Fresh from shooting his new film, Spike Lee walked onto the basketball court at the O2 Arena clad in Knicks gear and ready to cheer on his team.

The American director is a staple at Knicks games in New York, and the trip across the pond for a regular-season NBA matchup against the Detroit Pistons just wouldn't be the same without him.

Wearing a big orange hat, Knicks sweatshirt and blue pants, Lee summed it up nicely: "The orange and blue, baby."
