Last night game one Laker vs Nuggets, Spike Lee was cheering on Kobe at Laker game in the front row.

What you all think?

What's your point, I think everyone knows that. Doing a documentary and cheering on a rival kind of seems like two different things.

I'd say it's traitorous, . Saying that he's trying to help sell his stupid movie about Kobe is dumb; Kobe doesn't need to be cheered on by Spike Lee to be marketable. Kobe is Kobe, people will pay attention.

Spike Lee is a moron, he plays the race card to try and sell his movies any chance he gets, his movies suck, and now he's cheering on the Lakers.

I hope Orlando makes the Finals against the Lakers so Patrick Ewing can get up from the bench and ***** slap that hack gimmick director.

Ok not a knick fan, but why should they care its not like they are even in contention for the playoffs nevermind the conference finals. I think the knicks and their fans have way more to worry about than whom Spike Lee choses to cheer for!

Having other things to worry about wouldn't preclude me from having an opinion if Jack Nicholson was cheering on LeBron in Cleveland.

I just think its different when your team isn't in the playoffs and not even close to contention. He likes Kobe and just worked with him so yeah I think its kind of expected him to be at the game cheering Kobe on. I didn't say they shouldn't have an opinion, but seriously if thats the biggest concern for you as a knick fan than they really need to prioritize!

It's official: Spike Lee is a bandwagon-er. Why would anybody care? The man doesn't know much about basketball. He was cheering like it was the Oscars when Portland dumped Zach Randolph on New York.

First off I am a Laker fan hence the name USMCLaker. Second, I simply asked other people their perspective on the topic and third, who said it was the biggest concern or a concern at all.

Isn't this a basketball forum to discuss all things basketball related. Seriously, if you have such a problem with it and consider it to be such a waste of time than why do you waste your time to even comment on this thread.

I could see Jack paying his respects to him before the game like he has done with other great players in the past then letting him have it throughout the game.

I would honestly be shocked though to see him cheer him like Spike did throughout the whole game, but I would understand

Why not have a thread about something that's being talked about on sports programs, seems like a reason to open a thread not close one.

I was simply offering my perspective on the situation. Not sure where you came up with any of the other stuff. If I though it was a waste of time then I wouldn't have responded.

Spike is just a fan of the game.... That is all I really see it as. We all know his loyalty is with the Knicks and Knicks fans are the one set of fans that can appreciate good basketball no matter who it is. I hold the Knicks fans in high regard due to the fact they appreciate good basketball.

as a knicks fan it kind of sucks that our more notable fan is cheering on someone that's not on the knicks but i don't think it's a big deal that spike went to cheer on kobe to try and promote his documentary.. it's not like he was rooting for kobe while they were playing against the knicks..

the night kobe dropped 61 on us he was talking trash to spike during the whole game.. half the crowd had on kobe jerseys that night..

If you guys can stay healthy you should do alright. The problem is the west is so tight you can get 50+ wins and not make the playoffs.

No problem with it. Filmmakers make films about anything that interests them. Nothing wrong with cheering for the guy you just made a film about. Obviously he got closer to Kobe than he had been before and he was impressed. Totally fine with that.
