Legendary director Spike Lee has celebrated the day of New York Knicks’ first championship in the NBA and revealed priceless memorabilia on his Instagram page.
On this day May 8, New York Knicks defeated Los Angeles Lakers in a best-of-seven series 4 games to 3 for their first NBA title. It was the first NBA championship of Knicks.
One of the names who witnessed the Knicks’ championship this day was Spike Lee. Lee, a Knicks fan, posed with ESPN television host Stephen A. Smith with a net from Game 7 of Knick vs Lakers.
Here’s what Spike Lee captioned:
“On This Day -May 8th,1970 (FIDDY ONE YEARS Ago) Da New York Knicks Won Their 1st NBA Championship. My Brother STEPHEN A. And I Hold The Net From That Game 7. I Wuz At That Garden For The Glorious, Magical Night. FIDDY Years Later We Are Seeing And Skies. And Dat’s Da “Here Comes Willis Truth, Ruth”

Last Year, Spike Lee said that he wouldn’t attend any games for the rest of the season after a quarrel with the CEO of Madison Square Garden Sports and Madison Square Garden Entertainment James Dolan and Garden security over him using the wrong entrance at a game. Despite this controversy, Lee is still one of the biggest Knicks fans.
