For the first, maybe ever, James Dolan’s thoughts and feelings aren’t making Knicks and general NBA fans loathe him even more. Dolan’s desire for the lockout to end is well-known, and he’s reportedly using even stronger language to express his displeasure with the lack of progress now that things are getting ultra-tense in the labor war. From the NY Post: “Knicks owner James Dolan blew off the two-day desperation labor session between the NBA and players’ union in Manhattan with one source saying he has been sickened by the failure of his fellow owners to make a deal. Dolan is on the negotiating committee and a five-minute train ride away from the latest talk, which ended without a deal last night at 11 p.m. after an 11-hour session. Tuesday, the Knicks were preparing — just in case — for an imminent settlement and lifting of the lockout. Players have been unable to use the practice facility since July 1. According to a source, the coaches and staff started setting up for the preseason by bringing jerseys and equipment into the locker rooms. It was the first time that had occurred during the nearly 4 1/2-month lockout.”
