OT: Oak is like Chuck Norris apparently (but in real life) 

Post#1 » by StephNYKurry » Tue Jan 8, 2013 7:59 pm

Due in part to the thread on Carmelo and what is and shouldn't be acceptable on the basketball court. I stumbled upon this...

http://brainworks.tumblr.com/post/59101 ... d-new-york

Here are some gems from it

-Before a regular season game, Tyrone Hill was leaving the floor after shootaround, and Oakley started throwing basketballs at him, one of which hit him in the face. Lets let Sixer point guard Eric Snow color the story: “Every time we play each other, Oakley says something about Hill. He’ll say ‘Where’s Hill at?’”


Why did he he intimidate and rough up Hill? Two years prior, Tyrone Hill lost a dice game to Oakley, to the tune of $54,000. “A gentleman pays his debt within a week or two,” Oakley said. Because payment was deliquent, Oakley charged him double, saying, “Everything in life is double. If he didn’t pay me $108,000, he didn’t pay me.”


his is a quote from Oakley on Kenyon Martin, “You got to know when enough’s enough. You want to rob the bank, but you better not be complainin’ when you get caught. In my day, a guy who jumps that high with that many tatoos, he would’ve wound up sitting on the floor at least once. It’s just the kind of player (Martin) is. And the kind of guy I am.

Charles Oakley slapped Charles Barkley across the face during a player’s union meeting. “I heard what he was saying about me in Atlantic City and I didn’t like it. I’m fed up with him. I told him ‘You need to change your name. I’m the only Charles.’” Oakley finished by telling Barkley, “Every time I see you, I’m going to slap you.”


Haha man I miss this dude !

This feud is why Barkley consistently hates on the Knicks.

Coach Oak
There is no asterisk on ANY N.B.A. titles.

Numbers don't lie, people who use them do

Obliged!

Charles Oakley vs. Jeff McInnis

Charles Oakley was no stranger to odd feuds throughout his career. In 2001, he was suspended one game for bouncing a ball off Tyrone Hill's head during the pre-game shoot-around -- reportedly because Hill owed him money from a card game. But that was not even Oakley's most notable feud of the season: that December, he was fined $15,000 and suspended three games for punching Clippers' guard Jeff McInnis from behind before the game. Rumor has it that the altercation was over a woman.
