Charles Oakley accepts deal to dismiss charges from incident at MSG

Killer 3's Coach Charles Oakley at The BIG3 professional 3-on-3

Even if Dolan doesn't care too much about fan ire, he has to admit it's been a rough year for the way the Knicks have treated their stars: While nothing compares to what they did to Oakley, he sat by as his (now former) team president alienated Kristaps Porzingis over a skipped exit interview where the only appropriate feedback he really could have given him in the first place was "please don't leave us" and made life tough for Carmelo Anthony because he chose to stick to the no trade clause that Phil Jackson had him sign in the first place.

He was later charged with two misdemeanors of assault, two misdemeanors of harassment and one misdemeanor of trespassing.

Even if Oakley isn't banned from Madison Square Garden by the Knicks, this deal will keep him out.

Photo Charges were dropped against Charles Oakley over an altercation at Madison Square Garden in February.

The Madison Square Garden Company (NYSE:MSG) last posted its quarterly earnings results on Thursday, May 4th.

TMZ Sports reported in June that Oakley rejected the same plea deal he wound up accepting on Friday, known as an adjournment contemplation dismissal.

Now, Oakley has agreed to a plea deal.


It's so [disrespectful],' he told reporters outside a courthouse in April, per The New York Post.

It is unclear whether Oakley has concrete plans to pursue a civil suit against Dolan.

What followed was a scrum and eventually, video shows, Oakley was seen shoving a guard as security surrounded him and ordered him out. Oakley was physically removed from his seats by the arena's security staff.

Asked why he made a decision to accept Friday's deal after rejecting the one in June, Oakley said he wanted to focus on his charity efforts and not waste taxpayers' money. Dolan was criticized by many current and former players for making those claims. Oakley has denied that he has a drinking problem. He has said that he felt targeted by security.

Spiro also alluded to the possibility that the hostility between Oakley and Dolan wasn't over.

Oakley, who played for the Knicks from 1988 to 1998 and helped them reach the NBA Finals, had a poor relationship with the team and Dolan before February thanks in part to his criticisms of the team and owner.
