    Another sad story of a former NBA player falling on hard times. I kind of choked up a bit when I read that article.

    Common guys, this is serious. We're talking about someones life here. Show some class. Put yourself in Latrell's really expensive almost paid for shoes for a second. How would you like to be forced to downsize from a 70'er to a 35'er? That's like cutting your boat in half.

    It's not to late. The article says that Spree still owes $1.3 million on the yacht. There are 1,238 members on PF.com. If we all chip in a mere $1050 each, we can feed the man's family!... er.... I mean, save his really big boat!

    So, right here, right now, I'm starting the Save Spree's Really Big Boat Fund. Who's with me?

    Well, I'm with you but I think some of the rich guys like Roscoe should chip in more.

    I will go out on a limb and say you forgot the decimal point between the 10 and 50, if so, I`m in!!!!!!!!!

    Good point.

    Excellent, so it's settled then. We'll each pay $10.50 and Roscoe will pick up the remaining $1,287,001.

    Don't worry Latrell, help is on the way!

    How about some creative names for what he should have named his boat(instead of Milwaukee's Best)?

    I just had a thought. Maybe Spreewell isn't a jerk after all.

    We all know that he took a lot of heat after his "I have a family to feed" line. But maybe he was speaking literally. I'm assuming his 70' yacht has a kitchen. If they take away his boat (and kitchen), he literally wouldn't be able to feed his family.

    Hahaha nice one.

    Or maybe, "The Throatler" or "Full Throattle" or "A Family".

    Ol' Sandwich's a miser my friend. He's not rich, he just gets by with spending less. :)

    Maybe Spree should have had that attitude and bought a yacht that was on sale.

    Microwave-economics lean heavily on the Ferengi Rules of Acquisition.

    #141 - Only fools pay retail.

    #3 - Never pay more for an acquisition than you have to.

    He could sell his house and just PARK THE YACHT ON A LOT......and just live in it. He could pay off the boat with the sale of his home. It could really be a "mobile home"..........
    Just name it the "Minnow" .......Gilligan...........
