NBA Fire in Lieu of the Lockout, Part 14: SPREEEEEEEE

Point blank, this dude was sick. Sure he choked out his coach, but let's be honest, who doesn't want to physically assault their boss every now and then? Spree was just doing what others are scared to.

Spree (pictured way left) played on some of the most entertaining teams of the '90s; including the upstart Warriors where he teamed with Chris Webber, Chris Mullin and Tim Hardaway. After being suspended for a record 68 games, Sprewell was traded to the Knicks where he was the missing link and put them over the hump and provided some great entertainment at the Garden.

An elite scorer, he was one of the most explosive players in the league and didn't think twice about dunking on someone's head. Sprewell led the Knicks to a surprising '99 Finals berth were they eventually fell to the Spurs.
