Spike Lee was referring to the dispute between Knicks owner James Dolan and Oakley. James Dolan had once gotten Oakley arrested and ejected him from the team, while also banning the fan for telling him to sell the team. According to reports, James Dolan did not want Lee entering MSG, though there was no specific reason. However, the MSG and Knicks staff stated that the issue was caused only because Spike Lee used the wrong entrance.
