Charles Oakley Arrested at Knicks Game After Altercation With Owner, Security Guards

The shame of it is that the Garden really can provide an exceptional atmosphere for hoops (just ask the superstars on other teams who have relished that stage over the years), and the Knicks are blessed with a fervent, savvy fan base. Reportedly, Knicks team president Phil Jackson came to speak to Oakley in an attempt to calm him, but the former player grew angrier by the minute. "They have to tell him - I was told by people who work there - when I come to the Garden, they have to go tell him".

"I kind of, not was warned, but it was expected that it was going to be something all the time", Hornacek said. I bought the ticket.

"He's a great guy, a great teammates and a great friend, but he's not a guy you want to cross or you want to him feel you've slighted him". "And I said I'm not leaving".

What seems like rock-bottom, Wednesday night, Oakley is dragged out by Madison Square Garden security after being told he had to leave the arena during the Knicks-Clippers game.

U.S. economy adds 227000 jobs in January - the best figures since June
The majority of gains occurred in retail trade, construction, and financial activities. The government said 157,000 new jobs were created in December instead of 156,000.

In a statement on Twitter, MSG officials laid the blame squarely on Oakley's shoulders.

Charles Oakley's removal from the New York Knicks game, coupled with the Knicks' statement has raised a flag around the National Basketball Association. Fans chanted "Oakley! Oakley!" as he was led to the tunnel, handcuffed and eventually taken by the New York Police Department. Paul was appalled with the way the Knicks handled things with Oakley at the Garden, specifically the team's statement about the incident and the line "we hope he gets some help soon".

Oakley was charged with three counts of assault, and criminal trespassing. He was being processed for a desk appearance and will be issued a summons to report back to court. I don't know exactly how to explain Charles Oakley to a non-sports fan but: try to imagine the concept of toughness, mated with the feeling of intimidation, raised with an utter refusal to take s**t.

"Honest to God, you could see it", Rivers recalled. I swear I was going to run down there and then I thought, 'What the hell am I going to do?' But I didn't like that. "That was tough, that was tough to watch". Upon the incident taking place on Wednesday evening, the Knicks were playing Paul's Clippers despite the veteran signal caller remaining on the sideline due to injury. "They said, 'You have to leave because someone ordered you to leave.' I'm like, 'I've been here four and a half minutes, I'm a Knicks fan, played here for 10 years, love the Knicks, love NY, I wish them all the luck and success on the basketball court, and I don't know why I'm not welcome in the Garden'".
