The Charlotte Bobcats added an assistant coach for next season on Tuesday amid concerns Charles Oakley won't be able to return to the bench because of health issues.
Charles Oakley, one of the NBA's all-time tough guys and now a Charlotte Bobcats assistant, has sued a Las Vegas resort over what he calls a May 2010 "gang-style beat down" by security guards who injured him.
Charles Oakley, one of the NBA's all-time tough guys, doesn't want to talk about his excruciating back pain.
Charles Oakley was known as an enforcer, Michael Jordan's bodyguard and a rebounding machine in a bruising and lengthy career. He had feuds with players, entire teams and believes he's responsible for the NBA's strengthened flagrant foul rules.

Oakley was an invited guest at Aria's VIP pool area May 28 when he left the area, the complaint says, but security officers and staff prevented him from re-entering.
