You don't think this is an embarassment to a team that had to change its name from the "Bullets"... one that might want to get a massive contract off its books?

Holy ****, I just read an article which said there is a possibility for the Wiz to void Arenas contract.

Does this guy have no PR representatives or something? I'm sure he's got attorneys and an entourage, but damn dude straight up made a joke out of all this. Whether he feels innocent or not, he has handled the situation all wrong... I envision a huge "T.I having to give PSA's about guns to children" kind of thing coming to Gilbert in the future, before or after any jail time he might receive.

He didn't actually bring guns into the arena, he didn't try to make a joke of the whole thing, and he kept his mouth shut.

Default Re: Arenas just supsended indefinitely

But Wizards general manager Ernie Grunfeld, who allegedly was the one to report Arenas' firearms to NBA security, may have another option -- one he's seriously considering should Arenas be charged with a crime: void his contract.

The move, which would free the Wizards of any financial obligation and instantly remove Arenas' salary from their books, is complicated but not unprecedented. The NBA's collective bargaining agreement clearly states that a contract can be voided if a player "at any time, fails, refuses, or neglects to conform his personal conduct to standards of good citizenship, good moral character (defined here to mean not engaging in acts of moral turpitude, whether or not such acts would constitute a crime), and good sportsmanship ..." It could be argued that any criminal charges leveled against Arenas would constitute a failure in personal conduct.

You know....I wouldnt be that shocked, if Washington actually pulls off the void, and boots Arenas out of town.

There is no but. No wealthy human being is ok with losing that kind of money.

Unless the Wizards do something stupid, it shouldn't be too difficult. Arenas is doing the work for them.

Gil will be back. Either that or tear sh*t up in Europe.

Wizards statement: "We fully endorse the decision of the NBA to indefinitely suspend Gilbert Arenas."

Wizards: "Gilbert's recent behavior & statements, including his actions & statements last night in Philadelphia, are unacceptable."

actually its perfect irony and the best thing that could've happened to the Wizards. They were going nowhere with the Wiz being all about Gilbert getting back to his old chucking self. Wiz were good when Gilbert was hurt where they played more team oriented ball. Now they might be able to void Gilberts contract. Its definitely better than having to be on the leash for a $100mill to someone who makes your team worse.

You also have to think about how much he is spending on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis... Car payments, mortgages, child support (?), etc... You know missing any amount of games (without pay) is going to hurt... Hell, the reason all this happened (supposedly) was because he didn't want to pay up in a card game, and that was what less than 1% of his income?
