1. Assuming ownership of the New York Knicks
As we’ve seen throughout this list of bad things that James Dolan has done to ruin his reputation as both a businessman and a man in general, it can all be traced from one thing: his decision to assume primary ownership of the New York Knicks. Without the Knicks, Dolan would just be known as that rich guy with a goatee who provides you with cable TV. But with the Knicks? He’s so much more: he’s Jim Dolan; master of disaster, one of the worst owners in professional sports and genuine “model of unintelligent management.”
Thank you, James Dolan. For everything.
