“Once a Knick, always a Knick?” Not for this legend.
New York Knicks legend, Charles Oakley has now been banned from Madison Square Garden after his altercation with security on Wednesday.
Michael Kay broke the news on his radio show, minutes before owner James Dolan was set to come onto the show.
BREAKING:“Charles Oakley will never be allowed to enter MSG again, even if he purchases a ticket.”-According to @RealMichaelKay— The Michael Kay Show (@TMKSESPN) February 10, 2017
“Charles Oakley will never be allowed to enter MSG again, even if he purchases a ticket,” Kay said.
Oakley and Dolan have had a rocky relationship for years, which all blew up when security attempted to escort him out of the building from a seat he paid for with his own money.
He was arrested and charged with three counts of misdemeanor assault.
Dolan also fired his senior vice president for security Frank Benedetto after the embarassing situation at the Garden.
Oakley was one of the biggest players for the Knicks franchise during their hey day in the years of 1988–1998.
