Latrell Sprewell Visits Saratoga
Prince Marketing Group brought former New York Knicks forward Latrell Sprewell to Saratoga Stadium sports bar on Saturday, Feburary 17, 2018, signing autographs and talking to fans.
“Spree” spent five seasons in the big apple and was part of a magical run to the Eastern Conference Finals in 1999. Additionally, “Spree” played with the Golden State Warriors and Minnesota Timberwolves. The first round pick out of Alabama was a four time All-Star and scored over 16,000 points.
Sprewell appreciated all the love he got from New York fans today.
“Well it’s definitely an appreciation for all the hard work I did that I put in when I was here with the Knicks and like I said out of all the teams I played for I had a lot of fun but the New York fan base is like no other. I don’t think there’s another team in the NBA that has a fan base quite like the Knicks do,” Sprewell said.
Sprewell, originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was picked twenty-fourth in round one in the NBA draft by the Golden State Warriors, where he played shooting guard and small forward. After six years with the Golden State Warriors, Sprewell began playing with the New York Knicks from 1998-2003, ending his career with a two-year stint with the Minnesota Timberwolves from 2003-2005. In his career, Sprewell racked up 16,712 points, 3,664 assists, and 1,294 steals. He is a four-time NBA All-Star (1994, 1995, 1997, 2001), All-NBA First Team (1994), NBA All-Defensive Second Team (1994), and NBA All-Rookie Second Team (1993).
