San Francisco U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker wants to fine NBA star Latrell Sprewell and his legal team for unlawyerlike conduct. Walker has slapped them with Rule 11 sanctions for filing a frivolous suit against the NBA. Last year, the former Golden State Warrior filed a discrimination suit against the league in the wake of a December 1997 incident in which he choked and threatened to kill his then-coach. He was suspended for a year, although an arbitrator later sharply reduced the penalty. Even so, Sprewell pressed his lawsuit, claiming he had been singled out for harsh treatment because of his race.
