    Default Spree still going hard.

    According to The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, former Knick Latrell Sprewell was arrested on New Year's Eve for disorderly conduct -- he was allegedly playing his music too loud.

    The newspaper reports that police received two complaints about the music within an hour Monday afternoon, and had received prior complaints in recent months. No other details were available.

    Sprewell played for the Knicks from 1998 to 2003. He is perhaps best-known for choking current Nets interim coach P.J. Carlesimo at a practice in 1997, which led to a 68-game suspension.

    Real sad to see how the rest of his life is playing out.

    Spree's a mess. To this day I can't believe he turned down that, what was it, $21M contract? Electrifying baller, but a complete misfit.

    Based on where he was in his career and his age, it was a pretty fair if not slightly generous deal. Shame we traded him, I love the fact that he was a shot jacker but could play Jordan level defense on his night.

    I love him, but don't understand a lot of his decisions. His reason for turning down the money seems like a big joke he planned, but some other things that went down after his career makes it's hard to not believe it was legit.

    Still one of my favorite Knicks.

    Sprewell did alot for the poor, its a damn shame that hes viewed in such a negative light by most basketball fans. Any basketball player with ties to the hip hop culture never get the benefit of the doubt. Ask Sprewell, Carmelo, Starbury, Iverson, etc.

    We saw how hard the media was on Carmelo last year and over the offseason, and there was no need for it. They've been much easier on Deron Williams, a player who went out of his way to make it clear he wants nothing to do with the stereotypes that come along with being affiliated with the hip hop culture. He once corrected a reporter saying his name is pronounced "Derin" as opposed to "Deron"

    Yeah. Isn't it ironic how people view the goverment and business people corrupt, egostical, and slimey in their business suits and all, but people who have ties to the hip hop culture are considered no good for just the way they dress.

    Great post, repped. This thread wasn't started to bash Spree, just sad to see all the negativity following him and some poor decisions not letting him catch a break. Was not aware of all the stuff Spree had done.
