This Ex-NBA Player Was Gambling In A Vegas Casino When A Camera Caught Him Engaging In A Dubious Act

Charles Oakley was renowned for being something of a bad boy during his 19-year playing career in the NBA. And the 6ft 8in star seems determined to keep up his reputation now that he’s off the court. Indeed, a recent trip to a Las Vegas casino landed Oakley in a whole lotta trouble.

Born in Cleveland in 1963, Charles Oakley studied at the Virginia Union University where he played basketball for its Division II team. In his senior year he averaged 17.3 rebounds per game, the best in the league. And upon graduating in 1985, Oakley was chosen as the ninth overall pick in the NBA draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers before then being traded to the Chicago Bulls.
