Spike Lee took to Instagram this past weekend to open up about the incident which transpired between him and the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden last Monday.

Lee was told he was using the wrong entrance for Monday’s game against the Houston Rockets. The director and die-hard Knicks fan has been using the same entrance for over 20 years, so he was confused why there was an issue.

Spike went on ESPN’s First Take on Tuesday and said he believes Knicks owner James Dolan has it out for him.


Last Wednesday against the Utah Jazz, the Knicks drew their smallest home crowd in nearly 13 and-a-half years, falling more than 3,200 below capacity in a 112-104 loss to the Jazz.

The announced crowd was just 16,588, with noticeable patches of empty seats throughout an arena that lists 19,812 as its capacity for NBA games.

The 2012-13 season was the last time the Knicks had a winning record and made the playoffs. No one really knows when New York is going to be competitive again. The team is certainly hoping new team president Leon Rose’s litany of connections in the NBA will help the team improve from top to bottom.

Spike Lee, though, said he's done going to Knicks games for the rest of this season.
