Where do I even begin with this guy?
In 1994, Sprewell's dog severely injured his daughter, and when asked about whether he'd give up the canine, he responded with: "Why would I do that?"
In 1995, he fought teammate Jerome Kersey and threatened to pull a gun on him.
In '97, Latrell Sprewell was asked by coach P.J. Carlesimo to put "a little more mustard on his passes," so Spree decided to take matters in his own hands, literally. He choked Carlesimo for about 10-to-15 seconds. Always a man to finish the job, Spree returned and gave poor old P.J. a punch before his teammates pulled him off the coach. He was consequently suspended for the following 68 games, but, more importantly, he was left off Kobe Bryant's NBA Courtside, which happened to be a certain six-year-old's favorite video game.
In 2004, as a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves, Spree was offered a three-year, $21 million extension, but apparently was insulted by it, stating: "I have a family to feed. If [Wolves owner] Glen Taylor wants to see my family fed, he better cough up some money. Otherwise, you're going to see these kids in one of those Sally Struthers commercials soon."
Why yes, he did just refer to starving children around the world.
What a jerk.
