Oakley Thinks He Can Bring the Nets 'Respect'

Charles Oakley knows what he can bring to each of the NBA teams he has targeted for a comeback...and how much they should pay him. That would be "two years, $10 million". Oakley, now a car-wash magnate, says he can bring the Nets "leadership and just, you know, bring respect...my defensive skills. I can still move, jump, rebound, and use my abilities." He disputes reports that he and Vince Carter had a "feud' in Toronto. Oakley, now 44, averaged 1.3 ppg and 0.7 rpg three years ago in Houston.
