With his own production company, 40 Acres, and a Mule Filmworks, he has been producing more than 35 films since 1983, starting with “She’s Gotta Have It.” As a director and producer, Spike Lee focused on unconventional themes such as colorism in the black community, urban crime and poverty, and the role of the media in contemporary life.

Despite being an Academy Award-winning director, Spike Lee is deeply rooted in the field of sports, particularly the NBA, where his all-time favorites are the New York Knicks. Spike was a big fan of the Knicks and was always there to support them. But something feudal seemed to have happened in 2020 so it may have gone down.

In February 2020, the Knicks were supposed to play the Rockets at their home, Maddison Square Garden. And Spike Lee was there to attend, as usual, he entered through the employee entrance he had been using for the last 28 years, but this time there seemed to be something wrong.

Virgo Lee He was supposedly stopped at the employee entrance he always entered and the reason was not clear at all, it was quite uncomfortable for the player. “Security guard, this is coming from above, ‘Mr. Lee, you have to leave Madison Square Garden, they asked me to leave the ‘Garden… exit the 33rd Street employee entrance where I came from and go back to 31st Street. … And I said, ‘I’m not going’.”

Although Spike Lee was allowed to stay because his ticket was scanned, he had a rather unpleasant conversation with James Dolan, president of Maddison Square Garden. “(Dolan) said, ‘We need to talk,’” I said, ‘What should we talk about?’” Lee said, describing their halftime interactions. “I said Mr. Dolan, I’ve been coming here for 28 years… Why wasn’t I informed by e-mail, text, phone?’ ‘Now you know,’ he says. said Spike.

After hearing all this, the actor, who spends nearly $300,000 each year on courtside tickets for the Knicks, said that Spike Lee might find it pretty easy to come to Maddison Square Garden entirely. “I just finished coming to MSG this year to cheer the Knicks”.
