Oakley is always comfortable voicing his opinions, especially on the Knicks, but was speaking Tuesday because of his expanding portfolio. In addition to his memoir being released early next year (‘The Last Enforcer’), Oakley is hosting a streaming show premiering Oct. 7. The show, entitled “Chopping it Up with Charles Oakley,” is based on the Knicks legend’s second passion — cooking. The premise is Oakley prepares a meal requested by a celebrity guest — (he teased former NBAers Dominique Wilkens, Stephen Jackson, Jim Jackson and Steve Smith, along with actresses LisaRaye McCoy and Jazmin Lewis) — and they spark up a conversation. The show, produced by the For Us By Us Network, will stream on FOX Soul.
