Random little nugget last night from the Associated Press on beloved former Knick, and friend to the LoHud Knicks Blog, Charles Oakley.
It seems the Oakman was involved in some sort of altercation with security of the MGM in Las Vegas back in May of 2010, and allegedly suffered serious injuries to his neck, back, head and wrist, “all or some of which may be permanent and disabling,” per the lawsuit.
I haven’t yet had a chance to track down Oak’s side of the story here, and pending litigation usually tends to induce the parties the clam up, but I have a hard time believing that any normal group of security personnel could cause harm to the historically invincible power forward.
Maybe if there were like 20 or more more guards, and they were armed with batons — or nunchucks — then maybe, just maybe, they might have been able to save their own lives, but injure Oakley?
No way, man. There’s just no way.
