New York Knicks: Charles Oakley Gives His Two Cents On The Anthony Mason-Fat Joe Topic (Video)

The saga that is the Notorious B.I.G., Anthony Mason and Fat Joe continues as New York Knicks legend Charles Oakley gives his two cents.

By now, unless you moved to Siberia, and you simply hate the NBA, you know what went down earlier in the week regarding Fat Joe and Anthony Mason’s good name.

On ESPN’s Highly Questionable, Fat Joe revealed to the world that Biggie was rapping about Mason in his much loved “I’ve got a story to tell.”

Since that claim, Joe has backpedalled a little about the claim. He even went as far as to say he “it wasn’t his place to say it.”

So, naturally, the entire issue is in the air.

Interestingly enough, Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs shouted out “I’ve got a story to tell” as Biggie’s favorite song this morning on The Breakfast Club. He also casually confirmed that it was Mase who Biggie referenced.

Not surprisingly, when the other scary dude from the 1990s Knicks was asked about the situation, Charles Oakley, he referenced “disrespect” (video above).

Honestly, it doesn’t even matter.

The only thing that’s cool about the entire situation is that we’re actually discussing the Knicks and Hip Hop during a time when they were both setting the gold standard, the 90s.

If anything, this is a sad reminder for who each entity has fallen so far.

Was it Mase? I don’t know, but it’s tough to imagine that it was after looking at what Mase looked like.

Now who in their right mind would ever mess with a guy like that?
