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.
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]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.
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.

Nice player - not a bright guy imo . Turn down 7mil a year on the downside of your career
i was half expecting drug and fire-arm charges, not sure how "he was allegedly playing his music too loud" is so sad
I guess he got mad when he found out that PJ Carlesimo became a head coach again.
Humility is a virtue and pride is a vice.
How is his life sad?? He got arrested for loud music and perhaps mouthing off to the cops. Other than that, what other stuff has he been through post-NBA that's been sad? Not ike he's broke on some MIL street corner or becoming a joke on some reality show.
