Rev. Sharpton is calling upon Mr. Dolan to lift the ban and reinstate Mr. Oakley's privileges.
The person who spoke to the AP on Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the discussions were to remain private says the former Knicks star who was arrested at a game last week is welcome back at the arena.
But the sides reconciled, helped by a meeting Monday at National Basketball Association headquarters with Commissioner Adam Silver, with Hall of Famer Michael Jordan participating in by phone.
"You doing it for me, it's all good".
"I'm thankful that the Knicks opened the door when he is ready that he can come back", Van Gundy said.
Meanwhile, Warriors All-Star enforcer Draymond Green went on the attack Wednesday, saying Dolan displayed a "slave mentality" in handling the Oakley crisis. "A slave-master mentality. That's ridiculous".More news: Justin Bieber Accused of Punching Man in Cleveland in 2016
Green was speaking on his podcast, "Dray Day", when he began discussing the acrimony between Dolan and Oakley, which took an ugly turn last week when the 53-year-old former Knick was arrested after being forcibly removed from a courtside seat at Madison Square Garden.
"It was all fine and dandy when he was laying people out, taking fines and all this stuff for your organization".
A spokesman for Adams told The Post Adams is still "actively monitoring the situation" and wants to ensure the Garden will drop the charges against Oakley.
Oakley will surely return to the Garden at some point, but it will be on his terms. In those five days there were verbal jabs thrown at each other by Oakley and Dolan, including baseless accusations from Dolan that Oakley was an alcoholic.
"Both Mr. Oakley and Mr. Dolan were apologetic about the incident and subsequent comments, and their negative impact on the Knicks organization and the NBA", Silver said.
"He may have a problem with alcohol". Because it's a story really that, if you really boil it down to its essence, has very little to do with anything that's going on in the world right now.
"Oakley is a legend, " Green said. "How can you even pin that on someone?" "Not a big deal for our guys, they handled it pretty well, but there is always talk about it. That's grimy. I think that's wrong".
