After making some calls on Sprewell that day, he’d wind up with something far more significant than trade news, and arguably the biggest scoop of his career. A source in the league office didn’t have a specific answer for Vecsey, but told him that there was “something happening out there” and urged him to check it out. Vecsey says he phoned up an ex-Warriors player – obviously, he won’t say who – that then called someone from the team. After hearing about how Sprewell had choked his head coach P.J. Carlesimo during practice, the source swiftly relayed the whole story back to Vecsey. This was about 7 pm. “I believed him, obviously,” Vecsey tells me, over a recent dinner in Manhattan. “He told me the whole story, and we go with it. Within an hour. We put that together in an hour.”

Officially reintroducing the Marbury Mid is Charlotte Hornets guard Lance Stephenson, who’s been playing in the original White/Navy colorway. Last October, Stephenson told us that the Marbury was one of the AND1 shoes he wanted to see retroed. “I want the Sprewells to come back out. I want the Stephon Marburys to come back out,” said Stephenson. “I try to tell them give me all of them in different colorways.”
DS: You know, over the years, we were working on so many different — you mean, when we were working with Magic Johnson and HIV, or dealing with Latrell Sprewell and the thing with his coach? We were dealing with Ron Artest going into the stands, we were dealing with [Tim] Donaghy, we were dealing with Gilbert Arenas. We were dealing with subsequent lockouts. We managed to keep very, very busy — like, Holy Moses, what’s up today? What’s on the table? And so, for us, there was a lot to do. Me: Is $2 billion for the Clippers an outlier? DS: Oh, no, I don’t think it’s an outlier at all. I think it values one of the markets with the highest television revenue locally. It values the opportunity, the sponsorships, the ticket prices, the building, in a spectacular way. And well deserved.
Former Knicks guard/forward Latrell Sprewell might be best known for his famous “I got my family to feed” quote or that he choked then-Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo. Now, according to Rumorsandrants.com blogger Ryan Phillips, he might additionally be known for threatening fans who take cell phone photos at bars. Phillips wrote about going to a Milwaukee bar earlier this week and seeing Sprewell “talking up the ladies that were surrounding him.” He snapped a shot with his phone to send to a friend, but looked up to see the ex-Knicks star telling him to “delete that [expletive].”
Who was the toughest player for you to guard during your career? DA: There was a couple. When I played it was tough. I was a tough guard but think about it, you had these shooting guards: Michael Jordan, Reggie Miller, Mitch Richmond, Latrell Sprewell, Allan Houston, Steve Smith, JR Rider… Just naming those guys, you knew you had a tough night every night and if you watched on TV you said ‘Man, this is a great game!’ Now you can’t name me five apart from Kobe [Bryant], [James] Harden and maybe Joe Johnson… It was fun back then. Mario Elie, Allen Iverson was a two-guard back then… There was a bunch of talent. Now? There’s nothing.
