The players' association , will file a formal grievance in ; ; 20 days. ; : The incident also, brought comment from thei; political arena.

Asked if he thought the league had been behind the turn of events, agent Arn Tellem said: "My guess is yes, they did, because the Warriors changed their position so abruptly. "It was strictly an internal matter and it wasn't a league issue," Tellem said Friday. "When the Warriors made their initial reaction of a 10-game suspension and $1 million in lost salary, we were prepared to live with it and accept it. Then, all of a sudden, everything changed abruptly." Sprewell received the longest suspension in NBA history Thursday when the league banned him for one calendar year for attacking coach PJ.
