Al Sharpton plans to picket if Oakley's ban isn't lifted.
New York Knicks owner James Dolan banned Charles Oakley from Madison Square Garden last week, following his altercation with multiple security guards which ultimately resulted in his arrest.
The Knicks fans as well as some current and former NBA stars came to Oakley's defense but the organization has stood by their decision to keep Oakley away from MSG, even if he purchases a ticket.
According to the New York Daily News' Stefan Bondy, civil rights activist Al Sharpton is prepared to start a picket outside of Madison Square Garden if Dolan doesn't 'immediately' lift that ban on Oakley.
In other words, Sharpton better start planning his protest because in a recent interview James Dolan showed no signs of wavering.
