For those who have heard the constant news about Washington Wizards G Gilbert Arenas and are starting to get sick of it, well this is your thread! Gets even tougher since I live in the team's market I just think that he is an idiot. First and foremost, I am NOT a Washington Wizards fan at all (Go Spurs!). Second, for those who are curious, Gilbert Arenas is a G who is suspended indefinitely by the NBA due to recent incidents involving him with firearms in several instances. First, there was news of him having several of his unregistered firearms at the Verizon Center Locker Room in 03 when he was removing them from his house. Then we hear news of him pulling out firearms on fellow teammate Javarris Crittenton. What provoked his suspension was this picture of him "shooting around" at his teammates at a pregame huddle before a matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Since today he is being indicted and will plea guilty for carrying unregistered firearms in DC, I feel that this has been one of the stupidest things by an athelete who is currently in a 6 year 111 million contract with his team. Remember Plaxico Burress who had gone from Super Bowl Hero to currently serving 2 years in jail for carrying illegal firearms in the state of NY when he accidentally shot himself in the thigh November 2008. What's your opinion on the situation?
