James Dolan doesn't want Knicks City Dancers to dance: Report

James Dolan is unhappy about the New York Knicks poor start, and is apparently taking it out on the Knicks City Dancers.

The Knicks owner was “ready to erupt” during Sunday’s lopsided loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to the New York Daily News. After his team lapsed into a 23 point second quarter deficit, he reportedly went stomping across the new Madison Square Garden Chase Bridge looking for his new general manager Steve Mills.

After finding Mills in a suite, Dolan laid down the law for the game-day entertainment, by ordering the team’s dancers to stop dancing.

Dolan reportedly told Mills to reduce the dancers' role to mainly tossing T-shirts into the crowd.

“Why? No one seems to know, except the standard answer is usually ‘that’s Dolan,’” the Daily News’ Frank Isola wrote about the owner's Footloose edict.

Dolan reportedly told coaches and executives before this season that he expects nothing short of an NBA title in 2013-14. New York is off to a 1-2 start and apparently Dolan's new hands-on approach to reach that goal begins by becoming Reverend Shaw Moore?

According the News, the 13 season-old troupe performed only one routine on Sunday.

“There’s no need to panic,” Carmelo Anthony said on Monday. “It’s three games into the season. We’re still trying to figure a lot of things out.”

Try figuring out Dolan first.


  1. I don't blame him for going off, it's about time he showed he wants to win. I don't understand why he's taking their bad play on the dancers because they're doing what they're supposed to be doing. Really lately, the dancers are the only reason to smile. Maybe he should make some of those players go out and toss t-shirts.

  2. This guy is an idiot who thinks money solves all problems, he is the one that needs to sit down.

  3. The ball boys will be the next to go.l

  4. Mike Woodson needs to have a steady starting five then 6-7-8-9 and quit trying to match up with everyone else. stop that small ball. the better teams are too BIG
    that's why they play from behind so much early.
