James Dolan, the owner of the Knicks, doesn’t care there’s a lockout. He doesn’t care that most of the country has put basketball on the back burner. He’s still managed to find a new way to annoy the crap out of New York Knicks fans everywhere, without even stepping foot near MSG.

The July 27th audience at Jones Beach Theater on Long Island won’t soon forget the experience of seeing Dolan and his blues band, Straight Shot, opening for Aretha Franklin. Rockstar Dolan debuted “Fix the Knicks,” his new parody song about the woebegone team that can’t seem to get it right under his ownership. His song makes light of certain flaws that the Knicks possess, like the flimsy defense, the attempt to sign big name stars, and former GM and Knicks Fans Public Enemy #1 Isiah Thomas.

One of the verses goes:

“Doing my best,
yes, that’s my promise
I check with my friends, call Isiah Thomas
Pay no mind to those nasty critics
They haven’t the thing to fix the Knicks”

According to the New York Post, “An audible groan could be heard from the Jones Beach crowd at the sound of the former Knicks president’s name being sung by Dolan.”

You know what else won’t fix the Knicks? Making parody songs that joke around about communicating with Isiah Thomas, the man who not only messed up the team with his poor managerial skills but who was found guilty of sexual harassment to the tune of $11.6 million.

Check out the video below to see the musical genius that is James Dolan:

We get it, James, you’re trying as hard as you can to alienate your entire fan base. Almost there, buddy!
