Oakley, 56, called Ewing “high maintenance” and said everything revolved around the Hall of Fame player who now coaches at Georgetown. “You got to be special to play with Patrick,” Oakley said. “You had to do so much out of your ordinary just to be on the team, and that hurt us sometimes. As a team, we’re supposed to be close and together. It wasn’t that. We had to make sure he was happy. He didn’t care if we [were] happy or not. That’s a sad situation, and I see why the Knicks won’t give him a job. He treated them bad – inside out. Chris [Childs] will tell you. He was tough to play with, but he wasn’t no problem to me because I understand. ‘Mase’ [Anthony Mason] had a problem with it because Mase always hollered and cussed at him.”
We spoke with Childs — who played with the Knicks from 1996-2001 — and he’s laying the blame for all of the drama squarely at Dolan’s feet. “Spike Lee has been coming to these game forever,” Childs says. “If he wants to land a helicopter through the roof, let him!” Childs added, “He hasn’t done anything, but support that franchise when they’re at their lowest. So, how do you embarrass that man like that with your flashlight cops? Tell him he can’t use that entrance? And, that only comes from the top.”
Storyline: Spike Lee Incident
Chris Childs played his first two seasons with the Nets before signing with the Knicks for the glory years from 1996-2001. The former point guard could never have imagined what has taken place in New York’s basketball landscape — the Nets beating out the Knicks for superstar free agents Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. “It should be a wake-up call for the Knicks,” Childs told The Post in a phone interview from his home in Jacksonville, Fla. “It should be a wake-up when you didn’t get the free agents you expect to get, especially when [Kristaps] Porzingis left and you think you’re getting a guy or two to come in to fill that and it doesn’t happen.”
