In the other feud involving the Knicks’ lousy leadership, Lee is clearly siding with Charles Oakley over James Dolan.
Lee, the famed Knicks fan, wore a “Charles Oakley” jersey to the Knicks’ win over the Spurs yesterday. Why the quotation marks? Because it started as a jersey of Landry Fields, who wore Nos. 6 and 2 in New York.
Spike Lee didn’t have a Charles Oakley jersey when he needed one on Sunday. So he improvised. “I got every jersey, game-worn, but I couldn’t find an Oakley jersey. But I had three Landry Fields jerseys. So I took it to my guy, and he hooked it up. So officially, this is a Landry Fields jersey.”
Modified or not, Lee’s jersey still got his point across quite clearly.
Dolan has his sycophants. Lee stands with the people.
