2. Spike Lee
One of the focal points that is anticipated for the two parts to be released this weekend is the Bulls rivalry in the 1980’s and 1990’s with the New York Knicks. The two traditional big market franchises in the Eastern Conference were also two of the most successful teams in the late 1980’s and throughout most of the 90’s.
In the modern day, the Bulls and Knicks are two of the consistent laughing stocks in the East. But that was the farthest thing from the truth when MJ and Patrick Ewing were leading the way in the Big Apple and the Second City.
Much like you can’t go without talking about MJ and D-Rose in the discussion of Chicago sports and basketball, it is very true that you can’t talk about Knicks fandom without bringing up the legendary movie director Spike Lee.
This wouldn’t be the first time that Spike appeared in a ESPN documentary talking about the Knicks. He was one of the main focal points of the ESPN “30-for-30” documentary that released about 10 years ago called “Winning Time: Reggie Miller vs. The New York Knicks”.
And it wouldn’t be too shocking to see him appear talking from a fan’s perspective for the Knicks side in the rivalry with the Bulls from its glory days in the 1990’s.
Spike is who most basketball fans would first think of in the image of a “Knicks celebrity superfan”. He’s one of the icons of the Knicks fan base.
