Found August 23, 2013 on BlackSportsOnline:
Larry Sanders just signed a new four-year $44 million deal earlier this week, and as Biggie said it best, “Mo Money, Mo Problems.” During the playoffs last season Sanders and former Bucks’ guard Monta Ellis almost came to blows, because he felt veteran Bucks players were extremely selfish, aka, Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings. Reportedly one of the reasons Sanders calling Ellis out didn’t go over well was because according to former Bucks assistant coach Anthony Goldwire, Sanders himself had a reputation “for not playing hard all the time.” Goldwire was speaking with Talkinhoopz.com when he ripped Sanders. “Last year, and the year before that, Larry didn’t come to play every night, some nights he took off. Some guys felt like he didn’t have the right to speak. Now, once you get in the playoffs, now you fell like you want to talk.” Goldwire basically blasted the new face of the Milwaukee Bucks.
