Latrell Sprewell Victimized Again!

NBA baller Latrell Sprewell just had his house foreclosed (his boat too!)

This is the same Moron who choked and swung at his coach in 1997, meriting a year-long suspension. (without pay!)

Then, as Wikipedia tells the tale:

On October 31, 2004, the Minnesota Timberwolves offered Sprewell a 3-year, $21 million contract extension, substantially less than what his then-current contract paid him. Insulted, he publicly vented his outrage, declaring, "I have a family to feed."

After turning down that insulting offer, he never earned another penny in the league.

I wonder how many former pro-athletes are positively broke?

I am guessing that it's around 70% of the lot.
