Latrell Sprewell answered his front door with his face contorted into his unmistakable scowl, his anger barely under control as he made it clear he was not accepting visitors and was in no mood to talk.
"Get off my property right now or I'll send someone out there to take your head off!"
This is interesting to say the least.

Watch out for the dogs," a Bucks scout had warned.


But judging by Sprewell's demeanor and his growl, the biggest threat to life and limb was standing on two legs, not four. Good luck to the next Jehovah's Witness who tries to engage him in a friendly discussion of the Bible.


"I have no idea what's driving Latrell. I can't figure it out, and he doesn't articulate what he's thinking," said Robert Gist, Sprewell's longtime agent.
:rofl:

All about pride. If he didn't make that stupid "family to feed" comment he would be playing basketball now. It's a shame. He knows it was a dumb thing to say and now he doesn't want to be lambasted for playing for $20 million less than he was offered then.

The bottom line is if he loved the sport and wanted to try and win a ring he should just say that's what he wants to play for. People would respect that. Wanting to play for love and glory far out weighs the negative monetary comment he made.

Before he knows it he won't be able to play anymore.
