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"
Yet another article that exposes the envy people so blindly have for successful urbanites. With all the good he has done on and off the court it seems to me envious people always find a way to high lite minor nonsense, as if some sought of terrorist act was committed ( an act that everyday people do consistently), and all this without accrediting him for his major positive contributions. The funny thing about it all is that most of the haters donít even know about his many positive deeds. Misrepresentation, and blatant deformation of character has always been an issue, but this sought of trivial BS accompanied with ignorance can sometimes be intolerable. Piss off beyotchs
