Spike Lee took to Instagram and opened up about the incident between him and the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden last Monday.

Lee was told he was using the wrong entrance for Monday’s game against the Houston Rockets. The famous director has been using the same entrance for over 20 years, so he was confused why there was an issue.

Lee stated he believes Knicks owner James Dolan did not want him to enter the arena.
