Charles Oakley was always known for expressing his opinion on anything. So when Oakley was on with Sid Rosenberg of WQAM in Miami, he delved into a number of subjects. Even how Dwight Howard is embarrassing Patrick Ewing.
“Dwight Howard is embarrassing Patrick (Ewing) if you ask me. He doesn’t have a ball player’s mind. And they tell me he is one of the best centers in the game. He wouldn’t have even made the league ten years ago. He would be on the bench. They say he won’t listen. Dwight won’t listen. How can you not listen to Patrick Ewing?”
“When we lose, they only point at us, never point at Patrick. 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. I think that sometimes we let our heart get in the way instead of playing the game. A lot of times when we play the Bulls, it was decision making. Pat Riley was a great coach, but sometimes he didn’t make the best decisions. Sometimes players on the court, we didn’t make the best decisions. It was everybody why we didn’t win a championship. Pat was our main leader. We stand behind him 100%. Patrick could have been more vocal for the team, but he wasn’t. I think that hurt us a little bit.”
That’s funny all this time I thought it was John Starks fault.
Oakley dropped the quote of the entire interview when asked Rosenberg mentioned how he would plant a Isiah Thomas kiss on him.
“Not too many people like Isiah these days. You ain’t gay are you?… If you see a man kiss me, I better be in my casket.”
Charles Oakley ladies and gentlemen.
