Spike Lee in Chapel Hill last night

A few weeks ago, Spike Lee was rumored to be attending the Kentucky vs. Morehouse game in Rupp Arena. He ended up going to the Watch The Throne concert in Madison Square Garden that night instead, despite serious talk about him being in Lexington that evening. We’re fine with that, though. The Watch The Throne concert was probably a lot more fun than watching his alma mater get beat by 85.

What we’re not fine with is Spike Lee hanging out with other teams. Spike sat front row in the Dean Dome last night for North Carolina’s win over Evansville.  He was introduced to the crowd as “The World’s Biggest Closet Carolina Fan.”

After the game, he visited the locker room to congratulate the team on the win.  UNC’s Dexter Strickland said, “He wanted some Carolina stuff, so we gave him some.”

It’s like that, Spike?! Pick a side.

    I didn’t realize Spike Lee was a midget…and if he wants UNC stuff he should buy it instead of begging in the locker room. Geez !

    UGG Spike Lee… wouldn’t want him sitting front row for anything for me. Way too much bad stuff to say on this one… He’s not someone you want around.

    Can we drop the whole Spike Lee thing? He’s far removed from many characteristics of a true KY fan and frankly isn’t that relevant. Now if the Turtle Man were a closet Carolina fan….

    What’s the point of this post? Why are you all acting like he was a potential UK fan just for coming to RUPP for the Morehouse game. Don’t you think he would have been cheering his ass off for Morehouse to keep it under 50 points?

    How did spike get famous? Have you seen any of his movies? He just makes heavily racist plot lines and makes the star come out on top. He makes movies like its still 1965

    I thought Spike Lee always did the right thing…Honestly, though, he’ll be in Rupp for a game eventually. Calipari has brought “Showtime” to Lexington.

    #42 I think it was the NBA fined him because he is part owner of an NBA team. NCAA doesn’t fine people, they just arbitrarily punish schools and players on a whim and a rumor.

    Who cares. He’s irrelevant…most players today were either infants or unborn when he was talking about the shoes or yelling at Reggie Miller. Looks like a gremlin too.

    Who gives a rats*ss about “Spike!!” He’s a bigotted racist and I hope he never lands in Rupp. UK can do “Much, much” better as regards to “Star Power!”

    isn’t he doing the same thing that jay-z got fined 50K for doing at the Final Four? if he was standing beside Anthony Davis in UK’s locker room the NCAA would be all over this

    When Spike wants to come to one of our games after our guy JORTS becomes rookie of the year….. we’ll remember this.
