New York Knicks great Charles Oakley stood in handcuffs in the bowels of Madison Square Garden, surrounded by more than a dozen security guards and police officers. He’d been dragged out of his seat by arena security minutes earlier.

“Dolan did this! Dolan did this!” Oakley yelled in anguish, referencing Knicks owner James Dolan.” “This is bulls—! Let me go! Let me go!”

A year later, Oakley’s anger over how things played out during his arrest at Madison Square Garden remains acute.

“He’s angry about what happened to him and the way he was treated,” Oakley’s attorney, Douglas Wigdor, said. “He was treated like a common criminal rather than a former star of the New York Knicks. … He wants to hold Mr. Dolan and Madison Square Garden accountable for what they did.”

An investment made by Kobe Bryant has yielded more than 30 times its money in fewer than four-and-a-half years.

On Tuesday, Coca-Cola announced it purchased a minority stake in sports drink BodyArmor.

Bryant made his first investment in the brand, for roughly 10 percent of the company, in March 2014, putting in a total of roughly $6 million over time. Based on the valuation of the Coca-Cola deal, his stake is now worth approximately $200 million, sources told ESPN.

Bryant is now the fourth largest investor in the brand, marketed as a healthier competitor to Gatorade, behind the brand’s co-founder Mike Repole, Coca-Cola and Keurig Dr Pepper. When he invested in BodyArmor, the brand had just come off a year of $10 million in sales. BodyArmor is projected to top $400 million in sales in 2018.
