Current and former NBA stars show support for Oakley.
Charles Oakley's ejection from Madison Square Garden last night and his subsequent arrest has many in the sports world calling out the New York Knicks organization for their treatment of the legendary fan favorite.
LeBron James posted a picture of Oakley shortly after his arrest last night with a caption that read "#Legend," and today more NBA stars are coming out in support, including Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul.
D-Wade posted a caption on his IG post of Oak which read;
"10years!!! 10 years Oak gave everything he had for this organization and the image everyone will be left with won't be this picture. It will be the imagine of him being taken down to the ground last night in the same arena he gave his all 2 as a player by the guards! This Could happen to any of us!!!#StayWoke We are not above this treatment!"
Both players took shots at the Knicks through social media, as did Reggie Miller, Jamal Crawford, Spike Lee and Michael Rapaport - who compared arresting Oakley in MSG to arresting the Pope at the Vatican.
Check out some of the reactions below, including the second statement that was just released by the Knicks, claiming everything Oakley has said in the aftermath of last night's events is a lie.
