There is probably no more recognizable Knicks fan than Brooklyn’s own, Spike Lee.
We’ve watched him cheer his squad on through thick and thin over the last four decades, and tonight the Knicks have a chance at bringing greatness back to the Garden during the NBA Draft Lottery.
In preparation, Spike took to IG to issue a prayer for all Knicks fans as they await the team’s fate tonight. With Patrick Ewing repping the Knicks, Spike is hoping for the magic from 1985 to repeat itself so they can get Zion Williamson. So if you’re a Knicks fan, repeat after Spike.
