NEW YORK - Security guards had to escort fashion designer Calvin Klein back to his seat at a New York Knicks game after he walked up to Latrell Sprewell and talked to him in the middle of play.

Sprewell was about to inbound the basketball just before the end of Monday night's game against the Toronto Raptors when Klein got up from his courtside seat at Madison Square Garden and approached him. Then he grabbed Sprewell by the arm and struck up a conversation with him.

"I wasn't nervous," Sprewell said. "I was a little surprised, like, 'Is security going to come over here at some point or what?' I didn't know that was him."

Security did come over and ushered the 60-year-old designer back to his seat. After he sat back down, he yelled, "Sprewell!"

Representatives for Klein did not immediately return calls for comment Tuesday.

Sprewell declined to divulge what Klein said to him. The Knicks defeated the Raptors 100-90.

Totally bizarre.

Interesting to note that CK was simply removed to his seat after the incident; had that been me or any other normal schmo, we would've been handcuffed, dragged out forcibly and hit with charges. Wow. The power of fame in America.

Meanwhile, wonder what Mr. CK'd been smoking?

The guy in front of him leading him away looks like he could be Subway Jared's light-haired brother at first glance.

ANYWAY... only in NYC.

How bizarre.

The ref is laughing, one of the security guards is laughing, but it's the smirk on Spreewell's face that has me laughing.

He thought he was on the catwalk modelling for CK's latest jeans.

Sprewell: Hey girly boy, get off the court
CK: Hey bad boy, jourdache' sticks out when you where those gay shorts.

Hey...it could have happened.
