Charles Oakley wasn’t surprised Patrick Ewing had trouble getting around the Garden, and he doesn’t understand why his former teammate would want an explanation from James Dolan. “This man (Dolan) offered you a D-League job. There’s no respect behind your name,” Oakley told the Daily News. “Why are you mad now because they asked you for your (credential)? When they offered you a D-League job that’s when the respect went out the window.”
“No players want to come to the Knicks. Think about the last four guys who came to New York — they’re all in Brooklyn. They landed in New York and went to Brooklyn. KD, Kyrie, James Harden, Blake Griffin,” Oakley said. “There’s always something upstairs. There’s always something. You’re over .500 at the All-Star break for the first time in so many years, now look what happens before you play the first game after the All-Star break — one of the Top 2 greatest Knicks of all-time gets stopped for a pass.
From Nat “Sweetwater” Clifton to Sam Jones to Willis Reed to Earl “The Pearl” Monroe to Bob Love to Anthony Mason to Charles Oakley to Ben Wallace, it used to be commonplace to see players from historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in the NBA All-Star Game. But today, it’s rare to see an HBCU player in the NBA at all. There is only one HBCU player left among the 30 teams: Portland Trail Blazers forward Robert Covington, who starred at Tennessee State. “That’s a little disturbing,” Wallace told The Undefeated. “Most of us HBCUs, we’re scorers or specialists. The league has shifted to shooters and that has weeded out a lot of the HBCU players.”

Charles Oakley wants James Dolan named in assault suit

Former New York Knick Charles Oakley alleges in court papers that James Dolan orchestrated his violent eviction from Madison Square Garden in 2017, and he wants to add the team owner as a defendant to his assault and battery lawsuit against the arena and entertainment company. That is a new twist to the more than 3-year-old case. Previously, Oakley contended Dolan had merely ordered his eviction. Now he is alleging that the owner ordered what the ex-player is calling an assault.

A three-judge panel concluded a jury could decide whether it was improper for security guards to throw Oakley to the ground after Oakley, according to his court papers, slapped their hands away in self defense as he sought to watch the game. The appeals court, though, rejected Oakley’s claims of defamation and false imprisonment.

In a statement released by his lawyers, Oakley said: “I am appreciative of the appeals court as I now have a chance to show the world what I said from day one was true. The truth is going to come out at trial and Dolan will be held responsible for what he did.” His lawyer, Douglas Wigdor, said: “This is a great day for Knicks fans and fans of Mr. Oakley, and we look forward to the truth of what happened finally coming out.”
