The Sprewell Suspension

Latrell Sprewell of the NBA's Golden State Warriors was recently suspended for one year after choking verbally abusive coach P.J. Carlesimo during a team practice. Some are calling the suspension too harsh. What do you think?
  • "I don't know what I'd do if a coach criticized my dribbling. I'd probably stab him to death."

    Randall Keyes Bank Teller
  • "Suspending Sprewell is not enough. Carlesimo should be awarded two free throws and the ball."

    Ken LaBranca Gardener
  • "I think it's obvious what happened. Carlesimo must have foolishly asked Sprewell to make believe he had called without using 1-800-COLLECT."

    Eileen Colangelo Systems Analyst
  • "Why didn't Sprewell just go out and beat up someone smaller and weaker than him? That's what I used to do when I was on the high-school wrestling team."

    Stephen Utter Data Technician
  • "I once got chewed out by my coach for not doing lay-ups right. But then I calmed down by masturbating in the locker-room shower."

    Todd Worth Waiter
  • "One good thing about this incident is the fact that, although a black player assaulted a white coach, nobody has blown it into an explosive, racially polarized powder keg. Allow me to be the first."
