What Had Happened Was: 2/15/17

Oh, you don’t know? We got you.

GAME. BLOUSES.

Former New York Knicks forward Charles Oakley is no longer prohibited from entering Madison Square Garden. A short ban was imposed last week after Knicks owner James Dolan accused Oakley of using inappropriate language and stating that the former front court man had a drinking problem, which resulted in the altercation and Oakley being forcibly removed from MSG. Oakley, one of the most popular players in the franchise, was charged with three counts of misdemeanor assault and one count of misdemeanor trespassing.

Not only did Oakley dispute those claims, so did former teammates, current players and even members of the media, who have played or worked closely with the 53 year old. On Monday, the pair met with NBA commissioner Adam Silver in New York and with NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan by telephone to resolve the dispute. Both Dolan and Oakley apologized for the fallout from last Wednesday’s altercation.
