Default Latrell Spreewell: NBA comeback?

[edit] Possible NBA Return?
As of August 2007, many people have speculated a possible NBA return for Sprewell amidst talks of Allan Houston, Reggie Miller, and Penny Hardaway's pending or imminent NBA comebacks (though Reggie Miller has since stated he no longer anticipates a comeback at age 42). Sprewell's personal life since he last played in the NBA has been plagued with controversy and, as some have even speculated, financial trouble.

On August 30, 2006 Milwaukee police investigated a claim by a 21-year-old female whom claimed that she and Sprewell were having consensual sex aboard his yacht, "Milwaukee's Best," when Sprewell began to strangle her. Police allegedly observed red marks on the woman's neck. Police investigating the allegation searched Sprewell's yacht for evidence.[2]

On September 6, 2006 police indicated that Latrell Sprewell would not face any charges from the alleged incident in which a woman accused him of choking her against her will while they had sex on his boat in Lake Michigan in August 2006. Sprewell is seeking a restraining order against the woman along with "civil remedies" against the 21-year-old accuser.[3]

On January 31, 2007 Sprewell's long term companion sued him for 200 million dollars for ending their relationship agreement. She claims Sprewell agreed to support her and their four children since they were in college.[4]

On August 22nd, 2007, it was reported by multiple news agencies that Latrell Sprewell's 70-foot yacht, named "Milwaukee's Best," was repossessed by federal marshals after Sprewell failed to maintain payments and insurance for the vessel, for which he reportedly still owed approximately $1.3 million USD.[5] In addition, while piloted by Sprewell, the yacht was run ashore near Atwater Beach, just north of Milwaukee, and required a tug boat to free the vessel.

Others have speculated that Sprewell may have been quietly considering a comeback but has not received an offer for the level of compensation that he feels would be adequate to bring him out of retirement.[6] Furthermore, on December 19, 2006, Troy Hudson, Kevin Garnett and Trenton Hassell met for dinner after which Troy Hudson was quoted as saying that "(Sprewell) looks like he could play 48 minutes right now," and "he just said he's enjoying his time off," which may suggest he is not retired but taking a break from the NBA.[7] As of late 2007, it is not known whether Sprewell will attempt an NBA comeback.
All I remember Spree for, really is when he tried to kill his coach lol.
