Gilbert Arenas Puts Away The Arms & Bares His Chest/Suspension Update

In case you missed the latest happenings on Gilbert Arenas’ woes and new Peta Ad, NBA commissioner David Stern suspended Arenas indefinitely without pay.  Arenas was recently photographed on Tuesday pointing his index fingers in the form of guns at teammates during a pre-game.  Not a good thing  to do considering he was already under investigation by authorities for bring guns into the locker room.

David Stern, felt that Arenas’ behavior made him “not currently fit to take the court.”  Stern warned Arenas that his actions will “ultimately result in a substantial suspension, and perhaps worse.”

Originally Arenas said that he brought the four guns to the Verizon Center because he wanted to keep his home safe after his daughter was born.  But two NBA officials told The Associated Press that the incident was about a dispute over card-playing gambling debts involving Arenas and Crittenton which ended in the pulling of the guns.

Arenas said he took out the unloaded guns from his locker in a “misguided effort to play a joke” on a teammate.  He added:

“Joke or not, I now recognize that what I did was a mistake and was wrong,” Arenas said. “I should not have brought the guns to DC in the first place, and I now realize that there’s no such thing as joking around when it comes to guns — even if unloaded.”

So to conclude this story for now guns suck.  Take it from Gilbert Arenas.

Gilbert Arenas Speaks On His Pistol Packin Action

Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas spoke up about the drawing of the guns with teammate Javaris Crittenton.  “It was bad judgment, having the weapons here,” Arenas said. “It was bad judgment, and I’ll deal with that.”

Arenas claims he stored unloaded firearms in his locker to keep them away from his newborn child and believed it was better than just throwing them away.  Upon meeting with law enforcement on Monday, Arenas issued this statement:

“I am very sorry for the effect that my serious lapse in judgment has had on my team, my teammates, the National Basketball Association and its fans. I want to apologize to everybody for letting them down with my conduct, and I promise to do better in the future.”

Arenas is facing suspension and assault with carrying a pistol without a license charges.  So where does Javaris fit in all this?  Thoughts?

RIP Chris Henry.

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.
