You won't be seeing Knicks superfan Spike Lee any more this season in his customary front row seats.

Spike eventually made his way to his seat and was able to watch the Knicks upset the Rockets.
However, he now believes he is being harassed by the Knicks owner James Dolan -- who has a history of thin skin.

As such, he will be sitting out the rest of the year.
