Gilbert Arenas Pulls Gun On Teammate?

An NY Post reporter says that Gilbert Arenas and Wizards teammate Javaris Crittenton pulled out guns on each other during a locker room confrontation Christmas Eve.  The word is that it’s all over a gambling debt and Javaris owes Gilbert money.  Is this the real reason why Gilbert got in trouble for bringing a gun into the locker room last month?  Plus his fiance/baby mama was supposedly caught cheating with Shaq?

Peep this:

League sources say the pistol-packing point guards had heaters at the ready inside the Verizon Center, the Washington, DC, home of the Wizards — whose name was changed from the Bullets over gun- violence concerns. It was the three- time all-star Arenas, 27, who went for his gun first, sources said, draw ing on the 22-year-old Crit tenton, who quickly brandished a firearm as well. It was not clear whether other teammates saw the shocking standoff, which happened on a practice day. The duel in DC — unprecedented in sports history — was sparked when Crittenton became enraged at the vet eran guard for refusing to make good on a gambling debt, a source said. “I’m not your punk!” Crittenton shouted at Arenas, according to a league source close to the Wizards. That prompted Arenas to draw on Crittenton, who then also grabbed for a gun, league security sources said. A playground pal of Crittenton’s from Atlanta, Kendrick “Bookie Ball” Long, confirmed the locker-room standoff and said he learned of it directly from the third-year player out of Georgia Tech. “He [Arenas] was f- – -ing with him; he [Crittenton] was just defending himself!” declared Long, who said the dispute was over money but would not elaborate.

  1. Pretty funny stuff. It’s an unprecedented kind of event within sports. I wonder if there will be any criminal charges coming from it. It’s funny that Gilbert would pull a gun on a gambling debt considering he’s in the midst of a $111 million deal… Check out our blog http://doin-work.com

      I agree. It doesn’t make sense. Maybe there’s more to it than Arenas and the NBA would like us to believe or not. We’ll just have to wait and see I guess. Nice website btw 🙂

  2. Arenas is throwing his career away. In an article today on ESPN.com, Jemele Jill suggests three different ways in dealing with this situation:

    1. Arenas and Crittenton should be suspended for the rest of this season.

    2. The Wizards should use the morality clause to void the rest of Arenas’ $111 million contract, which after this season will tally $78 million.

    3. The Wizards should be fined considerably — I’m thinking a high six figures — for even allowing Arenas to store his guns at a public arena and league facility, regardless of whether the guns were kept in a locked area. Bringing a gun inside a NBA facility is prohibited.

    All three options are pretty grim considering the Wizards are hovering near the bottom of the East.
