Dolan says the forbidden fan of Knicks set up an "ambush."

Knicks owner James Dolan said the fan who confronted him said he should "sell" the team after banning the loss of New York to the Sacramento Kings on Saturday from Madison Square Garden.

In the "Michael Kay Show" on 1050 ESPN New York on Tuesday, Dolan called the confrontation an "ambush" and said the fan sold the video to TMZ.

"The ban comes only from the fact that we have now learned that he has planned it," said Dolan. "They chased me, it's not possible in Madison Square Garden, they can not track the owner and confront him like that.

"These guys were planning to produce the video and sell it to TMZ."

The exchange began when the fan called Dolan to "sell the team" as he entered the tunnel. The billionaire stopped and replied, "You think I should sell the team?" and waved the fan over.

"You do not want to play games anymore?" Dolan asked, adding that the comment from the fan was rude.

When the fan protested when he said he was just voicing his opinion, Dolan replied, "No, that's not an opinion, and you know what, enjoy watching them on TV."

Dolan then pointed to the fan and nodded toward safety, which stopped the fan from being held. TMZ reported security forces and police interrogated the man before asking him to leave the arena.

Dolan said on Tuesday that he had originally planned to re-invite the fan and put him in touch with the team to show him that the franchise is moving in a positive direction. That changed, however, when "it became clear that the whole thing was planned".

Dolan also raised rumors that he wanted to sell the team.

"For the record, I do not sell the team and I do not stop," said Dolan.
