Oakley Offers Services To Any Suitors, ANYONE PLEASE!!!

3.2 Rebounds/2.3 points per game, that’s what the man they called OAKTREE averaged in his last 3 years as a pro. Looks more like a willow to me. At 6’9, Oakley hacked his way through 19 seasons of jungle ball without (brace yourself) ever winning a championship ring. The ex-Knick/Bull/Wizard/Raptor/Rocket stated that he would return for 9-10 million for two years. Hmmm… Any GMs looking for a high priced, over-the-hill, talentless thug that can offer his “leadership” skills to younger players? I wonder if he has Isaiah’s #? Call me a pessimist, but I can’t help but wonder if this comeback attempt has something to do with his upcoming book. Then again, a little PR never hurt anyone. Do us all a favor Oaktree, wither away. Nobody outside of NY cared about you when you were in the league and nobody cares now. We’ve seen how you’ve mentored athletes into superstars (props to Eddy Curry and Kwame Brown). That job is now taken by that Australian guy who taught Shaq how to shoot freethrows. Beware Portland!!!
