With the on and off-court dysfunction hounding the New York Knicks, we’re surprised that the team hasn’t been put up for sale.
But if ever owner James Dolan finally gives up on one of the NBA‘s priciest franchises (reportedly worth $3.3 billion), at least he already has one potential buyer in Mallory Edens.
The daughter of Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Wes Edens has expressed interest in the embattled organization.
In a recent interview with TMZ, Mallory was quoted as saying, “I wanna buy the Knicks one day,” and went on to underscore the need for prominent figures of the opposite sex in the front office. “I think women are hugely underrepresented in sports. There are no female GMs [general managers], like one team president who is a woman in the NBA.
“There are no female head coaches, you know hopefully [San Antonio Spurs assistant coach] Becky Hammon gets a head coaching job somewhere, but there’s never been a female commissioner in any of the four major American sports leagues.”
If this fine lady looks familiar, that’s because she made headlines a few years ago, turning heads as the Bucks representative during the 2014 NBA Draft Lottery. Mallory, who saw her Twitter following explode that day, was only 18 years old back then when the world fell head over heels for her.
This isn’t the first time she’s expressed interest in her father’s affairs. When ex-Knicks president Phil Jackson included the name of Kristaps Porzingis in trade talks last June, Mallory had to make her pitch.
At least the New York faithful will have something to look forward to. We’re just wondering which team Mallory’s older sister, Madison, will be rooting for if this indeed happens.
