New York Knicks superfan is heading into murky waters.  Spike Lee went onto ESPNs First Take and had a low-key diss towards the franchise.  Is Lee entering Charles Oakley territory with the fan base being fed up with him too?

Lee has had his fair share of arguments with fans and players. He’s even recently had a dispute with the Knicks owner about what entrance to use. That whole situation shouldn’t have been a thing. It was blown way out of proportion.

However, that evil laugh that Lee let out about players coming to the Knicks was ridiculous.

First off, we all know Michael Jordan wasn’t coming to the Knicks. He wasn’t going anywhere but Chicago. But to hint at that New York was not a desirable destination in the 90s is wrong.

During that time, Dolan didn’t own the team. The Knicks had a franchise center in Patrick Ewing, great pieces around him and great coach. The Knicks were a desirable location for players.

But with Lee laughing about how players don’t want to come to the Knicks now is unlike him. It’s unlike him to take jabs at his team. The grudge between him and the owner is enough already. How old are we? Let it go and start to embrace the new culture Leon Rose is trying to put in place.

We all know that, currently, the Knicks are an undesirable destination. But the new regime is trying to change that and the culture. Rose is putting together a nice front office to make good quality players want to play for the Knicks.

Lee is continuing to let his frustrations with Dolan spew into the media. He’s beginning to make fans unlike him similar to Oakley. Whenever he opens his mouth it’s only negativity towards the franchise. This is not good for the New York Knicks as they’re trying to turn organization around.
