Careers Are On the Line After NBA Players Draw Guns On Eachother (Video)
This was stupid.
Two players from the Washington Wizards basketball team drew guns on each other in the locker room after a fight broke out over a gambling debt.
Wizards teammates Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton reportedly drew guns at each other over a gambling debt in the locker room after a game.
FOX News reported that the incident could end the careers of the two NBA stars.
The Washington Wizards never told the NBA that an all-star player and his teammate drew guns on each other in the team’s locker room during a fight over a gambling debt, the New York Post reported.
The league reportedly found out about the Dec. 21 incident after the Post inquired about it. The alleged gun duel now threatens to end not only the careers of the two players involved, all-star Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton — but also of general manager Ernie Grunfeld, a former New York Knicks star and president of the Wizards, the Post reported.
“This is gonna cost Ernie Grunfeld his job,” a former NBA team president told The Post. “Because the buck stops at the top.”
Neither player nor Grunfeld have been suspended.
The incident occurred inside the locker room at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. Arenas, 27, reportedly went for his gun first after a verbal fight with Crittenton about a gambling debt. Crittenton, 22, allegedly brandished a firearm as well, the Post reports, citing unnamed inside sources.
CDR M adds: They should go back to their original name, the Washington Bullets.
It somehow fits better.
