In a post to his Instagram, Spike Lee urged Pope Francis to say a prayer for the Knicks. He hopes to meet him and deliver the message in person.

The Knicks could use more than a prayer. Last year the orange and blue squad had only 17 wins all season. Let’s hope the pontiff blesses the Knicks’ locker room with a miracle. Prayers up.
