    I mean come on.....you've made it this far and now they do the dumbest things ever. There are two things on my mind right now......

    1) We all know D.C. is this worste place in the country and has the strictest gun laws. Until recently (when the supreme court ruled their no-handgun law was unconstitutional) no guns were allowed whatsoever....not even being transported through D.C. so why the fuck did Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton (both of the Washington Wizards) think it was a good fucking idea to draw guns on each other in the locker room? Rumer has it Gilbert owes some gambling debt and they (Gil and then Javaris) drew guns on each other.....come on now! Gambling? The league minimum per game is set pretty high in itself. I'm sure he could have gotten it back. The minimum a rookie can make is $457,588. Half a million damn dollars! Now this is a matter of the U.S. Attorney. Gil signed a $111 million dollar deal so why didn't he just pay up?

    Here's a link to the pay scale....it varies per yrs in the NBA:
    NBA.com - Minimum Annual Salary Scale

    Here's a link to an article dealing with the Gilbert gun thing:
    Reports: Arenas, teammate pull guns on each other - nba - SI.com

    2) NBA players should know that when they make it big.....women follow too. Gilbert was sleeping with some chick who worked in the front office for the Kings. He only slept with her when the Wizards was visiting. Next thing ya know she comes up pregnant and she hires this big shot LA attorney who threatened to subpeana Gilbert at their next game in Sacremento. The game was televised on TNT and the attorney was threatening to walk on the court when he was shooting a free throw or whatever and hand him his papers. Gilbert and the Wizards got together and fed a story to the press that he was ill (and he watched from a Dallas hotel). Eventually both of them sorted it out and he moved her to D.C (and of course she doesn't work....why would she want to) so he gave her a stipend or whatever.

    He bought a house directly down the street from him (I think the next block). Well, this was about 5 yrs ago. Soon after I guess they started seeing each other again.....She moved into his house and what do ya know, she got pregnant again. You think thats bad? She just delivered another child last month (December). This is baby # 3 in 5 years and now the shit has hit the fan. She wasn't only fucking him......She was fucking SHAQ! Yes, you heard right.....SHAQ! Gilbert's baby mama and Shaunie (Shaq's wife) was good friends until some emails between Shaq and Gil's baby mama surfaced. It got Gilbert wondering if the baby she was carrying was his. The emails were dated earlier this yr. so she's been messing around for a while. Now he done moved out their place and is demanding a paternity test. He's got to be the biggest dummy ever. I could have told him not to trust her. I hate when men think with their pants and not with their head. Once the whole thing with the first kid went down perhaps he should have moved with caution.

    Sometimes NBA players (and perhaps all pro athletes) are careless about the decisions they make.

    So who has the rights to the movie?

    Is it really just high profile athletes? Just watch Jerry Springer, Maury Povitch, or any daytime trash TV.

    Lol....this would make a good movie
    Yeah, then again you're right Wish....but the different is they have Lawyers, agents, assistants and the works to sheild this stuff from letting it happen. Now the gun thing is totally his fault but as far as his baby mama.....he needs to cut his losses and drop her quick

    This is why nobody should be surprised or outraged by the Tiger incident. Being an athlete + beings rich = tons of groupies flinging their vaginas at you. You got to be extremely strong NOT to cheat. And in yesteryear the writers knew but didn't write about what went on behind closed doors. Now in the blogging and gossip column age none of your personal business is safe.

    I'm wondering in what world athletes are paid to be smart? :confused: If you work at NASA on the space program I wouldn't expect you to know how to shoot hoops.

    Anti-intellectualism is rampant in the sports world, and in mainstream culture in general. But everyone pushes college on young kids. Go figure! You better pick a most practical major, though. :eek:

    If your well known and/or famous, everything you do is magnified.

    Its not a thing about being paid to be smart.....that why they have the lawyers, agents, accountants, ect.-to do that for them

    1) You don't have to go to college or even finish school to know pulling a gun on somebody is wrong. 5 yr. olds know what's right and what's wrong. Picture kids looking at the t.v. saying "swiper no swiping!".....knowing what's wrong starts early.

    2) I've heard that in rookie training camp they warm the men about golddigers so its not like he wasn't warmed.

    3) What about that NASA space bitch who put on a depend so she wouldn't have to stop when she was driving to kill her lover's gf. I guess there's no excuse for her........

    This may be true but how much do you need to magnify pulling weapons on each other illegal or otherwise.

    One big problem with your whole story, they never drew guns on each other. Oh, and Gilbert already said the whole Shaq thing wasn't true but it was "great drama".

    This is a classic example of bad reporting by the media.

    No they are paid to win a game. They don't have to do anything but that. To oblige them to be something more than that is unrealistic. A porn star is there to fuck and suck not debate global warming and cold fusion. :confused: Have you ever heard listened to a typical porn star interview? Well it's not 'Meet The Press'.

    even if they didnt draw guns on each other he didn't have a permit to carry a concealed weapon and it .

    that's exactly what I was saying....they aren't paid to be smart but.....there is a such thing as common sense. If they can learn and know what a foul and 3 pointer is then they should be able to know certain other things. Perhaps if basketball players dont posess basic "smartness" then they shouldnt own handguns. Who's fault is it that they didn't read the handgun info when registering the gun? Not ours

    His story is dumb anyway...he didnt want to leave the handguns at home because he has small children....please! Ever heard of a lock on your door? A safe? A safe deposit box? Besides, if the guns were unloaded as he said then what was he concerned about. His kids are 5 and under......all he had to do was hide it in his car if he wanted to. What was the need to bring it into the locker room?
