James Dolan has a huge decision to make this upcoming offseason, whether or not to keep or let Phil Jackson go. All the evidence points to that Phil should be let go, a few fans feel differently, but the consensus vote is that Phil is no longer wanted in NYC. Phil has done very little good and a whole lot of bad in his short tenure with the Knicks and his age/health aren't showing a long future for him in this position, so why bother bringing him back for the last two years of the deal. Obviously the opt-out clause is there for a reason, so why not use it?
James Dolan has been adamant about honoring the contract and respecting the fans suggestion that he stays far away from any basketball decisions. This leads me to believe he won't be opting out of this contract. Even though opting out would technically be honoring the contract still. I don't believe Dolan will do it. I don't believe Dolan will do it because he's trying to spite the fans. They didn't want him getting involved, so now he's not getting involved, and the Knick fans are suffering. Exactly what that psychopath wants, the Knick fans to suffer for blaming it all on him, even though that's not the case whatsoever. He's just so out of his mind he truly believes that.
Dolan doesn't care that the fans are angry either because he's making just as much money as before. Knicks are going to sell tickets regardless, half the people that show up don't even care about the basketball game they care about the event. It's a lose lose situation for the real fans. Either Phil stays they continue to suck and try to run an ancient offense, or they fire Phil, Dolan starts getting involved again, and the organization keeps going in this circle of dysfunction for another 20 years. The GM, Coach, President is not the problem, James Dolan is the fucking problem. Knicks will never amount to anything with that lunatic running the show.
