From the NY POST:
While the LeBron comment — “I can’t tell him to go to New York,” Oakley said. “New York treated me bad … ” — may stir headlines, Charles Oakley let loose with a few more jabs at the Knicks. Oakley lives in the Cleveland area and is friends with James. If James does ask, Oakley would point him toward the Heat. Oakley also took a shot at former teammate Patrick Ewing, who he claims never was blamed for the Knicks‘ failure to win a championship. “When we lose, they only point at us, never point at Patrick,” Oakley said. “Patrick was our leader as far as press and people who are watching TV, but the Knicks were made of a lot of tough guys and a lot of heart.
