It’s almost hard to be happy when bad things happen to bad people. Almost.
Latrell Sprewell, of course, turned down a three-year, $21 million contract extension with the Minnesota Timberwolves, issuing the instantly classic quote, which will forever be associated with the current era of unsurpassed NBA greed:
"I've got my family to feed."
That quote alone destroyed Sprewell’s chances to ever join another NBA franchise. Believe it or not, fans have shown they simply will not allow someone with an attitude like that on the team they support.
The recent wave of unemployed former MLB superstars proves that professional sports ownership is starting to listen to you, the fan.
As for Sprewell…what goes around, comes around, dude. We can’t wait until he starts to whine about how he is ‘blackballed’ from the NBA.
