We love Oak here at Menudo Bol. The guy represents everything about basketball that was right but is no longer alive in today’s game. Here’s what Oak had to say on ESPN radio about the whole Dwight Howard fiasco.
“A lot of guys cry in this league these days. I try not to get caught up in that. The management in Orlando let him get away with it. Most times, they put kids in timeout. They never put him in timeout. He just kept crying and got his way. Now he’s in LA with Kobe so they got a chance to win a couple championships in the next two or three years. They could have traded him and got something better for him last year. I think they just tried to play along. They just pleased him anyway they could but he never did anything to please them.” – Charles Oakley
