Read: Did James Dolan Call The Lockout A Strike?

via Chris Botta comes an interview James Dolan did with Billboard Magazine that centered around his music and his new album.

Dolan was asked about the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and said that there is room in NY for another arena and that besides success on the basketball court, he wishes the arena well.

He was asked about how the Barclays Center could compete with MSG for concert bookings and Dolan said that with the hockey “strike” there could be a lot of holes in the calendar but if the Rangers season does get underway, MSG is booked up for 2013.


Adam Rotter: I have a hard time believing that Dolan, who is in his third lockout (counting the NBA) since 2004, would mistakenly call it a strike. Many casual fans and such believe that the word lockout and strike are basically the same because the end result is that there is no hockey. It’s a music based interview in a music magazine and the word strike is much more prevalent in culture than lockout is and the author who transcribed his interview with Dolan may have felt there was no difference between the two.
