The Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks seemingly lead the league in celebrity fans, though I’m pretty sure we’d never seen the Lakers ban one of their famed supporters. The same can’t be said for the New York Knicks after owner James Dolan allegedly banned director Woody Allen from Suite 200, the VIP lounge at Madison Square Garden.
The New Your Post’s Page Six reports that Allen was banned because he wouldn’t take part in promotion for Dolan’s MSG Network or the Garden of Dreams Foundation:
Sources say Dolan had the Oscar-winning director banned from Suite 200, the VIP lounge at Madison Square Garden, after Allen refused to do any promotion for MSG Network or the Garden of Dreams Foundation.
Suite 200 is well known by celebrities, musicians and fellow athletes who gather in the swanky club before and after Knicks games.
It’s certainly a strange situation, but this comes from the same man who reportedly requested that the Knicks City Dancers stop, well, dancing at home games because he was upset with the play of the team.
