Count LeBron James in as having Charles Oakley’s back.
Following Wednesday’s incident at the Knicks game against the Clippers in which Oakley was arrested, James posted a picture of the former Knicks star on Instagram with the caption “Mood!! #Legend”
Oakley assaulted multiple security guards after he was confronted about sitting behind owner James Dolan. Oakley refused to comply with security and he was arrested inside the arena.
James’ Instagram post may be more of a sign of support for his friend Carmelo Anthony.
After all, Dolan is the one who hired Phil Jackson — the man who continues to take digs at his best player — and the mess that is the state of the Knicks starts at the top.
Or maybe James just remembers when Oakley came to his defense last week in his feud with Charles Barkley.
Oakley said, “I love everything LeBron James said about the hater he need to stop drinking at work.”
Whatever reason it may be, Oakley has an ally in King James.
