During Friday night's Bulls-Knicks game, Dolan ordered two MSG Network employees to keep tabs on Knicks star Carmelo Anthony.
Two audio technicians were stationed at two corners of the court - one a few feet just behind the Knicks bench, the other diagonally opposite - and they were holding those umbrella-shaped contraptions known as parabola microphones, which fed the audio into a DAT recorder on the truck on the loading dock.
These guys had one directive from Dolan: Record every syllable Carmelo Anthony utters and absorbs while he's on the court and on the bench, the Madison Square Garden CEO ordered them, and send the tape directly to me. http://deadspin.com/5975753/james-do...armelo-anthony
They also have handlers for the players on the road, and JR has a financial guy watching his spending. Remember Shawne Williams? He had 24 hr a day babysitter. Think of his career on the Knicks vs. every other location and where he is know.
Knicks are paranoid and don't operate under don't look don't tell, it's we will watch you and force you to behave.
