Over the weekend, Deadspin revealed an email exchange between Irving Bierman and James Dolan. Bierman has been a Knick fan for over 60 years. Dolan has owned the Knicks the past 15 years, which not coincidentally are the worst 15 years in Knick history. Bierman’s email to Dolan was frustrated, but civil. Dolan’s response was aloof, uppity, tone-deaf, and actually surprisingly rude, ending with him telling Bierman to stop following the Knicks and instead root for the Nets.

Today, P&T published a letter I’ve written to James Dolan, a letter crafted in the same style as the one he wrote to Bierman. If you’re a fan of the Knicks or the NBA, you should check it out. Hell, if you’re a fan of civility, check it out.
