What in the Gilbert Arenas is up with Gilbert Arenas

Good job by whoever had the foresight to change Washington’s name from the Bullets to the Wizards. Otherwise, bloggers and columnists would have so much fuel, we’d probably explode.

In a matter of two months, Gilbert Arenas has gone from having his fiance allegedly stolen away by Shaq to now drawing a gun on his teammate, Javaris Crittenton, in the Wizards locker room.

The report about the gun incident says that ‘Agent Zero’ has had “unloaded firearms” stored in a container in his locker. Apparently, the Washington Wizards locker room situation is about as dangerous as a 3 AM walk through Camden, so it’s necessary to keep multiple weapons nearby just in case something pops off. Crittenton apparently shared Hibachi’s locker room safety concerns as he also had a gun stashed and drew it on Arenas during the altercation.

Who knew something like this was even possible: Teammates pulling guns on each other over an alleged gambling debt. Crittenton hasn’t appeared in a game yet this season, so I would imagine his days as a Wizard are just about done with, but it wouldn’t surprise me to see the Wiz drop Arenas, who seems to have a lot on his plate all of the sudden.

Maybe a reunion with Eddie Jordan is in order. We could also add Tracy McGrady in the process and send five guards out on the floor that miss 60% of their shots and want the ball in their hands at all times.

I love basketball.

    Hey man what up? This was a really good piece you wrote bro. Someone should have known something was up when Gil showed up in a Bullet’s jersey, but seriously Gilbert’s idea of a shootaround was way different from the rest of the team.

Feel free to leave a comment. Or don't. It's whatever...
