Oakley compares Knicks owner to Sterling

Dolan banned Knicks legend Oakley from attending National Basketball Association games at Madison Square Garden following an altercation with security before eventually relenting this week. "Don't give me something now because everything is bad".

However, Oakley remains unhappy with Dolan and the Knicks.

Gray took the opportunity, and straight-up asked Oakley if he considered Dolan to be a racist, to which he responded "he's on that level".

"When you look at what's going on now with the Melo situation in their organization and now how you do a legend in Charles Oakley, I don't know a free agent that would want to go there", Green continued. I want them to apologize to the fans.

Oakley may forever have a hard time seeing Dolan in the same light that Sterling does, especially after Dolan implied that Oakley is an alcoholic and that Oakley is "physically and verbally abusive", in an interview on ESPN's "The Michael Kay Show".

"He may have a problem with alcohol, we don't know", Dolan said. "Mr. Dolan expressed his hope that Mr. Oakley would return to MSG as his guest in the near future".

These days, Sterling, 82, said he is "very happy that it's all behind me", referring to the 2014 controversy that played out for most of that year.

"You doing it for me, it's all good", Green said on his Dray Day podcast. However, Oakley told Sports Illustrated Now that the meeting did not go smoothly. I don't have a negative feeling in my whole life for anyone.

"I don't think this conflict benefits anybody". Essentially, Green feels like Dolan was fine with Oakley giving his blood, sweat and tears to the organization as a player, but once the former forward criticized the franchise, Dolan's mentality changed. "What's the point? What's the objective?"
