Wow, it's New Year's Day and we already have some wildly entertaining sports news. First off, last night Washington Wizard's star Gilbert Arenas started tweeting... and the result might have been the best series of tweets I've read ever. Next, the news comes out that Arenas and a teammate pulled a gun on one another in the locker room on Christmas Eve. Yahtzee!
NEW YORK -- Washington Wizards teammates Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton drew guns on each other during a Christmas Eve locker room argument over a gambling debt, according to The New York Post.
Last week, the Wizards and Arenas acknowledged that Arenas had stored unloaded firearms in a container in his locker, and the NBA said it was looking into the situation.
It was during that investigation that a confrontation between Arenas and Crittenton was revealed, according to a Yahoo! Sports report.
The dispute stemmed from an unspecified disagreement, sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Citing an anonymous source, the Post reported in Friday's edition, however, that the standoff was sparked when Crittenton became angry at Arenas for refusing to make good on a gambling debt.
Question... I certainly am for gun rights and everything, but it always cracks me up when there's like the 60 year old guy that finds it necessary to store an entire arsenal in their car and at their house in a small town. What the hell are you going to use all those guns for? Just admit that they aren't just for your protection but also for you to show it off. With Arenas storing firearms in his locker... why? You have a right to own a gun but at what point are you going to use it in the locker room?!
Bizarre and now there's talk about criminal charges, which just seems stupid and an unnecessary waste of our law enforcement. Just slap a big "idiot" sticker on both their foreheads.
