Jeff Bezos first mission in New York didn’t work out quite as planned, as the Amazon HQ2 was called off when it was planned to be built in Long Island. It turns out that Bezos might not be done in the city of New York according to Knicks legend, Charles Oakley.
During the filming of a pilot for The Ringer “Tough Chef with Charles Oakley,” the former Knicks big man told Bill Simmons and Jason Concepcion that Bezos was still looking to make a big splash in New York, and there is no better way to do it than buying the Knicks.
“I heard that Jeff Bezos wants to buy the Knicks,” Oakley said. “He was gonna try to do Amazon in Long Island City, and he went to Virginia. So he still wanted to do some real estate in New York. So why not buy the Garden?”
Here is the clip from the show:
