Charles Oakley Trashed White People & Police In MSG Meltdown ... Witnesses Say

Charles Oakley exchanges words with a security guard during the Knicks-Clippers game on Wednesday.

He did, however, point to his team president when asked what he would say to angry fans who consider Dolan to be the villain.

Jackson created a firestorm this week with a tweet that appeared to say he agreed with the premise of a column that was critical of Anthony. The second, which came after Oakley spoke to media outlets Thursday, ended with, "Everything he said since the incident is pure fiction". I think Charles Oakley is frustrated just like we all are. "That was just a situation where the person didn't work out and this was probably the last straw", Dolan said in the radio interview. Since then, the owner and player have always been at odds, with Oakley's special brand of candor rankling Dolan's soft feathers and the Knicks effectively wiping the former All-Star from the franchise's lengthy history.

The Knicks shot 56 percent themselves, but never got particularly close in the fourth quarter because Denver couldn't be stopped. Before working for Dolan-who also fronts a bluesy rock band named J.D. and the Straight Shot that when playing live incites catcalls of "Quit your day job!"-Benedetto had been a United States Secret Service agent for 27 years". Dolan said. "No. No".

The question is: will the New York Knicks get through the black cloud before it's too late? He essentially guaranteed Phil Jackson, who is serving as team president and is only slightly more popular than Dolan in NY these days, will not be going anywhere for the duration of his five-year contract, which runs through the 2018-19 season. "I am going to honor my agreement because that is what you do".

"Dolan has bad judgement in people and gets easily manipulated".

The way the issues have played out publicly have hurt the perception of the Knicks' franchise around National Basketball Association players.

"That is totally within Phil's control", Dolan said. He is going to be concerned about that. This public shaming of one of the fans favorite Knicks comes off spiteful and petty. As he has had all along the way, he has my support and resources that he needs to do it. Everybody seemed to agree.

Oakley has since refuted those accusations and said that he was simply sitting in his seat - conveniently a few rows away from Dolan - for about four minutes before security told him he had to leave.

He added: "Maybe I can come make a suggestion, make them get better".
