Career Years: 1992-2005
Career Lowlight: Chokes coach PJ Carlesimo in 1997.
Sprewell was an All-Star who was also the poster child for the selfish, borderline-insane NBA of the late 1990s that drove away numerous fans and made many games nearly unwatchable in the post-Jordan era. In 1997, Sprewell decided that the best way to settle a disagreement at practice with coach PJ Carlesimo was to throttle the life out of him. When that didn't work, he threatened to kill him. In 2004, Sprewell would spurn a three-year, $21 million contract offer from the Minnesota Timberwolves by declaring that "I have a family to feed," which begs the question: what was he feeding them that $21 million couldn't take care of? Now he's broke. #karmasthebaddestbitch
