These two loved their dice.

However, Tyrone Hill didn’t quite have the luck Charles Oakley did. Hill owed Oakley $54,000 from a dice game but was hesitant to pay his debt.

The tension between the two spilled over onto the court one day when Oakley slapped Hill across the mouth during a shootaround before a preseason game.

Months later, Oakley was suspended again after throwing a ball in Hill’s face during a shootaround. Oakley insisted Hill paid him double after his “coward move.” Tyrone Hill eventually settled with Charles Oakley for double the $ amount he initially owed him.
