Spike Lee grew up near the Nets' new arena. His offices are three blocks away. He put Brooklyn on the map with "Do The Right Thing," but he says there is NO way he will give up his orange-and-blue for black-and-white.
He does admit to disappointment, shaking his head over the loss of Linsanity and he knows it will be 40 years in June since the Knicks won anything. Still, he also knows what his colors are and will be. "Orange and blue. My son is going to be orange and blue, and his son after him. And they are going to bury me in these colors," adding after a slight pause, "In Brooklyn."
