Arenas Stored Guns in Locker Room

Wizards say Arenas had firearms in locker - NBA - Yahoo! Sports

Well I'm a fairly new to the whole pro-guns thing, but come on... How long have you been living in DC? You know there's a gun ban here and why the hell did you bring them into the locker room?

Couldn't he have just gone directly to a police precinct and turned them in? But instead brings them to the locker room so that team security could turn them in to the police.

I mean the whole situation seems odd at best but there had to have been a cleaner way for Arenas to handle things than this.

Although with that said, I don't think he deserves a suspension. Maybe just a fine for breaking the NBA rules.

Re: Arenas Stored Guns in Locker Room

I'm waiting for Mr. Arenas to one day come to the realization that there is such a thing as maturity and accountability......Bad decision after bad decision!!

If he didn't want the guns in his house because of his young child that's understandable, but his method of disposal could have used a little more thought.

Big deal. I don't have a problem with how he handled it. He could have handled it better, but if at the end of the day he feels he kept his family safe, I don't have any problem with it.

Espically with the city having such strict gun laws, coupled with the NBA rule regarding weapons at league facilities. Anyone who knows anything about guns is going to see a problem with that. There's a lot of different ways he could have resolved his situation aside from the one he chose.

ST might be alive today if he was able to own a gun instead of taking on people with a machete (sp). I was actually just kind of joking but I thought I'd answer your question.

Report: Wizards Draw Guns in Locker Room

Thought this merited its own thread outside the ongoing Wizards thread

Report says Washington Wizards Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton drew guns on each other - ESPN

If true...eff them both

Re: Report: Wizards Draw Guns in Locker Room

Is it not shocking that people label NBA players with the thug label?

Re: Report: Wizards Draw Guns in Locker Room

I posted earlier about Arenas keeping guns in there. No wonder he wanted to get rid of them, there's no crime without evidence eh? How Arenas is still playing with the Wizards is beyond me at times...

Re: Report: Wizards Draw Guns in Locker Room

I'm not saying it's a good thing Pollin is dead but the fact that he's no longer running this team should prevent us from future outrageous deals like the ones we gave Jamison and Arenas. Because of his age and what he did for the city, it was always casually dismissed as "he's such a loyal guy" when he gave out outrageous contracts to players and kept a guy-Wes Unseld- in a role even he has said he was not suited for. And the NBA isn't like the NFL, these contracts are guaranteed.

Anyway, I don't know if the report is true but like I said if it is...eff them both. What an embarassment

Re: Report: Wizards Draw Guns in Locker Room

They don't generally pull guns on each other in the locker room

Maybe they should change their name back to the Bullets
