    SPREWELL

    Read this!! If he doesn't want to play for a contender and can't feed his family on the 14.6 million, dump his ass. I like having Spree play for us but this is insulting. He must want KG to share some of his wealth.

    Article from Excite.com sports

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Latrell Sprewell says he'll ask to be traded if the Minnesota Timberwolves don't sign him to a contract extension by Wednesday night's opener.

    "I think this thing is heading towards me leaving, personally," Sprewell told reporters after practice Sunday.

    Earlier this preseason, Sprewell said he wanted a contract extension by the Wolves' Nov. 3 opener against the New York Knicks, or he would ask for a sign-and-trade deal or wait to become a free agent. Either way, Sprewell said he didn't want to negotiate during the season.

    But he took a tougher stance Sunday.

    Asked if he would play out the season and test the free-agent market, Sprewell said: "Why would I want to help them win a title? They're not doing anything for me. I'm at risk. I have a lot of risk here. I got my family to feed. Anything could happen."

    Neither Sprewell's agent, Robert Gist, nor Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor immediately returned phone messages left by The Associated Press on Monday.

    Sprewell, Sam Cassell and league MVP Kevin Garnett formed the NBA's highest scoring trio last year in leading the Wolves to the Western Conference finals. Sprewell averaged 16.8 points last season and is due to make $14.6 million this year.

    Sprewell has said he doesn't want to take a pay cut. But at 34, the Wolves could be hesitant to oblige. Sprewell described the team's latest offer, reported to be worth between $27 million and $30 million over three years, as "insulting."

    Truth is he is old and he should be glad to be playing for us and have a chance to win a title.

    Ship him back to the warriors if he doesn't like it. Then see how you feel about it. Or maybe an expansion team.

    I originally wanted to see him back but if he is going to be a distraction, get rid of him.

    I woulda never signed the punk to begin with. Sorry, TNT, I don't have much patience for the "New NBA". Give me five guys who can set picks, roll on defense, and pass five times before they shoot and I'm there cheering like crazy.
    Have you ever seen a race of turtles, and they all go the wrong way instead of towards the finish line?

    The guys on PTI and Around the horn trashed spree today.

    They had barkley on and he was like he is getting 14 mil now, I never got that when I played. He was almost insaulted that spree was getting paid that much. He said spree should be happy at his age just to get paid. SOmething like that.

    Tomorrow is the deadline! I just can't believe spree said"why would I want to win a championship for them" That just blows me away. I don't understand that attitude.

    I liked how he played last year. I would like his help this year but if he is going to be greedy of 2 or 3 MIL then send him packing.
