Removing Oakley

Former NBA player and bad ass, Charles Oakley, was involved in an altercation with Madison Square Garden security when they told him he had to leave. Oakley was a few rows above New York Knicks owner James Dolan when the incident occurred. The two have been embroiled in a feud mainly because Oakley has been critical of Dolan and his handling of the Knicks. If you're a basketball fan, you know that Dolan has thin skin. You also know that Oakley isn't one to back down from anything or anyone. This is the video of what happened on Wednesday night:

Word has it that Oakley was removed because Dolan simply doesn't like Oakley. Dolan says that Oakley was acting in an "inappropriate and abusive manner." Whatever side you fall on and, trust me, nobody on social media is showing much love for Dolan - the point is, if Madison Square Garden security is asked by the owner to remove a certain person from the venue, they are simply doing their job. The only person Oakley should have a problem with is James Dolan. In that sense, Oakley was being disruptive. I can't side with Oakley because, whether he was guilty or simply minding his own business, in this case, he chose to shoot the messenger.
