Poor Thang: Gilbert Arenas Suspended Indefinitely Without Pay

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.
