Meet Dennis Doyle.

Doyle, a former lawyer, called into SiriusXM NBA Radio last weekend to brag about … err … explain why he decided to spend six months following the New York Knicks around the United States.

Doyle told SiriusXM NBA Radio that he was unhappy with his job, and when he learned he was going to be let go, he decided to do what any NBA fan dreams of doing: Attend every New York Knicks 2014-15 game, both on the road and at home.

“I decided that was the time for me to kind of do a little soul searching, and try and get in touch with the things that I really love in life, which for me has always been basketball, and on top of that, writing and traveling,” Doyle explained. “So I had this idea, this sort of eureka moment, where I was like, ‘What if I went to every single game in a single season?’ I don’t think anybody, at least that I’ve heard of, has been crazy enough to do something like that. So that’s where I got the idea, and decided to follow through with it.”

Doyle said that while he’s had the opportunity to do some sightseeing, he does now empathize with NBA players when it comes to the difficulties of traveling to road cities on back-to-back nights – even as a spectator, rather than a player.

And as for his secret to pulling off the 82-for-82? Doyle is single. (Of course.)
