Lupica on Dolan vs.Prokhorov (or anybody), eminent domain for MSG

New York Daily News Sports columnist Mike Lupica, in his column today, takes a few swipes at James Dolan, CEO of Cablevision, chairman of Madison Square Garden, and thus principal owner of the Knicks, whose woes have been caused largely by some unwise management decisions:
Incidentally, whom do you think Knick fans would like to have own their team right now, Dolan or the Mikhail Prokhorov?

You don't actually have to answer, it was a kind of a rhetorical question.

You know why they'd pick Prokhorov?

Because they'd pick anybody over the guy they have.

...I don't mean to harp on this, but why CAN'T we use eminent domain to seize the Garden from Dolan the way the city and state seized all that real estate in Brooklyn for Caring Bruce Ratner?
