Default NBA has suspended Gilbert Arenas indefinitely until investigation ends

Just saw on MSNBC. I can only imagine his pre-game antics didn't help matters.

Here is the statement from the NBA: http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=5234

It's pretty much directly because of his actions yesterday.

NEW YORK -- The NBA has suspended the Washington Wizards' Gilbert Arenas indefinitely.

"Although it is clear that the actions of Mr. Arenas will ultimately result in a substantial suspension, and perhaps worse, his ongoing conduct has led me to conclude that he is not currently fit to take the court in an NBA game," commissioner David Stern said in a statement Wednesday. "Accordingly, I am suspending Mr. Arenas indefinitely, without pay, effective immediately pending the completion of the investigation by the NBA."

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

It's harsh, but Gilbert hasn't helped himself by completing refusing to take this seriously. The gun pose last night was clearly the last straw for Stern.

I wonder if the incident can lead to the Wizards voiding his contract.

Shocking, acting like having guns is no big deal and a making a joke of it to the press. Smart move.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Gil.

He'd better care. Don't think the Wiz aren't considering voidng that contract. Because they are.

" The whole affair may also give the Wizards the opportunity to void the six-year, $111 million contract Arenas signed in the summer of 2008. There are moral clauses written into most contracts, giving the team the option of voiding a contract for actions considered detrimental or embarrassing to the organization if publicized."
