Gilbert Arenas was right

JAVARIS CRITTENTON

Former Georgia Tech star and NBA player Javaris Crittenton is being sought by police on murder charges. Crittenton is accused of killing a 23-year-old woman. Crittenton allegedly shot at a man he spotted walking on an Atlanta street last week, believing him to be the man who robbed him in April. The female victim, a mother of four, was a completely innocent bystander, who just happened to be walking down the street at the time. Also, the man Crittenton intended to shoot wasn’t the guy who robbed him.

You may remember the ridiculous gun incident that actually sent NBA funnyman Gilbert Arenas to jail for a brief period of time in 2010. In that debacle, Arenas was in a gun-fueled confrontation with then-teammate Crittenton over a gambling debt.

BLOG SAYS GILBERT ARENAS REALLY OWED TEAMMATE $60,000

More details are coming out in the Gilbert Arenas/Javaris Crittenton gun battle. According to the blog of former Washington Times reporter Mike Jones (who was the Wizards beat reporter until the paper folded its sports department), Crittenton had fronted Arenas $60,000 to pay teammate JeVale McGee money he lost in a card game. Crittendon had then jokingly threatened to shoot Arenas in his injured leg unless he paid him back. Arenas responded by placing three of his guns on a chair with a sign for Crittenton which said, “Pick One.”

GILBERT ARENAS AND JAVARIS CRITTENTON

Several news outlets are reporting that Washington Wizards teammates Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton pulled guns on each other in the team’s locker room. The incident apparently happened on Christmas Eve and was over a gambling debt that Arenas owed to Crittenton. The Washington Post says the amount Arenas owes Crittenton is $25,000. ESPN is reporting that Arenas lost the money to Crittenton in a card game.

The New York Post says Arenas drew first. There is talk of suspensions coming for both players or even voiding Arenas’ contract. That might be the least of Arenas’ problems. One report says D.C. Metro Police and even the Feds are being called in to investigate the incident.

Union head Billy Hunter, of the NBA Player’s Association, isn’t even denying the confrontion happened saying, “This is unprecedented in the history of sports. I’ve never heard of players pulling guns on each other in a locker room.”

Yeah, no crap! The Wizards had actually made a suspicious announcement on Christmas day about Arenas turning his unloaded guns over to team security.

Fanhouse.com says the Wizards aren’t likely to void Arenas’ contract which still has $96 million remaining on it over the next five years. Arenas had signed a six-year $111 million contract with the Wizards in July of 2008.

Ironically, Wizards owner Abe Pollin, who died last month, changed the franchise’s nickname from “Bullets” to “Wizards” in 1997 because he abhorred gun violence.
