Spike Lee jokes about Knicks during Oscars: ‘We’re trying to tank’

Spike Lee can’t even escape the New York Knicks during the Academy Awards.

Lee on Sunday night won his first Oscar, receiving the nod for Best Adapted Screenplay for his movie “BlacKkKlansman.” Prior to the announcement of the award, actor Samuel L. Jackson, who was presenting along with Brie Larson, made an announcement on TV to Spike, telling him that his beloved Knicks had broken their 18-game home losing streak with a 130-118 win over the San Antonio Spurs. News like that would ordinarily make a fan happy, but Lee shot back that the Knicks are “trying to tank.”

Nobody ever said Lee wasn’t a fan in the know. He understands the team’s goals, which is to land the major game-changer, not to mention potentially sign Kevin Durant.
