Charles Oakley said on Thursday he has tried to mend his fractured relationship with James Dolan multiple times but has been rebuffed by the New York Knicks owner on each occasion. “He don’t want to meet with me,” Oakley told The Undefeated’s Mike Wise. “Man won’t even shake my hand.”
Oakley has been critical of the Knicks over the years, specifically taking on Dolan’s stewardship as owner at times. But Oakley told The Undefeated he was really hurt when Dolan refused to shake his hand as Oakley approached him at the 2014 All-Star Game in New Orleans. Since then, he said, it has been an even more acrimonious relationship.
