The statement says Lee shook hands with Dolan on Monday and agreed to no longer use the employee entrance, but Lee gave a different account of his interaction with the Knicks owner. On Wednesday, that meant fans starting a "sell the team" chant in the Garden as the Knicks lost to the Jazz, 112-104, with those fans being ushered out of the building.
Lee denied the Knicks' initial PR press release that stated Dolan and him were smiling and shaking hands calling it a "spin". The fan also posted video to Twitter of the interaction with security as well as a photo of he and his friends outside the Garden. "I played there 10 years".
Following the Spike Lee MSG incident, the Oscar-winning writer-director vowed never to attend another Knicks game after he was asked to enter the Madison Square Garden from the VIP entrance, as opposed to the employee entrance he has been using since the last 28 years. So if they change the thing, let me know! "It's disappointing that Spike would create this false controversy to perpetuate drama".
Lee told ESPN earlier Tuesday that he had already had his ticket scanned at the employee entrance on 33rd Street so he refused to leave, fearing that he wouldn't be allowed back in. In the video, Lee is heard screaming at the security guards that "no one told me" not to use the special entrance, and then he is heard getting belligerent with the security officials. The Knicks said he's welcome to come back anytime - "just not through our employee entrance".
Lee met with Dolan at halftime and remained in his seat through the game's conclusion. It's no secret that Oakley and Knicks owner James Dolan don't see eye-to-eye after the former Knick enforcer was ejected from a game and arrested in February of 2017.

Winter's Biggest and Brightest Supermoon Will Light Up The Sky Next Week
That's the strange-sounding nickname some skywatchers are using to describe the full moon that's coming on March 9 , 2020. Way back when, full moons were used to track the seasons and for this reason related closely to nature.
"Spike means a lot to NY".
It immediately drew comparisons to the Garden's treatment of former National Basketball Association star Charles Oakley, who was ejected and banned in February 2017. Oakley sued Dolan and Madison Square Garden, but the case was dismissed last month.
"If you wanna stop people from saying stuff, don't come to the games", Oakley said.
The Knicks and Lee are in a full-blown feud after a war of words Tuesday escalated tensions.
