19. Marv Albert
This was just stupid. How do you fire the man who is not only the voice of your franchise, but the voice of the entire fucking league for a generation of fans? How do you do it? If you're really prone to failure (like the James Dolan Knicks), that's how. Upset that Albert would occasionally veer off script and describe the mid-'00s Knicks as they were (namely, that they sucked), Dolan fired the guy who had called Knicks games for 37 years, and who'd been the voice of the NBA Finals throughout the early '90s. Keep in mind that the Knicks had re-hired Albert after he'd pleaded guilty to sexual assault. So let's see: Biting=OK; saying that perhaps this whole Anfernee Hardaway, Shandon Anderson, Keith Van Horn thing ain't working out=not OK?
