This might be a new low for the Knicks as an organization.

During their game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday, former Knick and NBA legend Charles Oakley became noticeably belligerent on the sideline. Oakley had to be restrained and he was later escorted out of the game by about a dozen security guards.

It’s unclear what happened to cause the scuffle, but it was later reported that Oakley had been arrested at the scene and that he would be charged with three counts of assault.

The Knicks also released their own awkward statement on the matter.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver happened to be attending the game on Wednesday night, and we can imagine that this ordeal is not something that he is particularly happy with.

Oakley, one of the most famous enforcers in the NBA from the mid-80s through the 90s, played 10 total seasons for the Knicks in his career. Oakley also played for Chicago, Toronto, and Houston in his 19-season NBA career.
