Charles Oakley issued a warning to his friend, LeBron: Stay away from New York. Stay far, far away.
In an interview with a Miami radio station on Friday, the ex-Knick said “I can’t tell him to go to New York. New York treated me bad. … When I go to the Knicks’ games, do you know that they have somebody that follows me around to see what I say to the press?”
Oakley, who spent 10 seasons with the Knicks, said The Chosen One should, instead, look south. “I said maybe Chicago or Miami . I think him and [Dwyane] Wade would be great together,” Oakley said.
But the New York bashing didn’t stop there for Oakley. He didn’t hesitate to take a shot at former teammate Patrick Ewing.
“Patrick was our leader as far as press and people who are watching TV … Patrick could have been more vocal for the team, but he wasn’t. I think that hurt us a little bit.” [WQAM]
