Dear Mr. Dolan and Knicks Management Team,
What I don’t understand is why it seems to mean more to the fans than it does to management. We are very, very loyal fans. That may be our problem. There is no loss for ownership when a bad product is put out there. I for one take offense to that. I also take offense to the fact that there are gag orders on the General Manager, the scouting team, and even the coach and players to an extent. The fans have a right to know what direction we are going in.
We are going to lose Carmelo Anthony and that is going to be a very sad day. He has no reason to stay. He deserves to win a championship. He deserves to be in the MVP talks. Playing on this team he is robbed of that. He gives 150% every night. He needs help. He is a superstar not God.
We are also going to lose a lot of young fans to Brooklyn. They are up and coming and the powers that be there are not afraid to put people in charge that know more than they do.
I am asking you to take your ego out of ownership. Put people in place that can run the team. We need basketball minds that know the business, players, and have reputations. Let them do the work, do the interviews, let them get us to be where we should be. Than you can take responsibility for turning it around.
Just a little about me. I am a huge fan that asks for tickets for my birthday, Christmas, or anytime my family wants to get me something. I didn’t go on vacation last year for my anniversary thinking I may miss a playoff game. Instead my husband took me to a playoff game. I honestly care about the team, Melo and the NY product.
