MOVE OVER LATRELL SPREWELL

Former NBA player Renaldo Balkman chokes teammate in the Philippines
by Royce Young, cbssportsline.com

Former NBA player Renaldo Balkman, who now plays for the Petron Blaze Boosters of the Philippine Basketball Association, had a meltdown late in a game on Friday.

Balkman misfired on a shot in the paint in the final minute with the Boosters trailing by seven. The former Knicks and Nuggets forward appeared to be upset that no foul was called and started arguing with the referee. He then shoved one of his assistant coaches away before arguing with another official. When he started barking at a third ref, his teammates tried to intervene.

It went from bad to worse as Balkman started arguing with his fellow Boosters and pushing them away as well. After teammate Arwind Santos stood in his way and even pushed Balkman back, the 28-year-old put his hands around Santos' neck before finally getting pulled away.

Balkman apologized after the loss.

“I am a professional, I am not supposed to do that. I already apologized to Arwind (Santos), his family and my teammates, including our bosses," he said, via the team's official Facebook page. "Everybody does something once in a life, they’re not supposed to do At the time I blanked out and went at it. It’s my first time ever in my entire life to do that."

Balkman also apologized on Twitter.

Latrell's was a classic...............and in the limelight for everyone to see

Never, ever criticize someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes........for at that point they will be a mile away. And you'll have their shoes !
