But from this point on to the end of the season, “Spike Lee” says he won’t be attending any more games this season.
At this Past Sunday’s game, Spike Lee and a team Security Guard engage in a war of words over what entrance he can use.
Appearing on ESPN’s First Take on Tuesday morning, Lee said he’s taking a hiatus from Madison Square Garden
SPIKE LEE: “I’m coming back next year, but I’m done for the season.”
HERE IS THE VIDEO OF SPIKE LEE TELLING HIS SIDE OF THE STORY ON ESPN’S “FIRST TAKE.”
Spike Lee’s comments come a day after a video circulated online showing Lee yelling at Garden security outside an MSG elevator, leading some to say he was thrown out of the arena. But a Knicks spokesman said that was untrue and that it was simply an issue of Lee using the wrong entrance.
