The Gilbert Arenas gun controversy has a new wrinkle. According to reports, on New Years Eve Arenas pulled his gun on teammate Javaris Crittenton who in turn pulled his own, creating a heated standoff.

Apparently gambling debts were the source of the argument. Arenas has already admitted to storing unloaded guns in his locker. The league is currently investigating the initial gun possession incident but obviously will have more things of substance to consider.

There's great irony here.

One of the reasons the team changed its name from Bullets to Wizards was to get away from any glorification of guns in a city that has more than its share of gun violence.

these guys have a right to carry guns. The gun thing isnt he issue really, its the fact that the Wizards have two of the dumbest, more immature morons in the NBA.

Gilbert Arenas was all smiles on Tuesday night against the Sixers. The guard was taking pre-game photos with teammates using his hands as guns. In addition, Arenas said he was more afraid of David Stern's wrath than the federal and local authorities.

"I've looked at the consequences that they've brought against other people and they were like three to five games," Arenas said. The star guard was also very loose about his Monday visit to the U.S. Attorney's office, saying, "It was at a conference table and we talked and joked. (There were) six of us." Well, Arenas certainly doesn't seem worried but his fantasy owners should be. If you can still trade him, do it now.

Once the investigation is over, he's probably done for the year. If I were him I'd take this a little more seriously.

NEW YORK -- Gilbert Arenas was suspended without pay Wednesday by NBA commissioner David Stern, who determined the player's behavior made him "not currently fit to take the court."

A day after the Washington Wizards guard was photographed before a game in Philadelphia pointing his index fingers, as if they were guns, at his teammates, Stern warned the former All-Star that his conduct will "ultimately result in a substantial suspension, and perhaps worse."

Just a word of advice for any aspiring athletes who may stash guns and incite a national story and federal investigation:

It's probably not a good idea to smile for the camera with your fingers out like a pretend gun while the investigation is ongoing.

I wasn't sure if they taught that at rookie camp, so there ya go.

If these guys are so worried about there well being to the point that they feel they need protection.........they sure as hell make enough money to hire private security/bodyguards..

I love Arenas' excuse for bringing the guns to the arena.. ' I didn't want the guns in the house around my kids'. Well genius... if you are that worried don't have the guns or get a Gun Safe!!.
