Celebrities - Latrell Sprewell

Latrell Fontaine Sprewell (born September 8, 1970 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin) is a former American professional basketball player who last played for the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 2004-05 NBA season. Along with Sam Cassell, Sprewell helped Kevin Garnett and the Timberwolves make a run to the West Conference finals in 2003-2004. A 6'5" (1.96 m) guard/forward, Sprewell is perhaps best known for choking P.J. Carlesimo, his then-coach with the Golden State Warriors. For this action, Sprewell was suspended for 68 games. He was an effective player on the court, making four All-Star teams while assisting the New York Knicks to the 1999 NBA Finals following his return to the league.

1 Nope, they definitely defended the coach choking by portraying SPREWELL as the victim. They also did the same thing with Todd Bertuzzi. Remember him? I think that might've been the proverbial Last Straw for me that resulted in canceling my subscription. In other words, it was a personal BTF moment for me as far as SI was concerned. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on March 4, 2010, 5:35 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Please tell me you are talking about the "Family to feed" situation, and not the "Coach choking" situation -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on March 2, 2010, 12:46 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 What was even worse is that SI (which I subscribed to at the time but don't anymore thank goodness) actually DEFENDED Sprewell and strongly hinted that anyone who was upset at him or the situation was a racist! I kid you not. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on March 1, 2010, 8:13 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Turning down $21 Mil because you have a family to feed? No wonder people hate pro sports today. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on February 23, 2010, 3:37 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
