Less than one week after Charles Oakley was unceremoniously ejected from Madison Square Garden and later banned from the arena by Knicks owner James Dolan, it looks like we're finally close to a resolution.

All it took was some intervention by NBA commissioner Adam Silver and the help of Michael Jordan. Silver met with both Oakley and Dolan at the league office yesterday to discuss the situation, while MJ phoned in to help smooth things over.

The NBA released a statement from Silver shortly after their meeting in which the commissioner said it was, "beyond disheartening to see situations involving members of the NBA family like the one that occurred at Madison Square Garden this past week."

Silver also added that both parties were apologetic and that James Dolan expressed hope that Oak would return to MSG in the near future.

Does that mean Knicks fans are getting a "Charles Oakley Appreciation Night" sometime soon?
