paper as a kid, looking for Bill Cartwright’s and Bernard King’s line after every game.

I was so caught up in the great sports day with the dramatic Masters final and the Warriors/Spurs that I forgot that this team was still playing. At the half, the Knicks trail the Raptors 54-51. The Knicks have a chance to avoid losing 50 games! Let’s go, Knicks!
Oh, right, the Knicks are still playing basketball games. How adorable. Midway through the third period, the awful Knicks lead the even more awful 76ers. Let’s go! Knicks?
The Knicks and their soon-to-be long term head coach, Kurt Rambis, take on the Charlotte Hornets and their annoyingly competent head coach, Steve Clifford. Let’s go, Knicks!

The Knicks take on the Nets in a game that makes Jerian Grant’s debut as a starting point guard for the Knicks due to Jose Calderon perhaps being out for the rest of the season. The Nets are shockingly kind of fun to watch now, so even with Porzingis out, this might actually be a fun game to watch. Always fun to watch the Lopez twins play each other. Let’s go, Knicks! The meaningless winning streak begins soon!
