Wednesday night New York Knicks legend Charles Oakley was arrested at Madison Square Garden and charged with multiple counts of assault. Rumor has it that he was heckling Knicks owner James Dolan. NBA legends, fans, media and current players took to Twitter to voice their opinion towards the incident and some players didn't think twice about holding back.

Hope that he gets some help soon? Not the right way to portray Oak...always had my back and the realest person our league has seen #UncleOak— Chris Paul (@CP3) February 9, 2017
