Garry St. Jean finally got to talk
Monday as the Latrell Sprewell arbi

St Jean, who waited in Portland,
Ore., for two days last week but was
never called to testify, was among
the first to arrive for tire hearing - a
short walk from NBA headquarters.
Robin Baggett, Golden State
deputy counsel, also was scheduled
to give testimony Monday.
NBA Commissioner David
Stern and Warriors Coach P.J.
Carlesimo are expected to testify this

“Have a nice day,” was St Jean’s
only comment as he waited for an

of Fordham Law School, is running
His ruling, which is binding
under the collective bargaining^

Sprewell had the remaining three

Carlesimo at practice Dec. 1. The
suspension was the longest non-drug

about the events on the day of the
attack, as well as what happened in
the ensuing days.

for Sprewell was too harsh.

returning to the gym and punching
But Nee said Sprewell’s incident
isn’t an indication of the direction the
NBA or even college basketball is head
“It’s bad for the league and an
embarrassment,” Nee said. “But I don’t
think it is an indication of where it’s
going. Now it’s over, let’s move on.” ~
Nee, who has worked with
Carlesimo at different camps, said he
believes building communication and
trust as well as teaching and listening to
players helps to eliminateproblems
such as the Sprewell incident -
Nebraska sophomore guard Tyronn
Lue said he could see how Sprewell
snapped, but doesn’t believe he could
snap like that himself.
“Sometimes people get frustrated,”
Lue said “Frustration starts to set in and
i person can click at anytime.”

incident does highlight is the difFcutty a
