Poor Thang: Gilbert Arenas Suspended Indefinitely Without Pay

- By Bossip Staff Categories: News, SMH, Sports

See what being a dumba*s will get you:

Ex-Wildcat and current NBA player Gilbert Arenas has been suspended without pay following allegations of pulling a gun out on a teammate, AP reports say. NBA commissioner David Stern has indefinitely suspended Gilbert Arenas, saying the Washington Wizards guard is”not currently fit to take the court” for a game.

The news comes after Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton–both players on the Washington Wizards– reportedly drew guns on each other during a locker-room argument over a gambling debt. Players’ union executive director Billy Hunter called the matter “unprecedented in the history of sports.”

“I’ve never heard of players pulling guns on each other in a locker room,” he told the Washington Post. Arenas, in the second season of a six-year, $111 million contract, was suspended for Washington’s season opener in 2004 because he failed to maintain proper registration of a handgun while living in California in 2003. Arenas played for the UA Men’s Basketball team before being drafted in 2001 for two seasons. He is 28-years-old.

Damn, it’s one thing to be suspended…but it’s another thing to be suspended without pay! Hopefully this will be a lesson to all athletes since Plaxico’s dummy situation wasn’t good enough.

    This is blown out of proportion! First it was reported that he drew the gun against another player, then that story was redacted. Carrying a gun to work, in bars or on a bus is the law in some southern states (GA). But the real issue here is this image that most (whites) have about black pro athlete being thugs which helps drives this disproportional response. I am 100% sure that the response from the media and the public would have been much more tempered if this was a white player..and that’s the truth and that’s America

    I can only hope that he’s learning his lesson!! Because in this crazy world 3 three things would only make me wanna pull out my piece. 1 My children 2 My food and 3 keep your hands to ya self and I will do the same thing with mine..

    This is a perfect example of when keeping it real goes wrong. Why would you have a gun in the locker room talking about it was gonna be used as a joke? I’ve never been with my girls and pulled out a .22 like “SIKE”. You only pull out a gun when you intend to use it. Its not ok to “Always stay strapped”. Y’all letting Lil Wayne send you all the way off.

    Out in the “real world” where MOST of us work (offices, factories, warehouses, schools, etc.) —– anybody who pulled this stunt would be FIRED, and probably JAILED.

    Does this IDIOT have any concept of boundaries to acceptable behavior?

    Obviously not!! Dumba$$ to the 15th power !!

    It just shows what a bubble famous ppl live in never having to think about the consequences of their actions. Unfortunately for him his bubble just burst and by the time they are ready to look at him he’ll be considered ancient by basketball standards and he even before this incident he wasn’t proving that he was even worth $111 milli. He just did the Wizards a favor cuz he gave them a way out by being a fool.

    What did the Bible say about a fool and his money?

    Somewhere former NBA Deputy Commission, Simon Gourdine, is shaking his head. Noone seems to remember when the NBA was considered “too black” and drug infested for mass appeal. Current players have reneged on their obligation to be ambassadors of the sport that Dr. J, Bird, Magic, Jordan helped build.
