Latrell Sprewell was born on September 8, 1970. He is an American former basketball player. He played for many teams and earned many honors during his career. Latrell played for the New York Knicks, Golden State Warriors, and the Minnesota Timberwolves. During his time as a player, Sprewell was named NBA All-Star game yearly for four times; he also led and helped the Knicks reach the Finals of NBA and the Timberwolves the Western Conference finals. Despite his achievements, his career faced a downfall due to a 1997 incident in which he choked coach P. J. Carlesimo during a practice, which eventually resulted in a suspension for 68 games.
Sprewell’s career came to a surprising end in 2005 when he declined a $21-million 3 year contract offer from the Timberwolves, which Sprewell implied would not be enough to nurse his children. The earning was not enough for his family. The Timberwolves offered not more than that. Since that time, he has made news for grounding his million-dollar ship and subsequently having it reclaimed for missed payments, having two of his homes shut down, and being forbidden from seeing his children.
In March 2006, Sprewell was offered contracts by the San Antonio Spurs and Dallas Mavericks. At that time both the teams were considered strong contenders to win the NBA Championship, but Sprewell declined the offers of the two and remained a free agent as the season came to an end. There was also negligible interest in Sprewell by the Los Angeles Lakers at the start of the 2005–06 seasons but no result came out of it. IN 2006, 21-year-old female claimed that while having sex with Latrell on his yacht, Latrell strangled her. Police observed red marks on her neck and began to search for the evidence. Later, he was released from any kind of charge.
In his overall career of 10 years, Sprewell played 868 of 913 games, averaging 4.2 apg, 18.8 ppg, and 4.1 rpg with playoff career averages of 3.4 apg, 19.7 ppg, and 4.3 rpg. Sprewell was named to the All-NBA First Team at the end of his second season, and to the All-NBA Defensive second team that same year.
In 1994, a four-year-old daughter of Sprewell was attacked by his dog pit bull, getting bites to her nose, lips, ear, and forehead. She underwent surgery.
