    I think this was because of covid. Someone must have been in that entrance and they couldn't tell Spike Lee that someone with covid was there. Because they would be worried he's gonna talk about it on tv. I'm honestly just trying to figure out why he got kicked out. I'm not sure any other reason why theyd do that

    If there's a change of plans and Spike didn't get the Memo, talk to him after he sits down and tell Spike the New Policy. A Target Employee would know how to handle the problem.

    I would not be surprised if Spike Lee went to Brooklyn or any other franchise in the NBA Jack Nicholson does the exact same thing in LA and E40 does the exact same thing in San Francisco/Oakland i don't know who these top flight security MF working at the garden but they all need to be fired because i have been working in security for now 18 and most of my career have been working in the hotel where most of these star stay in when they come to the Bay Area the one thing you was suppose to do for major guest of the hotel is lead them through the service elevator and lead them to their room for the night so they will not be seen by fans you know how i know this at the Marriott Hotel the Golden State Warriors HQ is in the same build as the Marriott in Oakland CA one guest i made the hugest mistake taking her to the main elevator with her bags and a whole bunch of GSW fateful fans was taken pictures of her lucky enough it was only about 5 that woman was the wife of Steph Curry Ayesha

    Whatever u want to say about lee he has been the most loyal fan as he said for 28 years paying a fortune for court side seats. He has stuck with the Knicks through basically since 2000 when ewing left it has been sadly a horrible team. What team stays awful for 20 years ? Particularly the ny Knicks. This guy Dolan has wrecked this franchise. How do u treat a loyal fan like spike like that ? How do u treat Oakley, a man who gave his blood sweat & tears like this. The fact he has to buy his tickets instead of comping him out of respect for all he did for ny. He is a legend. People still mention oak when talking about defense & his hard nosed style. To take this man out in cuffs & arrest him is a travesty.
