Spike Lee goes all diplomatic in the intro to last night's New York Knicks vs. Brooklyn Nets rivalry. "It's been a long time," Lee says, before delving into the history of Brooklyn sports, love and loyalty.
Of course, Spike isn't always waxing poetic. He hopped on Twitter yesterday to silence anyone who may be doubting, including Marty Markowitz.
Dear Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz,With All Due Respect ILove BROOKLYN And New York Knickerbockers.No Way EVER I Change. NYK
