After what could only be described as a magical Saturday afternoon, Boomer and Craig got things started Monday morning by discussing the Mikey Strong charity hockey game.
New York was outclassed by Boston, 108-97, and it appears that Dolan got tired of watching his team lose … again.
Now that Rex Ryan has been evicted from his extended stay on the coaching hot seat, there is a vacancy. Don’t bother checking rates on Trivago or Kayak. I understand there is a reservation being held for the Knicks’ Derek Fisher.
Putting the Knicks on national television on Dec. 25 is equal parts sadism and masochism. They’re off to the worst start in team history, which is saying a lot when you consider how bad they’ve been.
If you look, you’ll see the winning organizations are more organic in their success. It starts, like it often does, with ownership, which is where we hit our dead end on Seventh Avenue.

James Dolan says he has an appreciation for just how difficult it is to build a championship team, which is why he hopes he has in Phil Jackson what he’s had for years in Glen Sather — someone who knows what he’s doing.
I don’t care about hockey. I might not even watch any of the games. But if the Rangers win the Cup, it would mean James Dolan is capable of being an owner of a championship team.
As the Steve Kerr negotiations dragged on longer and longer, it became more and more clear that something wasn’t right. It was truly an “I’ve got a bad feeling about this” situation.
Count Knicks owner James Dolan as one who thinks the NBA got things right on Tuesday.
