A billionaire fight is brewing.
New York Knicks PR Twitter account released a rather bizarre statement on Wednesday in response to a New York Daily News article that was published about Dolan’s ongoing legal feud with Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer and the city of Inglewood, California.
The Daily News article that spurred the statement is about Dolan’s quest to prevent the Clippers from building a new arena in Inglewood. Dolan owns The Forum, a historic arena which is also in Inglewood. A new venue there would threaten The Forum’s ability to get A-list acts, and so Dolan has undertaken quite the campaign to stop it from happening.
The statement published in full a comment that MSG gave to the Daily News, which alleges that Timothy Knight, the CEO of Tribune Publishing, has a vendetta against Dolan’s Madison Square Garden Company dating back to when Dolan fired Knight from Newsday, which MSG owns.
