He was the best guy we thought we could find to run the New York Knicks.

It wasn't a problem when he was protecting their super stars then. So, if it wasn't a problem then, when he was doing it for y'all, why is it all of a sudden now when he's speaking out on something he don't like?

Whether I like the results or don't like the results, I am going to honor that agreement all the way to the end, and it's not over yet and my hope is that the team will become much, much better and that Phil will be successful.

The same people that fans who come to the game tonight, who are going to help those fans, right, find their seats, get them food, try to make them comfortable, they were abused and abused not – in really horrible, right, angry, nasty way, with racially, with racial overtones, the sexual overtones, the stuff you never, ever want to hear. And how do you bring your kids to a game if you think that's going to happen? You don't.

It's very clear to us, right, that Charles Oakley came to the Garden with an agenda, right, with a mission in mind, and from the moment he stepped into the Garden, and I mean the moment he walked through the first set of doors, he began with this behavior, abusive behavior, disrespectful behavior.

This is not just a day-before-yesterday incident. We've had a relationship with Charles since he retired and left the Knicks, right, and every time we have tried, right, to do, to patch things up with him, to mend things with him, we invite him to games, that every time it ends the same way, right: abusive, disrespectful. And we eventually gave up, right, and we stopped trying to reach out for him.

We are going to put the ban in place and hopefully it won't be forever. He should be up there being recognized because the fans do love him. But this behavior just doesn't work with that. That was just a situation where the person didn't work out and this was probably the last straw. We're obviously looking at everything that we did here along the way and what happened, and that's one of the casualties.

We are an American brand, and I think it's very appropriate that the Rockettes dance in the inaugural and Fourth of July and our country's great historical moments. I find it a little ironic. I get all of these emails, too, from people saying, Don't perform for this hateful person.' And then they proceed to spew out this diatribe of hate.

Yeah, in a way, I guess we are doing that. What other choices do we have? What else would you suggest?

I gotta sell tickets. A good portion of people voted for this person. Hopefully they will like our brand. If 1% of 1% of them come do our show, we're going to do great. 'Don't perform for this hateful person..

And then they proceed to spew out this diatribe of hate. Yeah, in a way, I guess we are doing that. What other choices do we have? What else would you suggest.
