James Dolan is Keeping Phil Jackson to Remain His Human Shield
“I really think James Dolan looks at Phil Jackson and says ‘hey, at least we’ll stay interesting and I’m not going to be the one taking all the heat.’”
Despite being the league’s biggest punchline year in and year out, Jonas Knox thinks Knicks owner James Dolan loves having his team in the limelight. ‘Any publicity is good publicity is one thing’, but Knox believes Dolan is using Phil Jackson as a human shield as well.
“It shades James Dolan from being known as the worst owner in sports because Phil’s getting a lot of the blame,” Knox said.
Knox thinks at the very least, if they Knicks can’t be good on the court, at least they can be good at getting all the headlines with Phil Jackson still around manning the traveling circus.
“If you’re going to be terrible and if you’re going to be bad why not make a little money while you’re at it?”
Special Thank You to Dan Beyer, Jonas Knox, and John Ramos
Fox Sports Radio is a lot of things.
It's national sports talk, conversational humor, and the occasional scorching take. It's individual personalities, debating partnerships, and Cindy Katz bringing muffins to a meeting. There are endless ways to describe what it is we do here, and even more laughs to be had with the people inside the walls of the place we call "work" every day. That is, when it is all said and done, what these past few months of radio from 3-6 pm est. will be remembered for.
Never has a radio show so accurately portrayed (without trying to do so) what it is like to work at a company as unique as ours here at Fox Sports Radio, and for that Dan Beyer and Jonas Knox deserve all the credit in the world. The smiles they put on our faces upstairs with the streams every day, the way they were able to peel back the curtain for the national audience and see that it really is just a few regular guys making all the magic happen, and the relationship they built with each one of their listeners is what we will remember most from this "BKR Era" of radio.
So, without any more mush (they didn't die or anything) we present this piece of viral sensation.
What If I told you, there was a Mexican-American Youth Soccer Coach who didn't speak a lick of Spanish, who turned the radio world upside down?
