New York Daily News sports editor issues savage response to Knicks owner James Dolan

James Dolan

New York Daily News sports editor Kyle Wagner on Tuesday issued a savage response to Knicks owner James Dolan.

Dolan went on the radio earlier in the day to address many topics, including most notably his publicized exchange with a heckling fan. Another topic that came up in his interview with “The Michael Kay Show” was the team banning Daily News reporter Stefan Bondy from certain press events.

“There are certain journalists that, you know, actually wish ill will toward the team,” Dolan said in defense of his decision. “They have never written a positive story about the team. Like the (Kristaps) Porzingis trade, those guys were like, it’s the most horrible thing, another horrible thing has happened.”

Wagner issued a response shortly after Dolan’s comments.

“MSG’s grudge against the Daily News predates the journalists writing about the Knicks in our pages today,” the statement said. “If the tone of coverage tends to be negative, it’s because the team is 41 games under .500 and has the worst winning percentage in the NBA over the last 20 seasons.”

You can’t deny the facts.
