Basically what we learned here is celebs go to games for free. They call the garden and get tickets.
Hawks was one of those celebs. However he went on talk shows and trashed Dolan and the team.
Next time he calls in for his free tickets they say "that will be $8700."

Dolan is the bigger douche
Hawke is the bigger douche
Where is my weed? Seriously who took it this isnt cool

Woodie Allen got the same treatment from Dolan and still pays for his own tickets. I don't want to call out anyone's fandom, but...

Right from the beginning, this kid wanted to be a Knick. I'm crazy enough because I can relate: I asked to be a Knick. To ask for that you have to be a certain type of competitor.

Dolan wanted Allen to do a spot for MSG, I believe. Woody doesnt even do Directors commentary on the DVDs to his own films. Dolan didnt like it, but it wasnt out of character for him to say no. Allen has been a season ticket holder forever.

I don't think rich people should get free tickets, so I have no side in this battle

Sorry, I just don't care whether they fight or not or what they're fighting about. It's just none of my business.

Hawke is an idiot. There is a way to be a fan and objective but Dolan gives those seats I assume go unsold for "celebrity row" and they can use their likeness on promo's. If you go on Fallon he kind of "Should" be positive about the team. Not stupid homer like, but your getting the tickets for return of some value.
Hawke was not kicked out, he can buy tickets like anyone else and talk about what ever he wants. So in my book Hawke is being the lessor for this.
Dolan is petty but the reality is Hawke should have the common sense.
I have a friend that owns and restaurant and he often picks up my bill. If the food super amazing every time? No. I will never say a bad word because its just plain rude to do so. Hawke was being rude after being given free tickets. For him to not pay for his own tickets proves he is not a Knick fan. That, or he is just plain stupid.
Knicks1248: 1. Dolan should be more involved! 2. Why would any knick fan want pick 8, when that spot has a history of producing marginal NBA taken. (He prefers pick 9th instead)

Need a choice for A&B, please.
The elite of society speaks. "I've dutifully been a fanboy of Lebron..." Good riddance. Enjoy Brooklyn, ahole.

Hope is a good thing. And nothing good ever dies, but it just may not make the playoffs.

Hawke...He wasn't kicked out or told to stay away. He was getting tix for free and now isn't and is acting like he's owed them. Have no use for people who have to be paid to be a 'fan'.

Dolan and Hawke are nowhere in the same stratosphere as far as rich. Hawke might as well be "poor" to Dolan. Dolan net worth 1.5B. Hawke 55M.
In that sense, Dolan is the pettiest dude when it comes to anything Knicks.
FYI...Oakley 52M

Its petty but at the same time its just plain old bad manners to accept a gift and be critical of the guy that gives it to you.

Holy crap, Oak's worth 52M??? Glad he's doing alright with the car washes and stuff. After playing 19 years, he deserves it.
NBA total salary: $46,597,000
