New York Knicks owner James Dolan must have quite an ego. In fact, he thinks so highly of himself that someone recently almost lost their job for not knowing who he was. According to the NY Post, Dolan was walking into Madison Square Garden’s Delta Sky 360 Club during Sunday’s game against the Boston Celtics when security guard Fiordaliza Hernandez stopped him and asked him for his ID. Dolan apparently never wears the badge since he pretty much runs the show, and he was reportedly offended that Hernandez didn’t know who he was. “Do you know who I am?” Dolan reportedly snapped at the employee. Hernandez then admitted that she did not recognize him, at which point Dolan told her he was his boss and paid her salary. He then asked her how long she had been working there, to which she responded “three years.” “Give me your ID!” Dolan reportedly exclaimed. “You’re fired! “I have to get new security in this building! I have idiots working here!” Thankfully, Dolan reconsidered after cooling off and Hernandez was supposedly back at her post on Monday night when the New York Rangers played the Winnipeg Jets. Perhaps somebody was in a bad mood when their ego went on a rampage. Unless he’s taking all of his employees out to a company dinner, I don’t see any reason why they should have to recognize him by face. If anything, he should have been pleased that the woman was doing her job by asking people who were entering the exclusive club to present their ID. Then again, this is James Dolan. Firing an employee for not recognizing him wouldn’t be the strangest thing he has done this season.
