Stephen A. Smith Rumors
The New York Knicks lifted their ban on former player Charles Oakley on Tuesday, sources told ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith and The Undefeated’s Mike Wise. A source within the Madison Square Garden organization told Smith of the move, while Wise was informed by a source close to Oakley.
Bryant made an appearance on Stephen A. Smith’s show on ESPN radio on Friday to talk about a number of different topics one of which being whether he’d offer his advice if asked by the Lakers brass: “I’m always around behind the scenes for Jeanie, Jimmy, and the entire Buss family if they need assistance or if it be to reach out or call for advice and things of that nature,” Bryant told Smith. “Now, being front and center about it, it’s not something that is really my cup of tea. I’d rather be behind the scenes and focus on the content I’m creating because that’s where my passion truly lies, but the Buss family knows that I’m always a phone call away.”
