Charles Oakley to attend New York Knicks game in Cleveland

Charles Oakley will reportedly be heading to Cleveland in order to attend the New York Knicks’ first game since the All-Star break. 

Frank Isola of the New York Daily News first reported that Charles Oakley would be in attendance for the New York Knicks‘ first game since the All-Star Break against the Cavs.

On Thursday, Oakley took to Twitter to confirm this news.

This comes weeks after the Knicks, led by owner James Dolan, embarrassed Oakley and themselves by throwing the Knicks’ legend out of a nationally televised game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Oakley, who was originally drafted by Cleveland but traded on draft night, has received an enormous amount of support from players across the NBA. One of these players was “The King” himself, Lebron James. Although the two are close, Isola reported that it is unclear whether Oakley will be a guest of James or not.

While Oakley was never a Cavalier, he will certainly be treated better in Quicken Loans Arena than in Madison Square Garden, where he gave his blood, sweat and tears for the team who humiliated him in front of his own fans.

Charles is a sophomore at Pennsylvania State University from Long Island, New York, majoring in broadcast journalism. As a member of Penn State's CommRadio, the official radio station of the College of Communications, Charles has written various articles covering Penn State football and basketball. In addition to writing, Charles also co-hosts Empire State College, the only New York sports talkshow on campus.
