NEW YORK — The New York Knicks stink as a professional sports franchise. But there was still plenty of drama in front of a star-studded audience Wednesday night inside Madison Square Garden where 53-year-old Charles Oakley was handcuffed and hauled out of the arena by security guards after getting into a fight in the stands. The entire ordeal was nationally televised. Oakley, who was taken to jail, is facing three counts of assault. He vehemently denied that he yelled at Garden chairman and Knicks owner James Dolan prior to being thrown out of an arena he used to perform in.

“I was there for four minutes,” said Oakley, once a power forward for the Knicks. “I didn’t say anything to him. I swear on my mother. They came over and wanted to know why I was sitting there. I bought the ticket. I said why do you guys keep staring at me. Then they asked me to leave. And I said I’m not leaving.”

Even if he had reason, Oakley is too damn old to behave like this.

  1. Black people: You can dress em up, but u can’t take em anywhere 🙁

  2. Thanks NYPD for arresting this old fool. I hope he is tried and receives the harshest sentence. THERE’S NO FOOL LIKE AN OLD FOOL! And the OLD FOOL here is Charles Oakley no matter how many years he played for the Knicks! He is an embarrassment to the NBA, the Knicks organizations and human being in general by the show he put on!

    I blame knicks fans. LA has how many championships and when they stopped winning what happened. Attendance fell off. Madison Square Garden is sold out even when the knicks are not gonna be in the play offs even for meaningless games. Why they put out a winning product when that’s not needed to make money which is the bottom line. Knicks fans stop bitching, look in the mirror there is the problem
