James Dolan Video: Watch Knicks Owner Embarrass Himself with Horrible Song

Guitar Jimmy is back at it again, and my ears are bleeding.

James Dolan, the laughable owner of the New York Knicks and Rangers, is the frontman of a band (and I use that term loosely) called JD and the Straight Shot, and if you've never heard of them and their music, then I salute you. It doesn't take long to realize that Dolan is one of those rich kids that always thought he had what it takes to be a rock star, but didn't have the talent to back it up.

The fact that this band exists is a testament to the fact that if you throw enough money at people, they'll sell their musical souls for anything. Dolan and his group of lackeys were opening for Aretha Franklin, which is insulting enough, but when he decided to play his latest hit, the clueless owner had fans running for the parking lot.

Dolan decided that with the additions of Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire, it was time to honor his prized possession with a little jam called "Fix the Knicks", which essentially is an ode to his incompetence. The entire song is about people asking him when the team is going to turn around and fans being frustrated with the Knicks' lack of results.

All of that failure has to do with Dolan's mismanagement and meddling, which led to the embarrassing Isiah Thomas era and the shameful departure of Donnie Walsh. If Guitar Jimmy wants a hint, the Knicks will turn it around when he sells the team and gets his hands out of the franchise, because his constant buffoonery is nothing but a needless distraction to a team that has a lot of promise for the first time in ages.

I would tell Dolan to avoid quitting his day job, but he should probably do that as well, seeing as he can't even do that right. He has failed as an owner and he's even worse as a musician, something that is seemingly impossible, but with Dolan, his incompetence knows no bounds. 

Sorry citizens of Gotham, but nothing will fix the Knicks as long as Dolan rules the roost at Madison Square Garden.
