Bucks’ Larry Sanders and Gary Neal get into heated locker room argument


The Milwaukee Bucks lost 116-100 to the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night. The Bucks have had a rough season so far, their 7-26 record is the worst in the league.

That has led to some friction between teammates. In the locker room, Larry Sanders and Gary Neal were arguing with one another even after reporters were allowed to enter.

From beat writer Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

Reporters were asked by players to leave but the argument continued and Neal left shouting, “I earned my money. Why don’t you try it?”

Sanders earlier could be heard questioning Neal’s attitude.

But Sanders said he would not comment about the argument and said simply, “I had a bad game.”

From ESPN:

[O.J.] Mayo called the run-in “a little Kumbaya moment.”

“It is team bonding,” he said. “There are different ways you go about it. It is an emotional roller coaster. When things aren’t going well, that is when the real men reveal their true colors.”

Sanders had seven points in 26 minutes. He also had two rebounds and one block. Neal on the other hand scored 9 points in 18 minutes with one rebound and one assist.
