Eric Walden: With David Fizdale’s firing, the Knicks’ clown car rolls merrily on

Does Knicks owner Jim Dolan really not understand why fans of the franchise clamor for him to sell the team? To his face? Does he think such occurrences are isolated incidents?

There’s got to be a significant amount of hubris involved to not recognize that you, in fact, are the problem.

Coach David Fizdale was made the latest scapegoat for Dolan’s ineptitude on Friday afternoon, fired for amassing a 4-18 mark that included eight straight losses, the last two of which came Monday in a 44-point embarrassment against the Bucks, and Thursday in a mind-numbingly awful 37-point blowout at the hands of the Denver Nuggets.
