Michael Jordan and NBA Commissioner Adam Silver are helping fix the relationship between Charles Oakley and Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan.
But that's not enough for Oakley, who was ejected from the venue and arrested last Wednesday after a scuffle in his seat, near team president James Dolan.
Dolan and Oakley met face-to-face with National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver at the league office Monday, with Michael Jordan joining the conversation via conference call to try to resolve their differences.
Charles Oakley's ban from Madison Square Garden lasted less than a week.
Wise claimed that a source close to Oakley texted him and said that Oakley will once again be allowed inside Madison Square Garden, where he played 10 seasons for the Knicks.
Friday Night's Sky to Light Up
Unlike the dramatic total eclipse of the moon, you can only see a subtle dark shadow on the moon during the penumbral version. Since it has always been hard to spot a penumbral eclipse , people can still detect Earth's shadows when the moon passes by.
NEW YORK-A person briefed on the discussions tells The Associated Press that Madison Square Garden has lifted its ban of Charles Oakley. I want them to apologize to the fans.
The Knicks and Dolan have received criticism for the decision to ban Oakley and the public suggestion that he has a drinking problem. "You put a label on someone and it sticks", Oakley said. In his grandiosity and insecurity, he then invites, and I would assume pays for, such "outstanding ex-Knick citizens" as Latrell Sprewell and Vin Baker to sit with him at a game.
It was not immediately clear when Oakley would next be seen at a Knicks game.
Oakley, however, is unlikely to be spotted sitting courtside with Dolan anytime soon.
