Last night, Spike Lee followed through with his pledge to boycott the Oscars, instead choosing to attend the New York Knicks' game against the Miami Heat at Madison Square Garden. Despite the change of setting, Spike was dressed to impress, and he pulled out a very fitting pair of Js for the occasion.

In these images captured by @geminikeez (who you should already be following on Instagram, by the way), we can see that Spike pulled the gold-leafed "Oscars" Air Jordan VI off his mantelpiece for the big night. These were gifted to Spike back in November 2015 by Jordan Brand and originally believed to be a one-of-one, however we now know that there's at least one more pair floating around out there.

In the end, the Knicks fell to the Heat, but it goes without saying that Spike picked up a major personal victory here. For a detailed look and more details on the "Oscars" Air Jordan VI, click here.
