The legend of Latrine Sprewell grows: Dude is building up a Tyson-esque resume. Excellent timing considering the current public image of the NBA.

Does anyone know what he said?

I would imagine it rhymes with 'sprunt'.

Well, yeah ... but what if she was being one? Yes, I went there ...

Oh great, just what we needed sometimes I ask myself when is the NBA going to apply a more intense sensitivity training to these players or is it that the situation between players and fans wich is doing nothing but degrading the sport will continue?, by the way Latrell is going to make $14.6 mill this year and he is talking about needing money to feed his family to wich I aks, what the hell?

Sprewell yelled "suck my dick," according to a viewer who posted on Usenet.

that's it? considering the alternatives that went through his mind...things like choking her, etc...that almost seems restrained. Hey, a verbal assault is always better than a physical one, right?

what did she yell at him? let's hold her accountable.

She said that he allows more unopposed penetrations than Paris Hilton.

Word to Spree: never say "suck my dick" always say "fellate my member" its just more classy.

Upcoming NBA TV intro: Angle on Nicolette Sheridan. She is taunting Latrell Spreewel from the stands. Cut to Latrell. He has a murderous look on his face. He's about to reply in kind, but suddenly a friendly smile washes over his face and he just calls out, "Do you need a hug?" Cut to Nicolette. She exposes her right breast. Cue theme music. Cut to Bill Walton for pre-game analysis. Perfect.

Was it the woman who vomitted on his boat? If it was then I might have some sympathy. I just don't want to jump to conclusions here.

Hah! Simmons was there.

posted by dzot at 11:59 AM on December 08, 2004

Simmons just gets better and better.

Man, that guy is just such a fine, upstanding guy. I was so very disappointed when he left the warriors. What a loss.

I love it, "Suck Latrell Sprewell's (Expletive) Night. " Great stuff in Simmons. So , the woman just said he should watch his language cuz there are kids around. That definitely doesn't deserve the tongue lashing. What a (expletive)!

I'm Latrell Spreweel, bitch! Enjoy yourself!

That Simmons column is hilarious. "Fortunately, nothing else happened ... although I could have won a Pulitzer if Spree charged into my section to confront a female fan."

posted by rcade at 03:38 PM on December 08, 2004

It's a shame. It's like watching one of the guys from Phish playing in Ashlee Simpson's band. I hope to be Bill Simmons when I grow up.

posted by wfrazerjr at 04:40 PM on December 08, 2004

I like "Latrine." I might just call him that from here on in. And yeah, the fact that a writer as good as Bill Simmons has risen to the top of his field largely from inside the corporate sports media machine gives me a bit of pause.

"I think David Stern just threw up in his mouth." Now where were the TV cameras for this one? *falls on the flor*
