Wasn't he an owner of the Sprewell Rim company that was responsible for the spinning wheels fad?

I guess he was rocking the middle east thing
where you have 20 plus kids with different women,

He turned Down 3 years,21 million

How many freaking mouths did he have to feed

Unless Ferrari,Rolls Royce,mansions,groupies
are considered things that need to be fed.

If only he was playing now 15-18 pts as a stretch 4 on 40% shooting,man
he would make JR Smiths contract offers where people are saying 8-10 mill look good in comparison.

Hibbert got MAX avg 14,9 on 45%
Asik got 15 mill avg 10,12
Chandler got 18 mill avg 12,10

Any decent,not good or great decent 8,8 40% fg
big is getting paid craploads

The Mavs offered Udonis Haslem 3 years 25 million
for avg 10,8
They gave Dampier 20 mill for 10,10

Nash got 27 mil for 3 years from the lakers avg
12,10

It seems like any player nowadays who can get you 10,8 is getting
8-15 million a year,its like a salary cap or common sense still isnt being taught.

He was a shooting guard not a stretch forward.

turned down a 21 million dollar contract because he had "kids to feed", and this in the last serviceable years of his career.

No team in their right mind would have paid him more than that so he just never got a deal and that was that.

His kids are starving but he got two mansions and a yacht...I don't like to judge but he was a Grade A idiot.

OP or anybody, have you ever seen the the article that quotes LS saying this?


Or is it hearsay from management of the Wolves?



Before Sprewell and Cassell came to Minn. to help KG.....Wolves weren't shit.....since they didn't sign Spree, they reverted back to not being shit.

Dwell on it.

Apparently, 21 million dollars over 3 years is not enough for some people.

It's a real quote after he turned down the 3 year, $21 million extension. Just google it.

And the Timberwolves didn't make the playoffs in the 04-05 season, which was Sprewell's final season there anyways. That roster with Cassell, Spree, and KG only had a limited window for a championship.
