CLEVELAND — He is known as a legendary tough guy on the basketball court, but off the court, Charles Oakley's heart is with the Cleveland community. While many spend their Black Friday looking for the best products to buy and deals, Oakley was using his time and talents to cook food at the Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry men's shelter in downtown Cleveland on Superior Avenue. The former NBA All-Star kicked off his morning at 5 a.m. slicing potatoes, dicing onions and mixing batter for French Toast.
