Knicks fans can blame the Oak man (partially) for their team’s failure to land James this summer. From the NY Post: “LeBron James was out dining with friend and former Knicks great Charles Oakley at Miami’s Prime One Twelve following his preseason game Monday night. Oakley is close to James and urged him not to play for the Knicks. He went as far as saying in June, ‘I can’t tell him to go to New York. New York treated me bad,’ adding, ‘I think him and [Dwyane] Wade would be great together.’ James took his advice, and the pair spent hours celebrating over dinner.” http://www.slamonline.com/online/nba/2010/10/charles-oakley-advised-lebron-against-joining-knicks/

Sounds like New York media just finding another reason to give him bad press.

wow your like 4 months late on this. another knicks hate thread in the making. whatever floats your boat, guy. just know that most knicks fans are disgruntled enough as it is about the knicks and our front office, that your ignorant, shallow, and hateful posts cannot hurt us more than james dolan hurts us. Not even close. what do you want us to do? defend Dolan? New Yorkers aren't that ****ing stupid. In Before Close.

I think we are all tired of this stuff by now. This has no impact on the NBA...so it is now closed.
