What is it with Charles Oakley and NBA team owners?

The much-beleaguered former NBA star attended his first basketball game since being tossed out of Madison Square Garden and arrested two weeks ago. It was a Knicks game, too. It was just in his hometown of Cleveland, not at MSG in New York.
A demonstration in Pettiness 101? Perhaps. But by all accounts, it seems as though Oakley is still at odds with New York’s front office — specifically owner James Dolan — after his altercation with MSG security in early February.
Oakley’s presence couldn’t help the Knicks from getting trounced in Cleveland, as they fell to the defending NBA champs 119-104.
Bridges saved a pair of his best performances for last this season, as the impressive freshman led Michigan State to a comeback blowout win over Miami, then followed it up by dropping 22 points in a showcase matchup against Josh Jackson in a loss to Kansas. Not only did he display the tremendous athleticism that has brought him into becoming a likely lottery pick, but he’s also added the potential to shoot it as well as pass it from the forward positions.
He’s still undersized to play the combo forward role, but Bridges has a lot of fans around the NBA who think of him as a potential top-10 pick that will not fall out of the lottery if he declares for the draft. We’ll see if that ends up being the case. His father mentioned three weeks ago that he thinks Bridges will return to school. But it’s awfully difficult to do that when millions of dollars and a likely lottery pick are staring you in the face.
