The Knicks have at least one more year where they definitely will not flourish. Beloved former player Charles Oakley has agreed to a one-year ban from Madison Square Garden in order to see charges against him dropped.
Oak was facing assault, harassment and trespassing charged.
Reports the New York Daily News:
Former New York Knicks star Charles Oakley took a dismissal deal Friday for sparring with team owner James Dolan’s security at Madison Square Garden at the start of a Feb. 8 game.
Oakley, 54, had previously said he would fight the charges at trial. He still admits no wrongdoing but agreed to stay away from the Garden arena for a year as part of the deal.
Oakley was seen on video shoving a guard as a swarm of security surrounded him and ordered him to leave the arena.
Reportedly, after six months of good behavior, the charged will be dismissed and sealed.
Can James Dolan be charged with a crime for ruining the New York Knicks or nah?
