With the draft taking place Thursday night, it’s clear Knicks owner James Dolan has other priorities.
Since nothing of importance is going on Thursday night and if you are Knicks fan, be sure to take the short trip to “The Winery” for a night of great food, smooth drinks and entertainment provided by “JD and the Straight Shot.”
The band, headlined by Knicks’ owner James Dolan will be playing all of your favorite “country blues” hits off such albums as “Can’t Make Tears” (ironic for Knicks fans huh?) and their latest all-acoustic album “Ballywhoo!” on Thursday night, as reported by ESPN.
Wait a second, I thought there was something going on Thursday night? Oh wait, yeah now I remember. The NBA Draft — how moronic of me not to remember. But I really wanted to see the band!
In case things for Knicks fans aren’t bad enough, nothing shows commitment to their team like their owner skipping one of the most important nights of the year to play with his garbage band.
So let’s put things into perspective with just how bad the Knicks are shall we? Jim signs “The Zen Master” Phil Jackson to become president of the team, a move that has sent the team on a crash course toward being the laughing stock of sports. I mean, let’s face it, it’s pretty bad when people aren’t talking about how horrible the Nets are in New York anymore because they are too busy talking about the Knicks.
Jackson signed on Derek Fisher, a coach who had zero coaching experience prior to taking the job. Great move Phil. Fisher would eventually be fired after compiling an overall record of 40 wins and 90 losses … yikes!
Jeff Hornacek was brought in and has been desperately trying to get the Knicks to play the outdated, prehistoric triangle offense. Since taking over, Hornacek has compiled a 31-51 record as the Knicks’ head coach. Not good.
Wait, there’s more. Joakim Noah, a good player but someone who has had big issues staying healthy was given a four year deal in the neighborhood of a cool $72 million. Good move.
Then there is Derrick Rose but we don’t have to get into that one do we?
Jackson also gave Carmelo Anthony a mega deal complete with a no-trade clause. The same clause that he is trying to get him to wave with repeated third-grade bullying antics.
Who knows where Kristaps Porzingis will end up after Thursday.
Talk about “singing the blues” because Knicks fans have plenty of reason to these days without Dolan even writing another album. So get a sitter for the kids, get your favorite shirt pressed and go on down to 155 Varick Street for an intimate night of enchanting hits with what will sure be a Grammy award winning band in the near future.
Hey Jimmy, I have an idea for a title of a new song….how about “my team is horrible.” But in all reality, does he really need to be at the draft? I’m sure Phil has everything under control.
