The feud between Oakley and Dolan rages on in a recent interview with Maggie Gray, of Sports Illustrated Now. Charles Oakley compared James Dolan to Donald Sterling, ex-owner of the Clippers who was forced to sell the team in 2014 due to a recording of him making racist remarks. After the comparison, Gray asked Barkley about Draymond Green’s recent podcast interview, where he stated that Dolan had a “slave master mentality.” Oakley agreed with Green’s comments, stating
“He’s a control freak. He got everybody in the Garden on pins and needles. The other owners know this, that’s the bad thing about it. They gonna let this end up happening like something happened to the LA Clippers. It’s that bad. But they won’t talk about it.”
Gray took the opportunity, and straight-up asked Oakley if he considered Dolan to be a racist, to which he responded “he’s on that level.” Watch Here:

Oakley was charged with four counts of misdemeanor after a fight broke out between him and the Madison Square Garden security. The charges were dropped, but the bad blood continues to come to a boil.
