Oakley and Dolan have had a tumultuous relationship over the years with Oakley telling reporters at one point that Dolan told him he was not welcome anymore at Knicks games.
Former New York Knicks star Charles Oakley was ejected from MSG on Wednesday night and arrested after acting uncontrollably in the stands during a confrontation with security. He told us had he been in the Garden with Oakley last night, he would have certainly had his back PHYSICALLY. I turned around just in time as he was handing it to him, and then there was a foul.
But the fingerprints he so obviously laid all over the public statement Knicks' PR issued in the wake of Oakley's ejection might be his worst example yet of smug, mean-spirited condescension.
"Right there, attacking my character like that - not makin' it about the moment but somethin' bigger that's wrong with me?" "One guy, try your luck, eight or nine guys, I've got to brace myself and be ready for the challenge". "I don't know how you do that".
Oakley reportedly tried "going after" Knicks owner James Dolan, which is why security asked him to leave.
Bulls guard Dwyane Wade and Clippers guard Chris Paul were among those who have criticized the Knicks for their handling of Oakley at the game. Hell, even in retirement, we're reminded time and time again that he still has that fire burning when he calls out Charles Barkley on the regular.

Lose to Bonnie's and our nutty bus driver leaves without the team! One small problem. It seemed odd, but they were still surprised when they realized she had bolted.
As the news of Oakley's arrest spread, I received a dozen or so calls from former Knicks employees who all wanted to help.
"He don't want to meet with me", Oakley said.
This is the best Knicks story in years. I love NY, gave my whole heart. Dolan is the one who hired Phil Jackson, after all - the man who is rumored to be trying to force the star out of NY. This is my heart. Oakley grew more agitated, poking a security guard in the head then shoving another before he was dragged out. "I don't really know kind of what happened, all the details". He ays he bought his own ticket to the game and was confronted by security for no reason, except that Dolan didn't want him there.
Oakley was charged with three counts of misdemeanor assault, and one of criminal trespass.
Oakley was given a desk appearance ticket and will be required to appear in front of a judge at a later date. If you've been hearing what I'm trying to tell you, this picture should be totally expected.
