Latrell Sprewell, Warriors
Two years after punching and threatening to hold a gun to a teammate, Sprewell went off on P.J. Carlesimo after the Warriors' coach yelled at Sprewell to improve his passing during practice. The four-time All-Star, in no mood for criticism, threatened to kill Carlesimo before choking him and dragging him to the ground. In response, the Warriors voided the remainder of his contract, but on appeal, Sprewell had the voiding overturned and the suspension reduced to 68 games.
