Two Passionate Celebrity Knicks Fans (Spike Lee and Phife Dawg) Speak Out

The Heat and Pacers are currently going toe to toe in the Eastern Conference Finals, leaving the Knicks and their fans alike to sit back at home in awe and frustration at what could’ve been.

Before New York ultimately attacks its offseason and the front office aims to make necessary changes and improvements, plenty of fans are still reflecting upon what went wrong against Indiana.

One of those very fans, of course, is Spike Lee. Clearly one of the most passionate celebrity Knickerbocker fans of all time, Spike has been aboard for both the good times and the bad ones.

In the clip below, Spike chats with Stephen A. Smith and Skin Bayless of ESPN regarding what stung most about the loss and what may lie ahead or the Knicks. An ongoing theme between the trio was undoubtedly the fact that the Knicks were seemingly constructed to match up best against the Heat (not the Pacers), but feel free to watch the clip for more.

Whereas the renowned director is taking time to reflect, my pal and Podcast co-host (we’ll be hitting you hard with new episodes closer to the draft), rapper Phife Dawg, is ready to look ahead.

The A Tribe Called Quest legend and self proclaimed sports historian provided fans with a peek into what his mindset will likely be come draft time. He put together a neat little mock draft on Instagram that you can find here.

Do you agree with Spike Lee’s post-postseason thoughts? Is Phife on point with his draft selections? Let me know on Twitter @KnicksJournal.
