And that something turned out to be an intervention led by Michael Jordan, Oak's friend and former teammate and fellow National Basketball Association team owner like Dolan.
Oakley was banned from the "World's Most Famous Arena" after he was arrested during the first quarter of the Knicks game against the Los Angeles Clippers last week.
Though, Sharpton's mobilization of picketers "in solidarity", may no longer prove necessary, since an intervention spearheaded by NBA legend Michael Jordan and NBA Commissioner Adam Silver appears to have made real progress in brokering a truce between Dolan and Oakley.
Oakley was forcibly removed from Madison Square Garden and subsequently arrested on Wednesday. The lifetime ban was implemented on Friday but support for Oakley loomed large and longtime Knicks supporter Spike Lee wore an Oakley jersey to the team's game against the Spurs on Sunday. "In an effort to find a path forward, New York Knicks owner Jim Dolan, Charles Oakley and I met today at the league office, along with Michael Jordan, who participated by phone".
Oakley told the New York Post on Saturday following his release from jail that he was minding his own business when team security approached his seat.

About two-thirds of the increase recorded in 2016 was due to net immigration into the country, while the rest was from new births. The first of the three maps shows the percentage increase or decrease in population by census tract.
When asked if he would be attending Madison Square Garden as Dolan's guest, Oakley said: "Right now, no..." I want them to apologize to the fans.
"It's not about being at the Garden", Oakley said.
Oakley played with the Knicks for 10 years, cherishing the time he shared with the franchise in the 90s.
Oakley, however, is unlikely to be spotted sitting courtside with Dolan anytime soon.
