An Open Letter to Charles Dolan

Hi Chuck. Listen, I know it's not easy having a loser son (just ask my dad, he'll tell you), and I know you have been busy trying to take Cablevision private for 10 billion or so, and I know the Knicks payroll is just chump change to you, but.......

Chuck you gotta do something about that kid of yours and what he's done to the Knickerbockers!! Sure, everybody's got to do something and better he screws up the Knicks than one of your real businesses, but there's got to be a limit.

Look at it this way Chuck. Danny Ainge is not exactly the sharpest tool in the shed. He's a chucker, a biter, and pretty much a loser. But even he has figured it out in Boston. Not that the Celtics are the be all and and end all, not that the solution there is very long term. But they are in the top of the Atlantic, winners of 8 out of their last 10, whilst your boy's toy is already 7 games behind them, losers of 8 of their last 10. I'd point out that the Celtics payroll is "only" 75 million compared to the Knicks' 89 million, but I know that you'd walk by 14 mil on the sidewalk without bothering to bend over and pick it up (just not worth your time, it's only Zach Randolf's salary).

I guess it's sweet how you indulge Jimmy's boycrush on Isiah and all, but maybe just give the two of them $50 million each and unlimited multiple trips around the world airline tickets (or maybe their own plane and pilot) and get someone who knows and cares about basketball in the executive offices of the Ga-den.
