Knicks boss may want to hear what's said to Melo

Dolan hasn't taken questions from reporters covering the Knicks in nearly six years, but remains keenly interested and insistent in knowing what is going on with the team. Public relations officials used to record interviews with players and coaches, and they continue to listen and take notes of what is said.

General manager Glen Grunwald rarely conducts interviews and Dolan is such a stickler for his media rules that when he fired Larry Brown in 2006, he withheld payment for cause because Brown had conducted a roadside interview with reporters without a public relations official present, in violation of MSG rules.

An NBA spokesman said there was nothing wrong with the extra equipment — there already were additional microphones around the court Friday because it was a national TV game — and added that the league doesn't comment on anything teams send for review.
