Draymond Green says remarks about Dolan 'came off the wrong way'

Golden State Warriors All-Star forward Draymond Green clarified his comments about New York Knicks owner James Dolan using a "slave master mentality," saying his remarks "came off the wrong way" in regards to Dolan's treatment towards former NBA player Charles Oakley.

Oakley was ejected from Madison Square Garden and arrested during a game Feb. 8 after a physical altercation with security guards. Dolan later banned Oakley from the arena, but lifted the ban days later after commissioner Adam Silver intervened, with the help of Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan.

Oakley even compared Dolan to former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, who was banned for life from the NBA and forced to sell the team after being heard on an audio recording making racist remarks.
