He should be suspended for severely or even BANNED from NBA to set example of consequences to discourage others from even thinking of doing that **** again.

I hope Javaris Crittenton sued Arenas azz off for tons of $.

Banned? For real?

Even if he was, he would probably make 30 million a year playing for Olympiacos and live like a King.

If he gets charged and convicted of a felony, he might not be able to get a visa to work overseas.

The guy has made TONS of money up until now, we hear 1 story about him not wanting to pay a gambling debt, and you assume he has a problem? Come on, man....

not broke from gambling, but there is actually a good percentage of nba players who lose most if not all of their money after retirement. i don't remember the pct but it was a "you have to be ****ing kidding" kind of percentage. we are picking on the nba but its not just them, its all athletes.

BTW, the **** coming out, it looks liek some of this being gambling related, etc. might be true. Washington post just broke something. This thought that he was just stupidly showing his guns to critterton seems like wishful thinking.

Remember when O.J. Simspon just got acquitted of murder, then outside he was laughing it up with his lawyers Cochran and Shapiro, making those mocking stabbing motions?



Good times..........

Do some people only care about money?

He won't be able to spend any of his money in prison if he gets convicted.

Not only that, would he even be allowed in most countries? I know if you're entering the USA (from Canada) with a criminal record they will turn you away.

He really ****ed up this time and this is only the beginning.

I would feel bad for him if he wasn't such a moron.

1) Says it's not that big of a deal

2) Makes fun of David Stern

3) Pretends to shoot his teammates

4) Questionable twitter comments

... This guy shot himself in the foot multiple times. I hope he doesn't lose his contract, but if he does he's got no one to blame but himself.

It is not a big deal, what a ridiculous league and a ridiculous country obsessed with security. I can't believe most of you guys are defending Stern.

For a country that pretends to defend liberty you're quick to judge and condemn a guy whose only fault was to make a joke. I knew Stern wanted to attract chinese viewers to the NBA but he took it a little too far, giving his best imitation of the chinese government.

If the US doesn't want him I'm sure there's a place for him here in Europe.

I like Gilbert Arenas as a player, but he's a very stupid individual.
