It’s great to see New York basketball relevant again, and the Knicks could easily be up 1-0 in their opening round series against the Celtics were it not for a Ray Allen 3-pointer and a questionable shot attempt by Carmelo. The Knicks are still very much alive in the series because they’ve proven that they can bang with the elite teams in the East, and they certainly have one of the best sideline cheerleaders in the game in Spike Lee. The Brooklyn native, close friend of MJ, and rabid Knicks follower has been spotted all season long cheering on the blue and orange while wearing some sweet sneakers, like his Air Force 1 Low iD, the Air Trainer SC, and the Zoom Huarache TR Mid, but you might seem him rock these New York Knicks PE colorways of the Air Jordan Spiz’ike very soon (perhaps during tonight’s Game 2?). One version features a tonal orange upper with a black/white midsole and black ‘wings’, while the second tonal royal blue features orange wing-tips with the same black/white midsole, with translucent outsole tying ’em all together. Check out another shot of Spike’s Spiz’ikes after the jump and let us know what you think. via Spike Lee/Complex.
