Spike Lee to launch NBA Radio show on SiriusXM next week
Director, producer, writer and actor Spike Lee will launch a show on NBA Radio next week, another venture for the 56-year-old New Yorker who's also made a name for himself by attending virtually every Knicks home game.
According to a report Wednesday from NBA writer Brian Mahoney of the Associated Press, the show, "Spike Lee's Best Seat in the House," will debut Jan. 30 and be his platform to opine on various topics from around the NBA. Lee will also host another show that's geared more toward long-form interviews that will run every two weeks, but not much is known about that show as details are still being finalized for the program.
NBA Radio, which launched last week, gives former players and coaches an opportunity to discuss the basketball landscape. It also live broadcasts at least 14 games per week.
Lee helped turn Miami Heat guard Ray Allen into a Hollywood star with the lead role in the 1998 cult classic "He Got Game," which details a prep star's rise to basketball stardom as he looks to help reduce his father's prison sentence. Earlier in January, it was reported that the two had been talks for a sequel. GOLLIVER: Video: NBA fines Pacers’ Lance Stephenson for second flop this season
