Song Parody: A Lin & Dolan Duet


Here is a song parody I wrote about the Knicks owner James Dolan's decision not the match on the Lin contract. As you can see, it is intended as a duet between Dolan and Lin. I'm hoping someone with talent can turn this into a youtube video. (You hear me KevJumba?)

According to reports, Dolan was treating Lin like he should have been grateful to the Knicks, but Lin did what he was asked, to go out and find his market value. This is my take on what happen based on the early reporting, but it's admittedly a simplistic take (hey, it's a parody). For a pretty balanced and more nuanced view, Go check out ESPN's 6 part series (espn.com, its on their front page right now) which gives the most complete picture I have read about the Lin signing.

This situation reminded me of the 80's hit, Don't You Want Me (The Human Leagues). Enjoy.

Why Don't You Match me Dolan?

Sung to the tune of: Don't You Want Me (The Human League)

DOLAN:

You were jobless on waivers on the NBA wire

When I met you

I picked you up, I made you a Knicks, and gave you a chance,

Turned you into someone new

Now seven months later on you've got the world at your feet

Success has been so easy for you

But don't forget it's me who put you where you are now

And I can put you back there too

Chorus (DOLAN):

Don't, don't you want me?

You know I can't believe it when I hear that you signed with Rockets

Don't, don't you want me?

You know I don't believe you when you say you signed with Rockets

It's much too late to find

The Rockets changed their mind

They changed it to poison now we will both be sorry

Don't you want me Jeremy? Don't you want me oh

Don't you want me Jeremy? Don't you want me oh

JEREMY:

I was jobless on waivers on the NBA wire

That much is true

But even then I knew I'd play a much better game

Either with or without you

JEREMY:

The seven months we have had have been such good times

I love Knicks fans.

But now I think it's time I got paid my fair value

The market says that's my fair value.

Why Don't you match me Dolan? Don't you match me oh

Why Don't you match me Dolan? Don't you match me oh

(Chorus):

JEREMY:

Why Don't you match me Dolan? Don't you match me oh

Why Don't you match me Dolan? Don't you match me oh

DOLAN:

Don't you want me Jeremy? Don't you want me oh

Don't you want me Jeremy? Don't you want me oh

JEREMY:

Why Don't you match me Dolan? Don't you match me oh

Why Don't you match me Dolan? Don't you match me oh

BOTH:

Why Don't you match me Dolan? Don't you match me oh / Don't you want me Jeremy? Don't you want me oh

Why Don't you match me Dolan? Don't you match me oh / Don't you want me Jeremy? Don't you want me oh
