07:21 AM ET 11.05 | James Dolan, apparently, remains resolute in his championship expectations. According to several sources, Dolan was ready to erupt after the Knicks surrendered 40 first-quarter points [on Sunday] and as the deficit ballooned to 23 Dolan went hunting for Steve Mills, the team's new president and general manager. ... [Mills] knows Dolan means business -- as does Mike Woodson. ... Being the Knicks coach under Dolan has never been a walk in the park, but it's especially difficult now with Dolan expecting a championship. Perhaps the only group that has it worse than Woodson's staff is -- and I can't believe I'm typing this -- the Knicks City Dancers. Dolan has become such a hands-on owner -- figuratively speaking -- that, according to a source, he doesn't want the dancers dancing.

It's official; Dolan is out of his mind. And if he's crazy now, just wait until the Bricks are knocked out of the playoffs in the 1st round.

Agreed....Lord He was out of his mind years ago letting Isiah run the team and then signing Amare to that long term deal....Classic Dolan being Classic Dolan....

So far... so good. Ain't much on defense but I like the offensive turn around.

We have a chance at 50... and getting into the tournament. That's all we can ask for right now.



That and a win tonight against the hated ones... ;-)

I here ya. I think their defense will get a little better prob not a lot but at least a little. Their offense is pretty crazy how many different ways they can score. So far Dirk really hasnt even had to carry the load and he is still getting 20+ a night.

I'm looking forward to Larkin getting out there in a couple of weeks. Liked that kid a lot in the draft.

"Irving's ascension after only two NBA seasons has to make Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert feel very good about the future of his franchise, but also more than a little nervous.
After all, James first made the list as a Cavalier and we all know what happened when he had a chance to leave Cleveland. And he was a hometown guy.

Is Cleveland, which is building around Irving with a young team and perhaps Andrew Bynum if his knees manage to hold up headed for another round of heartbreak? There's long been talk that Irving, a West Orange, N.J., product, wants to come home and play for the Knicks.
The earliest he can leave Cleveland is July, 2016, after playing this season and the next two seasons for the Cavs. It's down the road, but it's not very difficult to imagine a scenario with Irving ending up in the Garden."

Mr. Dolan has dame-bramage! The Bricks will eventually get better but will disappoint because they have no real point guard in Felton and lack chemistry. Melo looks lost on offense and plays defense every now and then with low energy. I say they will not win 50 games.

Can't wait to see him also. At least we have a center that's way better than Dampier. Dalembert can hit shots and FT. The best thing is his help out defense. Back to Larkin, I hope he is close to a Barea type player.

He needs to see a shrink go on a long vacation or something. Reap the benefits of raking in profits but not a title contender immediately. Not a bad tradeoff considering the franchise is worth a billion. Look over at Brooklyn they have a short sighted view, championship or bust but it will get ugly in a few years IMO with no assets
