James Dolan Invites Charles Oakley To MSG As Guest After Meeting With Adam Silver, Michael Jordan
Five days after former New York Knicks player Charles Oakley was forcibly carried out of MSG and arrested after an altercation with security, and ultimately banned from MSG by owner James Dolan, there has been a resolution.
On Monday, Commissioner Adam Silver met with both Oakley & Dolan, while Michael Jordan participated by phone in an effort to help end the feud between the two.
“Both Mr. Oakley and Mr. Dolan were apologetic about the incident and subsequent comments, and their negative impact on the Knicks organization and the NBA,” Silver said in a statement issued Monday. “Mr. Dolan expressed his hope that Mr. Oakley would return to MSG as his guest in the near future.”
