Former Net Jared Dudley has never been afraid to speak his mind. Whether you love him or hate him, you have to admire that about him.
But Knicks fans definitely won't like what he just said about them.
Obviously this offseason, the Knicks failed to sign the duo of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Instead, the two All-Stars found their way to Brooklyn instead of Manhattan to play for the Nets.
So, while talking about Nets now ex-head coach Kenny Atkinson being forced out of his job, Dudley decided to take a shot at the Knicks as well.
"And let's be honest, if the Knicks are run right, the Knicks get them easily. It's not even close," told The Athletic's Michael Lee. "If the Knicks are run halfway decent, they get KD and Kyrie."
Dudley, who signed a veteran minimum deal to play for the Lakers this season, is taking a clear jab at James Dolan and Co., and he wouldn't be the first. When Durant and Irving both decided to go to Brooklyn, many pointed at Dolan's ownership as a reason why they wanted to go to the Knicks' crosstown rival.
New York certainly had the cap space with the two max slots open, but no high-profile player wanted to fill them. Paul George and Kawhi Leonard landed with the Clippers among others choosing different locations other than New York.
Will that change moving forward? With new president Leon Rose in charge to go along with brand consultant Steve Stoute, it has the possibility to do so. But there is still Dolan's ownership that has many believing it won't.
