NBA

James Dolan finally does something for his fans

Knicks, James Dolan

New York Knicks owner James Dolan is offering a nice gesture for fans of his team in light of the coronavirus pandemic, delaying the renewal process for 2020-21 season tickets.

According to a report from Ian Begley of SNY, the Knicks are making this move to give their fans more time to make a decision with regards to tickets for next season.

The NBA announced earlier this month that it has suspended the 2019-20 regular season due to ongoing concerns with the coronavirus. At this point, it’s not clear when play might resume, though some, including Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, have suggested that the season could play all the way into July (or even August). Ultimately, though, Cuban knows that doctors and health officials will have the final say.

Begley did have more Knicks information:

Utah Jazz big man Rudy Gobert became the first confirmed case of COVID-19 in the NBA earlier this month. His teammate, Donovan Mitchell, was diagnosed shortly after. Since then, several other players have tested positive, including four from the Brooklyn Nets.

At 21-45 overall, the Knicks have struggled to find a rhythm this season. The team had plans of celebrating the 50th anniversary of their 1969-70 championship on March 21. Sadly, though, with the season being suspended, the celebration was cancelled.

As of earlier this week, Dolan had not committed to paying the hourly workers at Madison Square Garden, despite the fact that most of the other teams around the NBA have taken steps to do so.
