DURST: Sprewell's Litigants

Latrell Sprewell, who was suspended by the NBA for 68 games for choking his coach like a circus chicken, is suing his agent Arn Tellem for failing to negotiate a salary protection clause in his contract with the Golden State Warriors. Apparently there was no clause calling for an annual psychiatric study either. Sprewell's lawyer said the shooting guard insists on this action partly because of the vast public ridicule he's received. My only thought here is he must have come to like it. And since my Brewtown homeboy obviously needs help, I thought I'd come up with a list of other potential litigants he can pursue in his quest for universal scorn.* Michael Jordan for setting an unachievable standard.* His parents for gifting him with hands that could wrap around a refrigerator.* His third grade gym teacher for not setting the same level of provocation PJ Carlesimo did.* Dick Armey for being so butt ugly.* His lawyer for not talking him out of suing everybody and his brother.* His lawyer's brother.* Tony Serra's brother for not talking him into taking his case.* The Warrior Girls for not being there to distract him.* Bill Clinton for just being, well... Bill.Will Durst has a sneaking suspicion Spree's lawyer dude is getting paid by the hour.
