Chris Smith Rumors

All NBA Players

Smith laughs as he recalls the games, but gets serious when he talks about playing with James. “Being on his team, you’re just like, ‘Wow, he can do everything.’ And even there, he’s so competitive. He wants to win every game.” What about the other stars? “Carmelo’s mid-post, hesitation jump shot fading away toward the baseline is unstoppable,” he adds. “And KD just needs two steps to get to the rim from half court.”
We spoke with Oak’s longtime friend and spokesperson, Akhtar Farzaie, who tells us Charles feels Dolan is unfairly making him out to be violent alcoholic in the media. “Extremely outrageous and unprofessional of James Dolan to create a narrative of Charles Oakley in an attempt to make Charles seem like a monster.” “Very insulting and disrespectful to those that know him closely as a friend as well as his former teammates, more importantly to the loyal Knicks fans and the city of New York.”
