Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

NEW YORK - Charles Oak­ley is al­lowed back in Madi­son Square Gar­den, though the for­mer New York Knicks star says he wants an apol­ogy be­fore he would re­turn. MSG chair­man James Dolan banned Oak­ley last week, two days af­ter the for­mer power for­ward had an al­ter­ca­tion with se­cu­rity guards while at­tend­ing a game and was ar­rested. But the sides rec­on­ciled, helped by a meet­ing Mon­day at NBA head­quar­ters with Com­mis­sioner Adam Sil­ver, with Hall of Famer Michael Jor­dan par­tic­i­pat­ing in by phone. Jor­dan and Oak­ley were team­mates in Chicago be­fore Oak­ley was traded to New York, where he be­came a fan favourite with the Knicks from 1988-98.
