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?

Chris Henry’s Fiance Speaks Out On His Death/Funeral Coverage

Chris Henry’s fiance Loleini (Leini) Tonga was interviewed by ESPN recently where she broke her silence and spoke about his death.  I dunno ppl…  There still seems to be a lot of unanswered questions about what took place that night.  How come no one talked about Chris’ arm being in a sling or cast that night?  And if not, why did a witness report that initially?  Plus nothing seems to make any sense.  Thoughts?  In case you missed it, check out the funeral coverage below:

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.

NFL Player Chris Henry Dies/Was It Suicide?/Ocho Cinco Reacts

Chris Henry of the Cincinnati Bengals passed away Thursday morning after falling from the back of a pickup truck driven by his fiancee Loleini Tonga.  Witnesses say Chris was in the back of the pickup banging the windows and the roof of the vehicle.  They said he was yelling, “We need to talk”, and “If you take off, I’m going to jump off the truck and kill myself”.

Now, one has to ask the question, why didn’t his fiancee just stop?  Or did Chris jump from the moving pickup?  Either way, the story is too sad.

Here’s how fellow teammate Ocho Cinco reacted below:
