"I asked the commissioner (Adam Silver) to set up a meeting with (Dolan), make a step forward," said Oakley. "I want to know what I did to be hated so bad by an owner. The dad (Charles Dolan), I never heard him say nothing bad about me. I asked players I played with to go talk with (Dolan). He said he don't want to deal with me." Oakley said Knicks fans are the ones hurting these days, because Dolan's product stinks and fans are "paying their money to watch" terrible basketball. "It's all gimme basketball now," said Oakley. "One guy can't make a team better. We had a lot of high IQ guys playing. There's no leaders. When I was here I treated people with respect," said Oakley. "How can I be that bad?" New York Daily News

Q: One thing coming up in the future is Draymond Green’s restricted free agency. That would likely put you into the luxury tax if you keep him. This franchise has never paid the luxury tax. Are you prepared to go into the tax next summer to keep this team together? Joe Lacob: Committed or not committed, I don’t think we have any other choice. Numbers would dictate–anyone can look at them–that we’re very likely in the luxury tax and very likely very substantially, next year. And you know what? We’re OK with that. I tell Bob all the time; he keeps asking me, ‘Are you sure?’ We’re prepared to do whatever it takes to win a championship; I’ve said that before. You want to do it when the timing is right. Maybe the timing’s right, right? We’re pretty good. And so, I think we need to take advantage of that and go for it. Our fans, that’s what they want to hear. And the truth is, it’s what I want to hear. And what I want to think. And what our management and ownership… there isn’t one owner that I know of or one person in management here that doesn’t think this way. Luxury tax? It’s not something you want to do, it’s very penal. But can’t be worried about that right now. That is really not the issue. The issue is being the best team we can be and we’re going to do whatever it takes. San Jose Mercury-News
