Knicks fans can only hope.
Former New York Knicks superstar Charles Oakley is not a big fan of current Knicks owner James Dolan. Oakley isn't exactly alone in that opinion. Knicks fans have been hating on Dolan for a while now, especially with the team's horrid results out on the court. For example, the team is 15-62 this season and are headed for a last-place finish in the entire league. Obviously not a good result for a team with so much history.
Oakley shared his thoughts on ownership during the pilot episode of The Ringer's brand new show Tough Chef with Charles Oakley. The former player took a different approach to address Dolan. Instead of calling him out, Oakley named a potential replacement when it comes to ownership. According to Oakley, one of the most powerful businessmen in the world, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos could buy the team.
"I heard that. Jeff Bezos wants to buy the Knicks. He still wants to do some real estate in New York so why not buy the Garden?" Oakley said.
The Ringer's Bill Simmons and Jason Concepcion were visibly shocked by the suggestion, although they did admit that it would be an incredible story if it were to happen.
Clearly, Oakley and the Knicks fan base are fed up with Dolan and are looking for any glimmer of hope. Although a Bezos run Knicks would be a sight to behold.
Do you think it could happen?
