    Former professional basketball star Latrell Sprewell's 70-foot, $1.5 million, Italian-built yacht repossessed Tuesday. Armed with an order from U.S. Magistrate Judge William E. Callahan Jr., a federal marshal seized the vessel in Manitowoc, where it sat in storage.

    What's the deal with the ad at the top of the page on the link saying I can get a '57 Braves nesting doll set at 1:05 p.m. Sunday 9/2? What the hell is a nesting doll set?

    How can they do that? The man's got a family to feed!

    As far as the story, that lead is hysterical:

    When a man has to think about putting food on the table, it can be difficult to keep a yacht.

    They're wooden figures that fit inside one another. Here's a Kiss nesting doll set:

    I guess he wasn't kidding when he said he really needed the money.

    Bought the yacht for $1.5 million in 2003 and still owes $1.3 million. That's awesome. Wonder if tried hiding the yacht in the garage or behind the house like other deadbeats do when they know that the repo man is coming...

    the best part of this whole thing is that he never got another contract after turning down the 'insulting' offer. i love, love, love when people have to face consequences for their stupid decisions.

    They originated in Russia where they're called matryoshkas but I don't think they had Kiss in mind. :)
