Spike Lee Rumors
During a recent interview, Yahoo’s Jordan Zakarin asked Lee why he didn’t attend the Knicks’ game against the Milwaukee Bucks in London. His response was priceless. “We’ve lost 16 motherf—–g games in a row. 26 out of 27,” he said. “And I’m gonna get on a plane for that?! I can take a cab to see them lose!”
The biggest baller in the stands during NBA games isn’t Spike Lee or Jack Nicholson or even Justin Bieber — it’s Jimmy Goldstein … who spends more money on NBA tickets than anyone else on Earth. You’ve seen Goldstein on the court at various NBA games over the years — and this week he confirmed what ex-NBA Commish David Stern has said … that he’s the NBA’s biggest investor when it comes to tickets. As for how Goldstein made his fortune, that’s a bit of a mystery — but point is, the guy drops BANK when it comes to basketball.
Speaking of Jackson, the Knicks president took a playful shot at Lee on Sunday, saying he was an avid fan of the Knicks who knew nothing about basketball. Lee said on Monday that he wasn’t offended, but also indirectly defended his knowledge of the game. “Look I go way way back with Phil and all these guys, so it’s all love,” Spike said, adding: “Here’s the thing: if Phil thought I didn’t know anything about basketball, I wouldn’t be doing this film.”
