Noted Asshole James Dolan Called A Knicks Fan An Asshole During Tuesday’s Bulls Game


NY Post- Knicks owner James Dolan has turned his rage from Charles Oakley to a Knicks season-ticket holder from Astoria, Queens, engaging in a profane shouting match with him before Tuesday’s victory over the Bulls.

Deadspin reported the eccentric owner owned up to cursing out a fan after he got heckled. Dolan told the website: “I did call him an a–hole because he is an a–hole.” Mike Hamersky, a 35-year-old attorney, was drinking a beer near the lobby of the Garden while waiting for a friend before the Knicks-Bulls game when Dolan walked past. Hamersky said he shouted, “Sell the team, Jim!” before Dolan angrily approached him.

“That’s all I yelled,” Hamersky told The Post in a phone interview. “He continued to walk past me, opened the limo door, then closed the door, turned around and walked all the way back and said, ‘Who said that?’ Hamersky said he took credit, “Then [Dolan] got 2 inches from my face and started screaming. That’s all I said, and he started cursing at me. He said multiple times I’m not getting in the game. I never thought I’d be mentioned in the same breath as Oakley.”

Dolan charged him with being drunk and stated, “What if I told you, ‘You suck at your job?’” Hamersky said Dolan demanded to see his tickets and he refused. The Astoria native said he was followed by a security man for at least a block afterward. He shook the security man and got into the game. Dolan told his security detail not to let him into the arena.

A statement released by a Dolan spokesperson Wednesday night did not deny Dolan’s reaction. “As Jim clearly stated, no one should come to an event at The Garden feeling as though it’s OK to be verbally abusive or disrespectful to anyone — including the owner of the arena — and not expect to be told that their behavior is unacceptable. This fan was completely out of line last night and does not like the fact that he was told he was out of line, and so has chosen to spend the day Tweeting away looking for his 15 minutes of fame.”


When I first read this story, I got excited. I thought about how this could finally be the beginning of the end of the Dolan Era. Maybe if every Knicks fan that didn’t mind going up to that little Ewok fuck would tell Dolan that he’s an asshole and to go fuck himself, maybe just maybe he would think “There are more important things than owning a sports team, I think I’ll sell The Garden for a ridiculous profit and go about my life as a shitty singer/kazooer for my shitty band.” Or maybe Adam Silver would realize that this situation has to be fixed before the Knicks make it an even 25 years since they were consistently relevant in the NBA. But Silver needed a smoking gun racist audio tape to get rid of Donald Sterling. I don’t think that alien-looking son of a bitch can pull a Stern and ship out Dolan in a frozen envelope for the good of the league.

But that was before I remembered that James Dolan is a real life supervillain, except without superpowers, a brain, or a plan. Actually is calling every single person that doesn’t like you an alcoholic a plan? No? Okay. Dolan is the wart that has grown on New York’s ass that we have accepted that it’s not going to go away any time soon. The corporations will keep buying tickets to Knicks games, so Dolan will keep getting rich. If players or ex-players come out against him, he will pull the shit he did with Oakley. And if the millions and millions of fans won’t flood him with the hate and vitriol that he has filled us with, we might as well get used to him owning this team for the rest of his shitty life, which will probably be long because God hates the Knicks. And just for the record, I really don’t have a huge problem with Dolan calling this guy an asshole. If you call someone an asshole, they are well within their right to blindly call you an asshole back. Add in “Drunk” is Dolan’s crutch because he is a huge bitch boy.

However I do think that Knicks fans should keep telling James Dolan what they think of him. As fucked up as it is, I wish there were more games left in this abortion of a season so people could go up to Dolan during games, look him straight in the eye and tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit he is. Charles Oakley started this movement and finally another fan continued it. Maybe we could do a Barstool at the Ballroom where we buy tickets to a JD and the Straight Shot show, stuff ear plugs in our ears, and throw rotten tomatoes at Dolan. Again, I’m spitballing here. Dolan’s been the little rich fuck that tries to be loved by everyone by owning some of the shiniest toys in New York (even though he’s completely ruined one of them). If you see Dolan in the street, let him know how much you and all other New Yorkers hate him.

Oh yeah and buy a Fire Dolan shirt too. I think if everyone in the city is wearing one of these he just may take the hint.
