The current New York Knicks are trying to make Big Apple fans relive the years when they struggled to be as competitive for the title as they were more than two decades ago. While they are trying to do that, however, superfan and director/producer Spike Lee hopes to remind everyone of the team’s glory days in the 1970s and 1990s.
According to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, Spike Lee has confirmed that he is working on a film series based on the book “Blood in the Garden.” The 65-year-old Knicks superfan stressed that “this is not a rumor.”
Unfortunately for fans, Lee did not mention the expected release date of the first installment of the film series.
And for Knicks fans:

The book “Blood in the Garden,” written by Chris Herring, tells how the Knicks of the 1990s, led by Pat Riley, Charles Oakley and Patrick Ewing, earned the respect and love of fans with their winning ways as well as immense physicality.
No other details about Spike Lee’s film have been leaked. It is not known who will star in the film and what the focus of the stories in the series will be. However, considering the fact that Lee has already confirmed it, there is a good chance that we will know more soon.
