Growing up I was a casual fan of the New York Knicks. Once the Isiah Thomas era made its impact, I have to admit, I lost interest.
On February 8, 2015 a story came out about an unfortunate exchange between Knicks owner James Dolan and a lifelong Knicks fan named Irving Bierman. It became a media firestorm.
A firestorm that gave us an idea. Two days later, I emailed Mr. Dolan simply to see if he would respond. I did some research and found an address that was attributed to Dolan and gave it a shot.
And then forgot about it.
Until he responded today.
Do I know it’s him? No. Did it come from an email address with his name at a company he owns? Yes. Did I ask permission to print the email on StangelBros.com? Yes. Was he okay with it? He wrote “Go ahead.”
Here is my email that I received today which, again, may or may not be from James Dolan, with my original note to him below. Go Knicks!
