Charles Oakley still not over his issues with James Dolan
Charles Oakley is still bothered by his past issues with New York Knicks owner James Dolan.
The former Knicks forward, who remains a fan favorite in New York, was asked at a charity event Tuesday whether he has moved past his issues with Dolan.
“Some things don’t go away,” the former Knicks forward said, via Newsday’s Neil Best. “It’s just wrong.”
Oakley has been charged with three counts of assault for his treatment of security guards at MSG on Feb. 8. Oakley was kicked out of the game for acting belligerently and believes Dolan targeted him. The physical altercation between Oakley and the security guards resulted in major headlines and created a further divide between Dolan and Knicks fans, with many taking Oakley’s side.
Oakley wanted Dolan to be reprimanded for the incident. He wanted the owner “to apologize to the press, to my family and the fans, and the league. He needs to apologize to the other owners, too. He should have been suspended or fined . . . I told the commissioner that’s what I wanted and I’m going to stick to that.”
Yup, Oakley still is mad about things.
