The Wizards settle their disputes Old West style

Gilbert Arenas apparently owes Javaris Crittenton money.  Javaris wants his money.  Gilbert doesn't seem to want to pay it.  So they did what any reasonable people would do in that situation… drew guns on each other in a crowded locker room.

The duel in DC — unprecedented in sports history — was sparked
when Crittenton became enraged at the veteran guard for refusing to
make good on a gambling debt, a source said.

"I'm not your punk!" Crittenton shouted at Arenas, according to a league source close to the Wizards.

That prompted Arenas to draw on Crittenton, who then also grabbed for a gun, league security sources said. 

A playground pal of Crittenton's from Atlanta, Kendrick "Bookie Ball"
Long, confirmed the locker-room standoff and said he learned of it
directly from the third-year player out of Georgia Tech. 

[Arenas] was f- – -ing with him; he [Crittenton] was just defending
himself!" declared Long, who said the dispute was over money but would
not elaborate.

    “You don’t think they call me Agent zero for nothing”
    Thats some crazy stuff tho… I wonder how many players own guns, I mean we’ve heard about Telfair & Delonte West.

  • – I don’t know why people say it is crazy or shocking that people (of all walks of life) own firearms. Christ, it’s in our constitution…
    What about the rash of gang related robberies that have been going on around the Verizon Center? No one mentions that in the article.
    What about the fact this story hasn’t been confirmed by anyone credible other than an unnamed security person and some guy named “Bookie Ball?” But it’s truth?
    Talk about trying really hard to MAKE a story.
    Gilbert admitted to having unloaded fire arms in his locker room. He’ll have to face the music there. But let’s not report that story as if an unloaded fire arm is the same as a loaded fire arm. Far too much “gun fear” going on there… and it’s not like D.C.’s stringent gun policies has undermine the crime rates there.

    I never knew Arenas was a shooting guard.
