Default Re: Spike a sellout for embracing Knicks killer?

because there are things more important than basketball believe it or not. spike lee was one of the only black indie filmmakers in the 90s and has done a lot for the film industry in that regard. i can't remember which movie, but one of his bigger projects he was lacking funding, which the studios wouldn't give him. he called up MJ (oprah and others) and flat out told it like it was ... needed money. MJ wrote a check on the spot.

that > basketball.
