Dolan lifts MSG ban on Oakley

Posted Февраля 15, 2017

A person briefed on the discussions tells The Associated Press that Madison Square Garden has lifted its ban of Charles Oakley. Following what appeared to be a shoving match with a few security personnel, Oakley was then arrested and charged with assault.

He's asked Dolan to call for a press conference and apologize for what transpired when Oakley was removed from Madison Square Garden and arrested on February 8.

The sight of Charles Oakley fighting with Madison Square Garden security and being dragged off the floor during a New York Knicks' game last week was one of the most-disturbing scenes in recent National Basketball Association history - especially when you consider he gave his heart and soul to the franchise as its hard-nosed enforcer from 1988-1998. According to Silver, Oakley and Dolan "were apologetic about the incident and subsequent comments", but it seems that some issues remain between the two men.

He later reiterated that request in a separate interview with ESPN, saying he would not return to the Garden as a guest of Dolan's if asked even though the owner apologized to him in private.

Beyond disheartening? Try being a Knicks fan.

James Dolan has added yet another sad chapter to his ownership legacy of the once-proud New York Knicks.

"There was an offer extended evidently ... and Oakley didn't accept it because he's still hurt", Francesa said.

Silver called a meeting with Dolan, Oakley and Jordan, who is a close friend of Oakley's, to "find a path forward".

Oakley played with the Knicks for 10 years, cherishing the time he shared with the franchise in the 90s.
