Charles Oakley to attend Cavs-Knicks game in Cleveland

Posted at 1:28 PM, Feb 23, 2017

Charles Oakley plans to attend the Cavs game in Cleveland Thursday night, according to ESPN.

Oakley was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault and trespassing after being ejected from Madison Square Garden earlier this month. He was subsequently banned indefinitely.

Knicks owner James Dolan said Oakley was being abusive when he got to his seat for the game on Feb. 8, and later suggested on ESPN New York that the former player "has a problem with anger. He's both physically and verbally abusive. He may have a problem with alcohol. We don't know."

After Oakley's arrest, LeBron James showed support for the former Knicks player, ending a media conference with the statement: “Charles Oakley for President.”

"Oak will be in his hometown of Cleveland. When in Cleveland, he always tried to attend a Cavs game," Oakley spokesman Akhtar Farzaie told ESPN Thursday.
