Stern says in a statement Wednesday that Arenas' actions will
"ultimately result in a substantial suspension, and perhaps worse."
Arenas violated NBA rules by bringing guns into Washington's locker
room, Stern decided to punish Arenas now. He said the suspension begins
Stern says he originally planned to wait for the
criminal investigation to be completed before taking action, and
directed the Wizards to do the same.
Every game Arenas ends up missing during the suspension will cost him $147,208.
You know… when you face the possibility of losing tens of millions of dollars and enough suspension and jail time that would cripple your chances of making any of that money back…. it probably would have been smart to just stay quiet.
Instead, Arenas called David Stern "mean"… and he does the finger shooting thing. I mean… this is a case study in everything you're NOT supposed to do in this situation. Doesn't he have people to tell him how to handle a crisis?
And this is just the beginning.
What a dummy.
