According to Nicole Tucker, the Executive Casino Host at Caesars Palace, former NBA tough-guy Charles Oakley – best known for being Michael Jordan’s “bodyguard” and this memorable incident with Tyrone Hill – got jumped in Vegas last night. Tucker tweeted this photo of Oakley and wrote, “Oak got jumped at Aria not once but twice by security.” [See other photos here.] Oakley’s NBA toughness was legendary. Nobody talked back to him. Who could forget this moment against the Hornets? His altercation with Hill might be one of our favorite NBA moments of the last 20 years: “Everything in life is double. “If he didn’t pay me $108,000, he didn’t pay me … A gentleman pays his debt within a week or two.” [pic via Nicole Tucker]
