Draymond Green Says James Dolan Has ‘Slave Master Mentality’ With Charles Oakley
Draymond Green is no cupcake, as he keeps proving. If you thought a triple-double that doesn't include points (last week) is remarkable, then how about this hot take on the New York Knicks and owner James Dolan?
In defending ex-Knicks strongman Charles Oakley, Green had this to say about Dolan (via New York Daily News):
“You doing it for me, it’s all good,” Green said. “You doing it against me...you speaking out against my organization, it’s not good anymore? That’s a slave mentality. A slave master mentality. That’s ridiculous. It was all fine and dandy when he was laying people out, taking fines and all this stuff for your organization. But now all of a sudden when he says something that he feels, it’s a problem.”
Green said it during his podcast on Wednesday:
Green is one of several NBA players to come to Oakley's defense in wake of the big Madison Square Garden incident of Feb. 6 -- with LeBron James being the most prominent. James posted a picture of Oakley on Instagram with the word "Legend".
No current Knicks player has spoken out, however.
After a meeting with Oakley, Adam Silver and Michael Jordan, Dolan has reached out with an apology, lifting Oakley's ban from entering MSG and saying he may invite him to a game. Oakley has said he doesn't accept the apology.
