Earlier tonight It was reported that Knicks Superfan and Oscar Award Winning director Spike Lee was denied access to Madison Square Garden.
There are a lot of rumors that Knicks owner James Dolan gave the order not to allow Lee into the building tonight’s game against the Houston Rockets.
Lee can be heard saying ” because no one told me. No one told me. I’m staying here. Now if you want to arrest like Charles Oakley go the f*** ahead. Oh, you going to arrest me, put my head behind my back like Oakley?”

Lee was referencing the 2017 incident were Charles Oakley was arrested
The circumstances of the video that shows Spike Lee and MSG security are unclear, but he’s been sitting at his customary courtside seat for Knicks-Rockets. So he wasn’t kicked out of the building.
Malika Andrew then reported that it was ‘untrue’ That Lee was asked to leave the Garden
A Knicks’ spokesperson confirmed that it is “untrue” that Lee was ever asked to leave the Garden on Monday Night. According to the spokesperson, there was a mix up over which entrance Lee should enter through.
