Knicks owner James Dolan is the frontman for his band JD and the Straight Shot.

For James Dolan, the hits just keep on coming.

As all Knicks fans know, Dolan is not just the owner of their team, he is also the front man for his band JD and the Straight Shot.

Up until he guaranteed a win during one of his shows a few weeks ago, Dolan has kept the music and basketball separate.

But that changed Wednesday when someone hacked the band’s Wikipedia page and added a few Knick-themed titles to the Straight Shot’s discography.

The clever Knicks fan (we presume) added such timely favorites as “Can’t Make the Knicks Win,” “Reunion With Isiah in Hell,” and “Fix the Knicks” to the track list for a 2011 album titled “Can’t Make Tears.”

Other favorites include “Slow Motion Turnaround Jumper (feat. J.R. Smith)” and “There’s Something Wrong with Having Draft Picks.”

That wasn’t the only bit of bad news for Dolan on the Internet. On Tuesday, a petition to remove James Dolan as Executive Chairman of the Madison Square Garden Company was sent to the Obama Administration on www.petitions.whitehouse.gov.

The petition, dated Nov. 26, states “James Dolan has successfully run the Madison Square Garden Company in to the ground. He has hurt his product by consistently diminishing his production, The New York Knicks and The New York Rangers. It is best for consumers that he is removed and replaced by an individual that know how to run a business properly and will not give consumers a poor product.”

As of midnight Thursday, 170 people had signed the petition.
