The Knicks’ troubles spread from the current roster and front office to one of the franchise’s legends as Charles Oakley was pulled from his seat by five security guards and arrested during Wednesday’s game.

Oakley, seated directly behind Knicks’ owner James Dolan, with whom he has had an acrimonious relationship for years, was alleged to have been shouting at Dolan. Madison Square Garden security rushed to the scene and removed him from his seat during the first quarter against the Clippers. He shoved one of the members of MSG security and then was pulled out with Dolan standing just a few feet away.

As Oakley was pulled out by security, the MSG crowd started chanting “Oakley, Oakley, Oakley.”

The Knicks issued a statement that said, “Charles Oakley came to the game tonight and behaved in a highly inappropriate and completely abusive manner. He has been ejected and is currently being arrested by the New York City Police Department. He was a great Knick and we hope he gets some help soon.”
