Whether it was then when he was arguably the toughest player in the NBA or definitely now — Charles Oakley is going to speak his mind. This time around isn't any different.
Over the weekend, the hoops legend and former New York Knicks power forward took part in a live-panel discussion in Dallas about basketball. And when the topic of this current generation of NBA players came up, Oak said there's a chunk of today's players who are "sensitive" and that "some of them should wear dresses."
