Charles Oakley was reportedly one of MJ’s favorite teammates to shoot hoops with.
Oakley was originally drafted ninth overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 1985 NBA Draft, but his draft rights were traded to the Bulls and that’s how he ended up in the Windy City.
While Oakley was older and joined the Bulls before MJ did, he turned out to be a quality scoring option who provided consistent defensive and offensive performances for an up-and-coming Bulls squad that was led by the one and only MJ.
He was also Jordan’s enforcer.
The two met up last night at the Jumpman party.
Although Oakley never won an NBA championship with the Bulls, he’s still one of Jordan’s closest friends.
Not a bad friend to have,.
Here are a few tweets from the exclusive party:
Just ran into Rob Pelinka, general manager of the Los Angeles Lakers at Michael Jordan’s party & expressed to him that I’m sorry things didn’t work out into his favor but I’m genuinely pulling for he and the Los Angeles Lakers to do well! pic.twitter.com/FGkNgR6Jra
