    Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard gestures to the crowd after winning in Toronto

    It takes a lot for players not to stick up for other players when it comes to disputes with management. Ownership and management have no loyalty towards the player, and in CBA disputes, well, you know who’s on who’s side. So the players speak up for any player that goes through something difficult. Except when…

    We told you the other day how Charles Oakley piled on LeBron James, joining a long line of former players and fans who do that (Charles Barkley is their front man). But that was just part of a whole interview of Oakley being Oakley, which you can find at SLAM. One other part of interest…

  4. Maybe we should let LeBron finish his career before we decide his legacy

    Not shown: hair on LeBron's forehead.

    Magic Johnson made a lot of friends around the Internet when he smacked around LeBron James the other day. Charles Oakley joined in. Cracking on LeBron as not all he could be has become a national past time. Saying he is not clutch because he doesn’t have a ring has somehow become accepted truth for…

    Shaquille O’Neal, out of the NBA and into the studio, remains one of the most interesting personalities in the sport. Because he’s up for anything. Such as going on Inside MMA television and naming the five NBA players he’d most want to fight. Some interesting answers, and frankly I’d pay to see a Shaq vs.…

But now the former Bull and Knick, and current Bobcats assistant coach, is suing a Las Vegas resort over an alleged beating by security guards last year. Oakley has filed a lawsuit against the Aria hotel at MGM…

  9. Charles Oakley to join Paul Silas’ staff in Charlotte

    Charles Oakley

    “My thing is, when (Charles) Barkley played basketball, he didn’t practice, he wasn’t a leader, he wasn’t this or that, he just had natural talent so he got chosen to the Dream Team, All Star team because he had the talent and he was the franchise player on the team.” “Dwight Howard is embarrassing Patrick…

  10. Xavier Henry not destined for Top Chef

    Oct 21, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Do you know the first thing you are taught in a quality cooking school? Omelets. Because cooking eggs right is not easy, there are a lot of good lessons to be learned. Eggs are challenging. Unless you are scrambling them, then it’s simple… oops, sorry Xavier Henry. The best part of this video — the…

    Unfortunately, yesterday we all missed out on Charles Oakley’s “world famous turkey burgers,” which he was serving up in a food truck set up near Battery Park in Manhattan. The entire thing recorded by a film crew. Why? Glad you asked. We’ll let the New York Post explain. (via Ben Maller) Former Knicks star Charles…

  12. Oakley being Oakley: LeBron should not go to New York

    Jun 4, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    If you’re looking for some crazy, look no farther than Charles Oakley. The 15-year NBA veteran has been out of the league for six seasons, but he still has plenty of opinions about it.
