Former Knick Stephon Marbury backs Spike Lee in feud against MSG
Knicks alum Stephon Marbury is siding with Spike Lee in the filmmaker’s battle with the team’s owner, Jim Dolan.
Lee is boycotting Madison Square Garden after he was asked to use the VIP entrance, rather than the employee entrance he has used for 28 years, at a game Monday. “I mean, he just gotta go through a different door,” Marbury told Page Six, “but at the same time, I think Spike always deserved the red-carpet treatment, because he spent millions — probably $10 million — on floor seats going to the Garden all these years. I think they will figure it out.”
He added at the premiere for his documentary, “A Kid From Coney Island,” at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, “I think there has been enough talk and controversy about it that people will eventually try to figure it out.”
Meanwhile, the star — who’s played and coached in China since 2010 — told us, “The food that you guys eat out here is not Chinese food. That shrimp fried rice, beef lo mein with broccoli . . . Panda Express is not it.”
Kevin Durant serves as executive producer of the film, which premieres Tuesday.
