"You want to arrest me like Charles Oakley?" he said, referring to the 2017 incident involving the Knicks former center. "They got a new president and all everyone is talking about what happened between Spike Lee and the Garden". A video clip flowed on-line proving Lee chewing out Garden protection outside a lift, leading some to claim he was tossed out of the sector. He said during his ESPN appearance that he told Dolan the two have nothing to talk about when Dolan approached him. That's how badly Knicks owner James Dolan has f***ed this franchise.

Oakley also addressed Lee's altercation with ESPN's Golic and Wingo on Wednesday, saying Knicks owner James Dolan is the consistent problem.

Spike Lee won't be coming to any more Knicks home games this season after an incident at Monday night's game. "And I don't remember shaking his hand". Watching Lee, the Oscar-winning writer-director, go through another dust-up had Oakley feeling as if he was in some sort of sequel to He Got (Kicked Out of The) Game. "In fact, when he came over to me, I didn't get up right away, I was just sitting in my seat", Lee told the sports network. "It's disappointing Spike would create this false controversy to perpetuate drama".

This whole thing would be hilarious if it weren't so pathetic, and the Knicks might have a point if their credibility hadn't been blown on these kinds of petty vendettas before against other people with deep ties to the organization.

But Lee said he had already had his ticket scanned so he refused to leave, fearing that he wouldn't be allowed back in.

A judge dismissed Oakley's lawsuit against Dolan and Madison Square Garden last month.

"It just keeps happening in New York", Oakley said. All the boroughs. He's a game changer for black movies, black superstars. "This wasn't fair", Oakley told The Associated Press in a phone interview. He gave a lot of people chances to better themselves. NY has won its last two games in large part because of the heroics of young players like RJ Barrett, Mitchell Robinson, Frank Ntilikina, and Kevin Knox.

Or, who knows, maybe the pull of Durant and Kyrie Irving will be enough for Lee to show up court side at Nets games from now on.

The Knicks on Tuesday pushed back at the suggestion Lee had been unfairly treated.
