Knicks Owner James Dolan Calls Fan Altercation An

In a wide-ranging interview with NY sports-radio host Michael Kay, Dolan said he thought his team was "going to have a very successful offseason when it comes to free agents".

Dolan added, "I am not selling the team", shutting down reports he is looking into possible deals.

The fan yelled "sell the team!" at Dolan as the owner of the New York Knicks was entering the tunnel to exit the main bowl of the arena. Dolan called out the fan, telling him, "You want to not come to any more games?" and he should "enjoy watching them on TV".

The Knicks, of course, have been a rumored destination for Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant and Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving, both of whom are able to become unrestricted free agents in July. But upon learning that the fan moved sections to film a confrontation with Dolan, the lifetime ban was issued.

"They were stalking me. You are not allowed to stalk the owner and then confront him like that". However, he said, that changed when it "became clear that the whole thing was planned".

In Dolan's Tuesday interview, he was asked about the New York Daily News not being invited to press conferences.

"Not for nothing, I shouldn't have taken the bait", he said.
