When asked who he was rooting for, the Knicks or the Cavaliers, Oakley responded, "the better team."
Oakley was ejected from Madison Square Garden and subsequently arrested on Feb. 8 after an altercation with security guards.
The ban was lifted several days later after NBA legendand NBA commissioner Adam Silver spoke with Dolan and Oakley. Despite the mediation, Oakley said he was still upset and does not plan on attending a game at the Garden any time soon.
