Smile Latrell Sprewell, you are finally free.

“I’m at risk. I have a lot of risk here. I got my family to feed.” 

Those were Sprewell’s infamous remarks to the Free Republic in 2004 as he tried to explain why he turned down a 3-year, $30 million deal. Oh, and Sprewell had never made anything close to $97 million in his career.

Newly signed Los Angeles Clippers forward Josh Smith has made that amount, yet he believes taking a mid-level $6.9 million this season from his new employers will be hard for his family to deal with.

“At the end of the day, you know, I do have a family,” he said, per the Huffington Post. “So it is going to be a little harder on me this year. But I’m going to push through it, you know.”

I mean, the Los Angeles real estate can be crazy, but come on Josh. $6.9 million alone wouldn’t be hard, but you got millions in the bank as well.

Not "smooth" at all Josh.
