One dick head email apparently cancels out the other. That seems to be the case with Knicks owner James Dolan who responded to a disgruntled Knicks fan the other day by calling him an ‘alcoholic’ and that he should ‘root for the Nets’.
Here’s what NBA commissioner Adam Silver told the New York Post‘s Tim Bontemps:
“Jim is a consummate New Yorker,” Silver said. “Jim got an unkind email and responded with an unkind email.”
And if you’re interested here’s the Dolan email back to the fan courtesy of Deadspin’s Timothy Burke.
You are a sad person. Why would anybody write such a hateful letter. I am.just guessing but ill bet your life is a mess and you are a hateful mess. What have you done that anyone would consider positive or nice. I am betting nothing. In fact ill bet you are negative force in everyone who comes in contact with you. You most likely have made your family miserable. Alcoholic maybe. I just celebrated my 21 year anniversary of sobriety. You should try it. Maybe it will help you become a person that folks would like to have around. In the mean while start rooting.for the Nets because the Knicks dont want you.
