    They are the most valuable franchise in NBA, but not the world. They come in 5th behind Dallas Cowboys, Yanks, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.

    According to Forbes, Knicks are the most valuable NBA franchise, worth an estimated $4 billion—have the league’s worst record in the 21st century. Since 2000 they have a win percentage of .416, despite paying more luxury tax for exceeding the salary cap than any other franchise. In short, Dolan’s New York Knicks have spent the most to perform the worst.

    Ahh Ok Most in NBA. Thanks

    If I am running the NBA and I have a team that is paying more into the league than any other, I don't care if they win or lose as long as the owner isn't a problem. Dolan has bordered on it but hasn't crossed the line enough for the NBA to walk away from that revenue.



    **** off. Where's my title

    Not sure if anyone watches hockey, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a better player than Panarin. He’s incredible with ice vision and crisp, smart passing and plays.

    Incredible to watch.

I also think over time, they steal his fanbase by recruiting at an early age. If kids grow up being used to the Nets being good and the knicks sucking, they will pick the Nets. Manhattan will always stay knicks but Brooklyn and queens will easily shift to brooklyn.
    And with JayZ spring Brooklyn apparel?
    Combine that with Dolan's rep and people getting sick of the Knicks losing?

    I think that in 2-4 years, if the Nets are successful by making the playoffs and going deep into them, Brooklyn will start to gain a serious foothold and damage the knicks net worth.
    Agree completely..... (even if the owner is a Russian oligarch. ) This from a former diehard Knick fan.

    Dolan is equally as horrible. Look at what he did to Oakley. Sexual harassment suits and pay offs because of Isaiah Thomas the hiring him as the president of the woman's team? Kicking fans out of the garden. Banning fans in front of the garden and calling them alcoholics to the press to make your point. He actually had knicks fans removed from a bar where his band was playing because they razzed him.
    Dolan tries to put on a nice guy persona but it is evident that he is not by his actions

    Sterling was a shite but he was no where near as bad of an owner for the time that Dolan has been.
    We can just agree they both suck

    Watched The Irishman last night.

    Good, not great. Definitely interesting as I wasn’t familiar w the Hoffa story.

    It’s a one time watch, not a classic you’d watch over and over.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    Last guest just getting ready to leave! Can't just walk out the door and hail a cab! At least they brought real Italian bread from Fortunato's.

    It was a very good time. We ate and drank from Thurs evening until this morning! My brother greeted me with a German schnapps for breakfast! Multi course dinner, fish and several traditional Sicilian dishes. Huge turkey stuffed with olives, sausage, ground beef, rice, bacon and medley of veggies. Good time had by all.

    The Yale/Harvard protest at their football game was a joke! Take your protests outside the stadium and let the teams finish the game in daylight...Left agenda teaching these poor kids to live in an alternate world.
