Report: Knicks Lift Charles Oakley’s MSG Ban

The New York Knicks have reportedly lifted the ban on former player Charles Oakley from Madison Square Garden, a few days after he was banned from entering the building following a physical clash with security officials during a game at the arena. Oakley was arrested following the dust-up, which began when Oakley started shouting at Knicks owner James Dolan. The heated altercation was caught on camera. Madison Square Garden’s head of security was fired after the incident. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement on Monday that he and Michael Jordan were trying earnestly to resolve the dispute between Oakley and Dolan.
