It's been an eventful week for the Knicks.
On Monday, Spike Lee had a run-in with Madison Square Garden personnel and ultimately with James Dolan regarding using the wrong entrance.
On Wednesday, a group of fans started a 'sell the team' chant, and while there were conflicting reports about whether or not that group was escorted out of the arena, SNY's Ian Begley spoke with one of those fans to learn exactly what happened.
Kevin Cochrane, one of the fans who says he and the other fans he was with were escorted out of the building by a security supervisor, told Begley that they were indeed forced to leave MSG.
"We were escorted from our seats and then cornered and questioned by 10 security guards and a cop," Cochrane told Begley. "(Prior to that), we started chanting 'sell the team' and we were immediately confronted by a security guard who said we could potentially be arrested if we don't stop. We kept going and then we were swarmed by a sea of security guards within seconds."
Cochrane, 25, said security was aggressive with his group. He added that he and his group are angry with the direction of the franchise under James Dolan.
"We are as die hard as they come. Our grandfather had us watching the Knicks out the womb," said Cochrane. "We don't miss watching a game. We've been riding and dying with this team forever. We are frustrated with the circus going on at MSG."
Officials said on Wednesday that no fan was escorted out of the building for chanting 'sell the team" Cochrane said that isn't accurate.
"After questioning, the head (security) supervisor escorted us out the building through the employees entrance."
"We will not be returning anytime soon," he added. "But we will be continuing to watch them. We don't mean to add to the circus. But we're sick and tired of being sick and tired and we will not sit silent anymore."
"We want to make it very clear that this is not for attention. If the people got to know us they would see that this just because we live and die for the Knicks. This comes from the heart," he said.
There is a code of conduct at Madison Square Garden. One stipulation states that "guests should be respectful of those around them.
