Ever since James L. Dolan — scion of the Cablevision Dolans of Oyster Bay, Long Island — became chairman of the Madison Square Garden Company in 1999, the New York Knicks have been living in interesting times. Unfortunately, that interest has very rarely been generated by the quality of the basketball. The Knicks and their reclusive bluesman of a chairman are known for enforcing one of the most repressive media policies seen outside Pyongyang, and very little on-the-record information ever makes its way out of the mecca's secretive halls. But that's why journalism was invented, my friends. Hard-hitting, investigative sports journalism, like that of the award-winning ESPN documentary series 30 for 30. Here are my pitches for Knicks-centric 30 for 30s concentrating on the Dolan era.
