Profile Bio Text
Latrell Fontaine Sprewell (born September 8, 1970 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin) is an American former professional basketball player. During his time as a professional, Sprewell was named to the NBA All-Star game during four seasons, and played for the Golden State Warriors, the New York Knicks, and the Minnesota Timberwolves. He helped lead the Knicks to the NBA Finals and the Timberwolves to the Western Conference finals. Despite his accomplishments, his career was largely overshadowed by a 1997 incident in which he choked his coach, P.J. Carlesimo, during a practice, which ultimately resulted in a 68-game suspension. A 6`5" (1.96 m) guard/forward, Sprewell was known for his fastbreak two-handed tomahawk dunks. Sprewell`s career came to an unexpected ending when he refused a $21-million three-year contract offer from the Timberwolves, and no other teams in the league were able to come to terms with him.
