Following a tough loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday, the Knicks are off to a disappointing 1-2 start to begin the season. But fear not — Knicks owner James Dolan is very concerned and is making changes that will greatly improve the performance he's seeing on the court:

The source said there is a movement to upgrade the routines by the popular Knicks City Dancers to make them less like “regular cheerleaders.”

“We’re in the process of a rebranding of the Knicks City Dancers,” the source said. “We’re looking at making them bigger and better so they’re not just regular cheerleaders.” The Garden source added the plan is to make the routines more “classy,” citing the tap-dance number that was performed Sunday night. 

See? Classy dancing.
