While grousing over the travails of the New York Knicks earlier this morning, WFAN’s Boomer Esiason wondered aloud what Spike Lee must be making of all this.

“Who cares?” shot back co-host Craig Carton. “Spike Lee is not the face of this franchise. You don’t even see him games any more. He’s a front-runner.”

“Now Woody Allen,” continued Carton, “he’s a real fan. My man, Woodrow.”

Moments later, Carton scoffed at a caller who reasoned the Knicks might find a taker for Stephon Marbury’s expiring contract next season.

“Nobody’s going to trade for him!” insisted the former Jersey Guy. “I think if you ask around the league, other teams have very little regard for Stephon Marbury.”

Perhaps WFAN might want to hire the fair-weather Spike Lee to explain to their on-air talent how the salary cap works.
