Reggie Miller vs. Spike Lee
New York Knicks’ superfan and famed movie director Spike Lee was a notorious trash talker from his floor seats at Madison Square Garden. In particular, he liked to direct much of said trash talk at former Indiana Pacers star Reggie Miller. So when Miller scored eight points in nine seconds to win Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinal, he — just for a moment — silenced Lee, along with the rest of Madison Square Garden.
But the most famous moment between those two will always be when Miller scored 25 points in the fourth quarter of a game against the Knicks, looked over at Lee, and put both hands on this throat, signaling the New York Knicks’ choke job.
