Never Forget Latrell Sprewell

From the New Yorker:

He had a Afro, was wire thin, and didn’t so much dunk the ball as attack the rim like some kind of velociraptor who wanted to tear it off and take it elsewhere to eat. I imagined him cackling as he ran back on defense. It was a bit frightening.

This tribute to Latrell Sprewell is fantastic for a lot of reasons, but most basically, it's great because we forget about his best years way too often. Everyone remembers the choking incident that terrified middle America at the turn of the century, but remember how awesome he was with the Knicks in the '99 playoffs?

THAT was some truly terrifying s**t.
