He cheered jordan on as well even nick named him Money. All the while being a knick Fan. Besides, hes a millionaire with 1 of 4 teams to watch in the playoffs.None of which are his Beloved Knicks. May as well as watch it Live no?

Its no surprise that not only Spike would root for him but the knicks as well. Just like when the knick Fans chanted MVP,MVP for Kobe in MSG. They want kobe in NY, they wanted MJ and now Lebron....and why wouldnt you?

More deep thinking from one of the great minds of our time, or at least in his mom's basement.

Agree with me in what? Spike is not a Laker Fan.
He's simply an admirer. Jordan had many and I was one of them yet Ive been a laker Fan my entire Life. Its a chance to see a Great Player in action,arguably the best so why not? Plus, Spike did do a Piece on kobe which was recently aired on ESPN. It would have been a different story had spike sported a Laker Hat! Whoooo!
