MJ wrote a check on the spot.
that > basketball.
it was Malcolm X....and Spike gave MJ, and all the other personal contributors credit in the end credits....in fact...think there is a dream team bus shot in the end credits of Magic and Michael.
they got their money back on the back end.
i understand that but I have old articles from Ebony , and spike is TRUE BLUE and ORANGE knicks fan..first thing he did when he got film money was buy season tickets...even before buying a home...
how do you bleed orange and blue and be best friends with guy who PERSONALLY roadblocked any title plans?
