I always knew Gilbert was a gunner, but damn

    Hopfully not a d_b.

    This is beyond scary. If a player shoots and kills another player in the locker room, I do not even want to think what would happen to the NBA as we know it.

    Steinberg's Bog has an excerpt from a story that claims Arenas and Crittenton drew on each other on Christmas Eve in a dispute over a gambling debt. Cripes. If true, I'd suspect both will face long suspensions. As they should.

    Gilbert Arenas is a weird dude. I get that. I don't follow him closely enough to know if he's "weird" or weird.

    Maybe the tweets referenced in Steinberg's bog are performance art. If so, kudos, I guess. But if not? He's a raging asshole.

    He's both. Weird and a raging a-hole.

    That shit is stupid. And not funny. The narcissism level of a-holes is at Defcon 5, when you combined their ego with all the outlets for them to display said narcissism.

    DEFCON 1?
     
  9. If the NY Post report is true, what punishment is enough? Are we talking possible lifetime banishment here for an NBA superstar?

    What would happen to YOU if you and a colleague drew on each other in the workplace?
    Whatever it is, that's what should happen to them.
    Fired?
    Banished?
    Jail?

    All fine by me.

    I want to see video of that drawing guns on each other. There has *got* to be video of that.
     
  12. I agree. This is worse than Artest charging into the crowd, right?

    I'm honestly surprised stuff like this doesn't happen more often in baseball, with so many teen-agers, many from abject poverty, crammed into miserable little clubhouses.
