James Dolan continues to screw up now with "Knickstape"
Two audio technicians were stationed at two corners of the court - one a few feet just behind the Knicks bench, the other diagonally opposite - and they were holding those umbrella-shaped contraptions known as parabola microphones, which fed the audio into a DAT recorder on the truck on the loading dock.
These guys had one directive from Dolan: Record every syllable Carmelo Anthony utters and absorbs while he's on the court and on the bench, the Madison Square Garden CEO ordered them, and send the tape directly to me.
Someone was bound to post it. So I did it to save the hater talk. What's everyone's opinion on this? Melo told the news it was over and done with and now his owner is recording court talk? if I'm the other team this owner just pulled the ***** card out.
Wouldn't this be more appropriate for the Knicks forum? You post it here before its even posted in there?
you want me to post something that may be interpreted as negativity there? It's not really a Knicks news. It's a James Dolan is an idiot news, he's an NBA owner so that's why I put it in the NBA forum.
I don't get the logic. What is his ultimate goal here? Is he trying to protect Melo?
That's what I was thinking. The trenches is where the talk is. How many NBA players haven't said what was said in the game is personal. Now you have an owner w/ an umbrella recording everything said on the court? I mean WTF? for what?
Ugh. Come on Dolan. Watch Dolan try to trade Carmelo for someone like Gasol. The best thing about Dolan is his willingness to spend, but the worst thing is literally everything else. It's like he goes out of his way to screw up the team.
It's likely that this isn't that big of a deal, but if it's true, and I were Carmelo, I'd be extremely pissed at this.
