Charles Oakley details why he won’t forgive former Knicks teammate Patrick Ewing

February 4, 2022

It has been nearly 25 years since Charles Oakley and Patrick Ewing donned a Knicks’ uniform inside Madison Square Garden. Even after the controversy and turmoil within the franchise, Oakley still has no plans to rebuild his friendship Ewing almost two decades later.

Oakley recently spoke with Ariel Helwani on The Ariel Helwani Show detailing why the two former NBA All-Stars are still no longer friends. In his 19-year NBA career, Oakley spent 10 seasons in the Big Apple. On the show, Oakley discussed various instances as to why him and Ewing won’t see eye-to-eye again.

“I just feel like he did trust the players in some situations, especially in the Houston series,” Oakley said. The robust and rugged Knicks teams of the 90s failed to win a NBA championship, losing to the Rockets in the NBA finals in ‘94 and the Spurs in ‘99.
