With a career that had him labeled as one of the league’s bad boys, Sprewell’s on and off-court moves were ones for the record books. Latrell Sprewell was born on Sept. 8, 1970, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After playing high school basketball, he played with Three Rivers Community College for two years. After his community college career, he went to play for two years with the University of Alabama. In 1992, the Golden State Warriors selected him as the No. 24 draft pick. In the early part of his career, Sprewell worked hard on his skills and eventually became the leading scorer for the Western Conference All-Star team from 1994-1997. However, his personal antics would begin to overshadow his athletic ability. Regardless of this, Sprewell would remain one of the most touted NBA players in the league.

The achievements put him up there with the greats that the league’s court has ever seen and transformed the Warriors into a super-team. The Golden State Warriors took early notice of what he brought to the franchise — prior to the aforementioned acclaimed success — in 2012 with a four-year, $44 million extension. According to Insider, although others thought the deal was far from reflecting his foreshadowed worth, in Curry’s eyes, it was “maybe the most favorable in NBA history.”
