A veteran NY Post reporter says that Gilbert Arenas and his childhood friend/Wizards teammate Javaris Crittenton pulled out guns on each other during a locker room confrontation Christmas Eve. Supposedly it’s all over a gambling debt and Javaris owes Gilbert money. This is supposedly the real reason behind why Gilbert got in trouble for bringing a gun into the locker room last month. And he really hasn’t been the same since news of his fiance/baby mama cheating with Shaq broke right here on this site. The Post reports:
League sources say the pistol-packing point guards had heaters at the ready inside the Verizon Center, the Washington, DC, home of the Wizards — whose name was changed from the Bullets over gun- violence concerns. It was the three- time all-star Arenas, 27, who went for his gun first, sources said, draw ing on the 22-year-old Crit tenton, who quickly brandished a firearm as well. It was not clear whether other teammates saw the shocking standoff, which happened on a practice day. The duel in DC — unprecedented in sports history — was sparked when Crittenton became enraged at the vet eran 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. “He [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.
Gilbert. Reportedly, he denies it all of course.
