Spike stops by the 'Nation to answer your questions on the New York sports scene.
We're tracking down Spike now. He should be here shortly.
If you had a choice of running a NY pro team, which one would you pick and why??
I have love for all the New York area teams but I've been a fan of the Knicks for the longest. Ever since my father took me to games at the old Garden.
How are you and reggie miller today?
Oh we're good friends and that's no BS. We were good friends before the incident and after.
Hey Spike, what is your biggest sports moment as a NY fan?
I have a lot of them. I was 10 years old when my father took me to Game 7 against the Lakers, I was there when the Amazin' Mets beat the Orioles, when Aaron Boone hit the home run off the Red Sox, Larry Johnson's four point game, the Giants Super Bowl win two years ago, the Mookie Wilson play, Jordan dropping 55 on the Knicks, Kobe dropping 61 on the Knicks ...I've had a lot of good moments.</p>
how u think the giants well fare this year
Not as good as the Jets.
whats up spike?? ready for a repeat in the world series?
Definitely. I still miss Melky and Matsui though.
Have you ever considered buying your own sports team?
Don't have that type of money.
Hey Spike love your work, besides Mr. Fix-It-All LeBron, what else do our Knicks need to stop these 50 loss seasons?
We have two max contracts so Donnie Walsh is going to say LeBron, you come here and pick you else you want beside you. They also need to bring Patrick Ewing in as an assistant coach. There is no reason that he shouldn't be apart of the Knicks organization. They also need to play defense. I've never seen a team win a championship without playing defense. Not in hockey, football, baseball, etc.
Who do you think has the best chance of knocking out the Cavs?
You never can tell. There is no guarantee that they will come out the East or that the Lakers will come out the West. It's all up for grabs.
will you do any more espn joint's
I will like to. I have a very good relationship with ESPN.
will you do any more movies with denzel washington?
I would love to. We were going to do Inside Man 2 but it didn't workout.
30 homers for Granderson this year. Agree?
Yes but he was to cut down on the strikeouts and he has to hit left handers better.
If You had to pick, Kobe or Mike?
Do you really think LeBron will leave Cleveland and go to New York
I think the Knicks have a better shot if Cleveland doesn't win a championship versus if they do win a championship.
from brooklyn native to brooklyn native greatest New York city ballplayer of ALLTIME in your opinion?....thanks spike im a huge fan..keep the spike lee joints coming!
I would say Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
Mr. lee I am a knick fan thru and thru are you having a struggle like I am when the nets move to brooklyn? I wanted to see your take of your loyatly? are you a knick or be both?
KNICKS. I know the Nets will move to Brooklyn and I'll go to some games but I'm still going to be a Knicks fan.
Will you ever make a movie again, that is similar to 'Do the Right Thing", with modern day problems
Yes, I hope to.
Spike, If the Knicks don't get Lebron, who do you think they should go after??
I think a lot people are going to be free agents the following year. If the Knicks don't get who we want this summer, then they should wait until next summer and see who will be available.
Spike is a true New York City area sports fan. He won't be buying a team anytime soon but he sure has insight on what they can do to improve.
Spike, any final words?
I hate that Duke won!
