Charles Oakley, one of New York Knicks legends, believes NBA players in the modern era care only about money.
Oakley said players prioritize money and clout over building chemistry and doing all the little things necessary to win an NBA title.
“Basketball has changed. You’re not getting the 1990s back. The game has a totally different atmosphere. You got to build a team with leadership and players willing to sacrifice.
These kids don’t care about basketball. All they care about is getting the check, playing video games and the social media,” the Knicks legend said, via Marc Berman of The New York Post.
Oakley also believes Jeff Van Gundy should not become the head coach of New York.
