Editor's Box: New York Knick problems begin and end with clueless ownership.
Vision, leadership smart decision making, strategic thinking, hiring of "A" talent," all the foundations of a winning organization, are seldom seen and rarely found in the MSG hierarchy. Rather than reward performance,seek out imminently qualified talent with best-in-class skill sets, Dolan has surrounded himself with a cadre of well-compensated sycophants too afraid to tell him the uncensored truth-he is doing a very bad job. Dolan, whose position at MSG rests primarily on his lineage-his father owns the company, is clearly not qualified to be head of the Knicks much less chairman of a publicly traded company. No where in his professional DNA could you find anything other than riding his fathers coats tails.To protect his massive ego, unbridled insecurity, and marginal competence he subjects MSG employees to paranoid histrionics and a gulag media policy that prohibits any MSG employee from speaking to the media-get this-without permission and an authorized Garden stooge to supervise all communication. Yes in the biggest media market in world in the 21st century. Now in the mother of all delusions, he states that these Knicks are championship caliber? In clinical terms this is called hallucinatory self -deception. If that were not enough, he is now limiting the performer of the Knick City Dancers. Alrighty then..... I guess their constant gyrations and hyper-kinetic performances are the reason you retained Chris Smith over adding a quality big to offset your atrocious rebounding and anemic shot blocking.
