Report: Charles Oakley banned for life from Madison Square Garden
Knicks legend Charles Oakley has been banned from Madison Square Garden for life, ESPN Radio host Michael Kay reports.
“Charles Oakley will never be allowed to enter MSG again, even if he purchases a ticket,” Kay said on his show Friday afternoon.
Kay will interview Knicks owner James Dolan later in Friday’s show.
Oakley was arrested at Wednesday night’s Knicks game after an altercation with arena security. The incident reportedly began when Oakley heckled Dolan, with whom he has a longstanding feud.
Oakley, 53, played 10 seasons with the Knicks from 1988 to 1998. He has been upset with Knicks management that he has not been invited to participate in any of the team’s 70th anniversary celebrations.
