Did the Knicks Deny Magic Tickets?

Good seats at MSG are hard to come by, apparently even for Hall of Famers: “The next time Magic Johnson asks the Knicks for a seat along celebrity row, he first may want to ask Isiah Thomas for his forgiveness. The Daily News has learned that Johnson’s request for comp tickets to a Knicks game last month was rejected due in part to his criticism of Thomas, the team’s former president and head coach, who remains close to Garden chairman James Dolan. The Knicks would neither confirm nor deny that Johnson was told that they wouldn’t provide him with a ticket to the team’s Dec. 7 game against Portland. A person close to the team says that when the Knicks didn’t respond to Johnson’s request immediately, the Hall of Famer later called the club to let it know that he had made other plans. A league source, however, contends that the club was reluctant to give Johnson a ticket because the Knicks were upset with the former Laker and didn’t want to create a media firestorm at the Garden in the wake of his controversial comments relating to Thomas.”

    Knicks made a big mistake denying Magic tickets. They will definitely pay for that.

    Really, who the hell cares about Magic and Isiah anymore. They’re both just getting stale and embarrassing.

    Obviously the Garden didn’t see the NY Post article where Magic claimed LeBron wants to leave Cleveland and become a Knick.
