It’s been seven years since Latrell Sprewell left the NBA. I wonder what he has been up to…


From the Journal-Sentinel.

Milwaukee native and former NBA star Latrell Sprewell was arrested for disorderly conduct Monday afternoon after police received repeated complaints about loud music coming from a house on E. Pleasant St. on Milwaukee’s east side, according to jail records reviewed by the Journal Sentinel Tuesday.

Police would not release details of the incident other than to report that police had received two complaints within one hour Monday afternoon and had received several complaints of loud music from the residence in recent months.

He was booked at 4:15 p.m. New Year’s Eve, which is before most people had started to get in trouble that night. The report does not detail how a noise complaint escalated up to an arrest.

Don’t go expecting P.J. Carlesimo to give Sprewell one more chance with the Nets.

        Wonder if he choked a cop?

      he doesn’t have enough money to feed his kids but he can buy a stereo…………………..

      oh boy!!

      Hey Spree, call PJ, if you want to play ball.

    This from the man who refused a $21-million three-year contract offer from the Timberwolves in which he implied would not be enough to feed his children. He never played another game. PJ are you listening? You have got to have a smile on your face.

    There has got to be more to this than in this article, but suffice to say – what goes around comes around.

    how the hell is this even a story. once again the media jumps into any chance to embarrasse a man. now if Spree came to blkyn to stalk an possibly choke the crap out PJ,again well that would be worth reading about.

      The media doesn’t embarrass Sprewell. He does that with his own actions.

      This would be great….go to the game, get a good seat behind the Nets bench, perhaps wearing a fake moustache and trench coat.

      When the time is right, leap down, grab him around the neck and squeeze.

    Arrested on freakin’ New Years for……NOISE!?? On New Years! For noise??

    I hope those dang nieghbors of his have a horrible 2013!

    • 00maltliquor - Jan 2, 2013 at 12:47 PM

      Or better yet, I hope Andrew Bynum buys a summer home on that block!!

    if you guys could read it says later in the article that loud music for a couple of months

  7. bbk1000 - Jan 2, 2013 at 5:45 PM

    Not only was it New Years Eve he was booked at 4:15 pm….gimme a break.

    Man I hated this guy for the choking incident, but I loved him when he came to the Knicks. That whole “can’t feed his kids” thing though was just crazy. He obviously has something wrong with him or is just very immature.

    Whatever, I hope things work out well for him.
