Adam Silver & MJ Helps Settle Oakley-Dolan Feud
Tonight, NBA commissioner Adam Silver released a statement saying the Charles Oakley-James Dolan feud was basically over. They worked with Michael Jordan, a former teammate of Oakley, to come to e resolution. It’s incredible to see things come to this where the commissioner stepped in to figure things out. Silver continues to look like a people’s commish and defends the players versus the owners which is a major thing.

Charles Barkley on TNT tonight called the whole thing pointless, but I would respectfully disagree with Sir Chuck. Couple things happened here… This is a subtle warning shot to Knicks owner. He needs to shape up, or major questions will arise about if Dolan is fit for the job. There are many, many people would want to run one of the biggest franchises in all of sports. The other is players come first for Silver, and that’s an interesting approach to take moving forward.
Also what can MJ not do?
