LeBron James, Dwyane Wade And Chris Paul Defend Charles Oakley

Charles Oakley’s feud with the New York Knicks and owner James Dolan isn’t dying down after an ugly incident Wednesday night which resulted in Oakley’s arrest. In the wake of the incident, support for the long-time Knicks star is pouring in from everywhere, including from current NBA All-Stars.

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul have all joined the chorus of praise for Oakley.

Wednesday night, James posted the following on Instagram to support Oakley:

Mood!! #Legend

Wade followed suit on Thursday posting the following to his Instagram account:

10years!!! 10 years Oak gave everything he had for this organization and the image everyone will be left with won't be this picture. It will be the imagine of him being taken down to the ground last night in the same arena he gave his all 2 as a player by the guards! This Could happen to any of us!!! #StayWoke We are not above this treatment!

Wade’s caption says a lot:

10years!!! 10 years Oak gave everything he had for this organization and the image everyone will be left with won’t be this picture. It will be the imagine of him being taken down to the ground last night in the same arena he gave his all 2 as a player by the guards! This Could happen to any of us!!! #StayWoke We are not above this treatment!

Paul joined his two buddies with the following post on Instagram:

Paul’s comments were even more indignant than Wade’s:

“Hope that he gets some help soon??” Don’t like the way they’re trying to portray Oak…ALWAYS had my back and the realest person our league has seen! #UncleOak

It’s clear how the players feel about the situation. It will be fascinating to see if the Knicks and Dolan try to make this right.
