Dolan appeared on ESPN's The Michael Kay Show on Tuesday and called the interaction an "ambush" and one that the fan planned to do as the video quickly appeared on TMZ.

Dolan ended the interview by making it clear that he was not going to sell the team or quit his job.

Knicks and Rangers owner James Dolan is notoriously thin-skinned when it comes to the slightest bit of criticism.

"The ban is only coming from the fact that we now have learned that he planned it", Dolan said.

Kevin Knox, Mitchell Robinson, Allonzo Trier and Dennis Smith Jr. have played hefty minutes for the Knicks, but that could change if Dolan gets his way in the offseason.

Later on Tuesday, Simmons fired back, saying sarcastically on Twitter, "Clearly - the biggest lure for future free agents is the perennially stable Knicks franchise, all those playoff wins and the leadership of owner James Dolan".

On Tuesday, Dolan said he had originally planned to invite the fan back and let him meet the players while trying to show him that his team was moving in the right direction.

Dolan admitted he wouldn't kick out everyone if more fans chanted the same thing at him.

"Then, as soon as they were done with it, it was immediately sold to TMZ", Dolan said. "They were stalking me", Dolan said. You're reading too much of the Daily News.' That was what we were thinking of doing. "You are not allowed to stalk the owner and then confront him like that". He said it becomes the taunting problem when people become "confrontational".

He's impeded the New York Daily News' access at times because he doesn't like their coverage.

"Not for nothing, I shouldn't have taken the bait", he said.
