America loves redemption.: But is Spree-demption finished?

PJ was an asshole that deserved what he got from Sprewell, and I think the Knicks are pushing it by banning him, but that's just my humble opinion.

One can only hope. But it'll go to arbitration and his fine will be cut by some outrageous percentage. PJ was an asshole that deserved what he got from Sprewell Do you really mean he deserved to be choked? I don't care what flavor of asshole he was, no one deserves that.

The idea of flavored assholes is truly horrifying. Thanks a lot, jmpeterson.

I've always thought that Sprewell should have been charged with assault and done jail time for choking Carlesimo.

Do you really mean he deserved to be choked? Yes. Now let me explain, I played D-1 college sports, and PJ had a reputation for being a total dick, PJ was known for saying check your manhood at the door, and he rode players to no end, and when they lost would always blame the players for not executing his brilliant system. Eventually people were going to get tired of this, and Sprewell did, sometimes a person needs to be smacked(or in this case choked), and I think Sprewell did what had to be done. Of course I could be bitter because I never got to smack my coach.

The New York Post reported that.... Ya know, Spree has his issues, but I have to question anything the NYPost reports. It is hardly an investigative news source. Remember, this is the same news source (not the same reporter though) that lit the flame about Mike Piazza's sexual orientation. Total troll, or at least, a flame bait newspaper. There is, of course, the fact that Spree has a heck of a temper. hmmmm
