Latrell Sprewell - Latrell recently guest-starred in a linguistics textbook, although through no choice of his own. He has lost his house to foreclosure, his yacht was repossessed due to unpaid debts, and he no longer has access to the children he sought to feed. It is no longer known what he does with his time. But it is known that he never played professional basketball again.

- Latrell SprewellWe'll start by confirming the obvious; Sprewell has not played since his Timberwolves days. If he had done, that would be one of the transactions you'd have heard about without needing my support.
Since that time, Sprewell has made the news for four reasons; a foreclosure on his yacht, a foreclosure on his home, an alleged assault on his girlfriend, and a foreclosure on his other home. The yacht's gone, Spree paid the debt on the first home, and the assault charge was dropped 14 months later. But as for the second home foreclosure, on a $2.3 million home in the wonderfully named town of Purchase, Sprewell lost that in November. This was also the last time he made the news.
It's quite the depressing story of yet another athlete who burned it all away. Then again, as I sit here on my bed at 8.32am staring down the barrel of a long morning of essay writing, I find it slightly unfounded for me to be criticising a man for spending millions of dollars on twenty years of (presumably) wall to wall high living that I can only dream of. He may have lost all his money, but he probably had a crapload of fun doing it, so that's something.
That said, there's still jokes to be had at Sprewell's expense. Here is Latrell feeding his family:
