Knicks legend Charles Oakley was critical of James Dolan after the franchise owner threatened to ban a fan from Madison Square Garden.
"He just tries to bully everybody and it just don't make sense," Oakley, who was temporarily banned from Madison Square Garden in 2017 when he had an altercation near Dolan, told the Associated Press on Monday.
Dolan threatened to ban a fan who told him to sell the team on Saturday. Dolan called the fan "rude" and told the fan to "enjoy watching [the Knicks] on TV." TMZ Sports published video of the incident.
Madison Square Garden Company told the AP in a statement, "Our policy is and will continue to be that if you are disrespectful to anyone in our venues, we will ask you not to return."
Oakley, who played 10 of his 19 NBA seasons with the Knicks, had an assault charge against him dropped stemming from a Feb. 8, 2017 Knicks-Clippers game in which he was ejected for yelling insults directed at Dolan.
Dolan temporarily banned Oakley from the arena, but lifted it after a meeting between the two of them, Michael Jordan and NBA commissioner Adam Silver.
Oakley said he has no reason to reconcile his differences with Dolan.
"Why would I want to do it with someone who had me dragged out of the Garden for no reason," Oakley told the AP. "Why would I want a relationship with him? I told him I wasn't happy."
