Apparently, Espn, and Family: Charles Oakley Ban Lifted, Oakley Wants Apology From Dolan @balleralert Charles Oakley Ban Lifted, Oakley Wants Apology From Dolan - blogged by: @eleven8 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just like that, CharlesOakley is once again allowed within the walls of MadisonSquareGarden. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ JamesDolan banned Oakley from MSG following an altercation during last Wednesday’s Knicks game. MichaelJordan and NBA commissioner AdamSilver met with Dolan Monday in an attempt to intervene in what Silver calls a “disheartening” situation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It is beyond disheartening to see situations involving members of the NBA family like the one that occurred at Madison Square Garden this past week,” Silver said in a statement. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Silver, both parties appear to be apologetic and it appeared as if things could be ironed out in the near feature. Apparently, everything seems to be okay, because the Knicks legend is now allowed to return to the Garden as Dolan’s guest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Oakley, though happy with the outcome, isn’t ready to return just yet. He tells The Dan Le Batard Show that right now he is “hurt,” and that he’s already told Silver he won’t return yet. In the meantime, Oakley is asking for an apology, not just for him, but for the fans of New York. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It’s not about being at the Garden,” Oakley told ESPN’s Jeff Goodman. “It’s about the fans. I want them to apologize to the fans. I told the commissioner I want them to apologize to the fans.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He tells the Dan Le Batard Show, “I have never asked for nothing. I love the fans in New York. They’ve been supportive. One of the things I told the commissioner, I want to have a press conference and I want him to apologize to me and the fans. They’ve had my back and they’ve felt the pain. I really appreciate the people all around who’ve had my back.”
Memes, Chargers, and Dodge: HH NEWS Dodge Announces Murica's Fastest Three-Row SUV With Six-Seat Durango SRT Via @carthrottlenews - If you desperately and regularly need to get three rows of people somewhere fast, Dodge has your perfect solution. - The Durango SRT is a six-seat, 475bhp muscle monster that will hit 60mph in 4.4 seconds and smash the quarter-mile in 12.9 seconds, despite sharing size and weight stats with an ocean liner. Top speed isn’t confirmed yet. - With a 6.1-litre Hemi V8 providing the power behind the practicality, the hottest Durango will tow up to 3.9 metric tons as well as catapulting 12 clenched buttocks towards the horizon. Peak torque is 470lb ft at 4,300rpm. - You’re not likely to miss it on the road courtesy of a wider body kit and lower ride height, part of which are front and rear springs stiffened by three and 16 per cent respectively. On the bonnet there’s a functional cold air intake and vents to improve cooling. - Naturally it’s an automatic, which seems fair enough in an SUV, but there are now seven user-selectable drive modes for the driver to play with. Switch to Sport Mode and shift times are 50 per cent faster than standard, while up to 65 per cent of the V8’s freedom goes to the rear wheels. - Manually down-shifting via the steering wheel-mounted paddles activates a rev-matching function to blip the throttle, which is a good thing when the engine is attached to an exhaust specifically designed to be loud, deep and beefy. - As well as Sport Mode, there’s Auto, Snow, Tow, Eco (no idea why) and Valet, which apparently changes the engine’s characteristics to mimic the V6 from the Charger, locking out access to first gear and shifting earlier than normal. Launch control and the paddle shifters are disabled. - For some reason there’s even a Track Mode, with 160-millisecond gear shifts and up to 70 per cent of the torque going to the rear axle. Dodge promises a ‘pronounced rear-wheel drive experience’. - So, if you like the idea of terrifying your wife, children and children’s friends all at the same time, this is the car for you.
