New York Knicks fan Spike Lee to host show on SiriusXM NBA Radio


While the New York Knicks find it difficult to give a good effort on a game-to-game basis, maybe Knicks’s fans can get a better effort out of Spike Lee.

The director and passionate Knicks fan will host a show on SiriusXM NBA Radio beginning next week, discussing topics from around the league.

”Spike Lee’s Best Seat in the House” debuts Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. EST on Channel 217 and will air every other week, featuring guests from both the sports and entertainment worlds.

NBA Radio debuted last month, with former players and coaches hosting shows and the broadcast of at least 14 live games a week.

Lee’s show should be interesting to say the least, especially as it pertains to his opinions on the struggling Knicks.

”While he’s well known for his courtside allegiance to the Knicks, he knows the league and its history inside and out and can bring together the worlds of basketball and entertainment like no one else can,” SiriusXM president and chief content officer Scott Greenstein said in a statement.

Lee will also host a non-sports show featuring long-form interviews every two weeks. Details are still being finalized.

Spike has always been passionate and opinionated and needless to say the way the Knicks have been playing, he will have plenty to talk about.
