Fans of the New York Knicks are planning to protest against owner James Dolan on March 19, according to the New York Post.

Knicks supporters are said to be unhappy at the way Dolan has handled the Eastern Conference franchise this season, as the Madison Square Garden outfit look set to miss out on a place in the playoffs.

Supporter group 'KF4L' - otherwise known as Knicks Fans For Life - have identified their home game against the Indiana Pacers as the perfect opportunity to declare their unrest at the American businessman.

The organizers of the group said on their upcoming protest: "Dolan’s failure to allow knowledgeable basketball people the autonomy/power to make basketball related decisions.

"His insistence on overriding the opinions of his basketball people by bidding against himself in negotiations and overpaying in trades."

The protestors also said they were not calling for Dolan to sell the struggling franchise but wanted to have the chance of voicing their opinion on their club.

The Knicks are currently three places off of the playoffs - having won just 21 games so far this season.

New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson has also been heavily criticised during the past couple of months but seems to still have the backing of the fans - for the time being at least.
