Oakley Calls Out Barkley On Twitter: ‘You Better Stop Talking S*** About Cleveland’

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Former Knicks favorite Charles Oakley called out Charles Barkley on Twitter Wednesday night.

“Charles Barkley, you better stop talking s*** about Cleveland you was never tough you hide behind TNT,” Oakley tweeted.

Following the Cleveland Cavaliers 123-98 whooping of the Atlanta Hawks, Barkley responded during TNT’s “Inside the NBA.”

“Charles Oakley doesn’t like me, which is no big deal. I don’t like him or dislike him, I don’t think about it,” Barkley said. “He’s not important enough for me to think about. He don’t like me, I have no idea why.”

Host Ernie Johnson believes Oakley was irked by a comment Barkley made when he said the Hawks need to take out a Cavaliers player.

Oakley and Barkley got into a memorable fight during a 1996 preseason game between the Knicks and the Houston Rockets.

Oakley spent 10 of his 19 seasons with the Knicks.
