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.

Marbury Joins Boston Celtics


Marbury signs with Celtics

After a rocky year with the New York Knicks, Stephon Marbury and the Knicks agree to part ways and Starbury signs with the Boston Celtics. He’ll be joining the already stacked and harmonious trio Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen who helped the Celtics capture the championship last year.

After skipping games and taking a leave of absence after his father passed away in December 2007 followed by a season ending ankle injury with the Knicks, he received a warm welcome complete with a standing ovation when he made his debut as a Celtic on Friday. The Celtics beat the Indiana Pacers 104-99.

Starbury is expected to earn $1.2 million from the Boston Celtics for the remainder of the NBA season. The Miami Heat were also interested in signing Marbury, but the Celtics shut out the Heat with their financial offer for Marbury.

2009 NBA All-Star Highlights

83008114MC024_Sprite_Slam_DThis All-Star weekend 2009 had a number of notable moments. My Highlights were when Nate Robinson jumped over Superman Dwight Howard and slams his way to win his second nba slam dunk competition. But Nate, or should I say Kryptonite, did it in a villain type fashion sporting an all green New York Knicks uniform.

And then something was very different. Allen Iverson cut his hair! Well, that was a surprise. I mean, I remember when

Which now brings me to Shaq. This dude is a bowl of jokes. For some reason his intro seemed to be the longest and he was performing with the Jabawokeez! It was pure hilarity and good times. Remember Shaq and Kobe’s lil feud. I’m not entirely sure about their past details, but we all knew that the two didn’t get along. Some sources even suspected it was all for ratings. But either way, theybilde were back together like they used to be before Shaq left the Lakers. The West dominated the East 146 – 119 and Shaq and Kobe split the MVP honours together.
