"You are not allowed to stalk the owner and then confront him like that".
"The ban is only coming from the fact that he planned it". You're reading too much of the Daily News.' That was what we were thinking of doing.
Dolan also addressed rumors that he was considering selling the team.
Nonetheless, Dolan himself appears to have refuted this claim completely, stating that his Knicks are primed for a very busy summer. "They were stalking me". But upon learning that the fan moved sections to film a confrontation with Dolan, the lifetime ban was issued.
"What they're doing is they're trying to destabilize what we have because they know we're favored". They are rumored to be in pursuit of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, who could both become unrestricted free agents after the 2018-19 season. However, he said, that changed when it "became clear that the whole thing was planned".
He's impeded the New York Daily News' access at times because he doesn't like their coverage.
The idea that Dolan might sell the team gained steam last month after the sports personality Bill Simmons said on his podcast that Dolan was "courting offers", citing people he talked to at the All-Star Game. "We can't respond because of the National Basketball Association rules, etc., but that doesn't stop them from telling us, and they do". It's the youngest team in the National Basketball Association. "But look, not for nothing, but I shouldn't have taken the bait".
As for the advice of the fan, he asserted, "What he's really saying is, 'Quit.' It's not saying, 'Sell the team.' It's, 'Quit'".
Dolan ended the interview by making it clear that he was not going to sell the team or quit his job.
