Pacers Fan Rejects Spike Lee’s $40K Offer For Courtside Seats

Pacers Fan Rejects Spike Lee's $40K Offer For Courtside SeatsAccording to Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star, not even a $40,000 offer from New York Knicks superfan Spike Lee was enough to get one Indiana Pacers supporter to part with his courtside seats for Game 3.

‘Most Wanted’

“Spike Lee reportedly offered $40K for four tickets next to Pacers bench for tonight’s game, but seat owner Stewart Reed turned him down.”.

It’s a little-known fact that most post offices in Indiana feature a picture of Lee tacked to the “Most Wanted” bulletin boards behind the counter. In addition, most restaurants lose their licenses if they serve him food.


‘Barking up the wrong tree’

In other words, if he wanted a favor from a Pacers fan, Lee was barking up the wrong tree. Besides, we’re painfully close to the anniversary of the moment that set Knicks and Pacers fans at each others’ throats in the first place.

Lee might be responsible for He Got Game, but he certainly doesn’t “got ticket,” which is a delightfully ironic development.

If you were Stewart Reed, would you also turn down the $40K offer for your courtside seats? Or, would you instead forget that you were a Pacers fan and happily walk away with the 40 grand? Feel free to share your thoughts and opinions with us!

Michael Jordan Ties The Knot With Yvette Prieto

Michael Jordan Ties The Knot With Yvette PrietoWhen you’re arguably the greatest basketball player of all time, it’s impossible to fly under the radar. NBA legend and current Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan tied the knot with longtime girlfriend Yvette Prieto on Saturday in Palm Beach, Fla., according to People.com’s Jennifer Garcia.

‘Roughly 500 guests’

The event was held at the Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church. It featured roughly 500 guests, including some other former NBA stars. Notable attendees included Jordan’s former Chicago Bulls teammate Scottie Pippen, Jordan’s mother, former New York Knicks superstar Patrick Ewing and well-known director Spike Lee, among others. Fourteen-time major champion Tiger Woods was also on hand this weekend.

According to Michele Dargan of the Palm Beach Daily News, guests began arriving at the church around 3 p.m. ET, an hour or so before the wedding ceremony began at roughly 4:15 p.m. ET. The ceremony inside the church lasted about an hour as bells reportedly rang out not long after 5 p.m. ET, according to Dargan.


‘State-of-the-art’

An even larger crowd of an estimated 2,000 people gathered at the Bear’s Club, a golf course community in Jupiter, Fla., for the reception under a massive, state-of-the-art wedding tent. The reception was held not far from Jordan’s 38,000-square-foot home.

According to Garcia, the 50-year-old Jordan met the 35-year-old Prieto at a Miami nightclub five years ago and proposed to her in late 2011.
