New York Knicks superfan Spike Lee says he is done going to home games at MSG this season
Academy Award Winner and New York Knick superfan Spike Lee said that he will not be attending any more of the team’s home games this season earlier today on ESPN’s “First Take.” ESPN is reporting that Spike Lee and the Knicks are currently engaged in a war of words regarding what entrance Lee can use to get into Knicks’ home games at Madison Square Garden.
On “First Take,” Lee said, “I’m coming back next year, but I’m done for the season… I’m done.”
Lee appeared on “First Take” a day after a video was released online showing the award-winning director yelling at a security guard outside a Madison Square Garden elevator. Some people were saying that Lee was thrown out of the arena, but a spokesperson for the Knicks said that was not true and the issue was that Lee was trying to get into the game through the wrong entrance.
Spike Lee countered this claim by saying he had been using the same entrance to MSG for 28 years. Lee followed up this statement by saying, “I’m being harassed by James Dolan. I don’t know why.”
Lee has said that he will return to the Garden for the 2020-2021 NBA season, but he will not be attending more Knicks’ home games for the remainder of this season.
