Gilbert Arenas Suspended Indefinitely by NBA

Posted by Media Outrage on January 7, 2010

Agent Zero will have plenty of time to re-think his ridiculous actions, because David Stern has suspended the Wizards shooting guard indefinitely.

Via Yahoo Sports:

NEW YORK (AP)—NBA commissioner David Stern indefinitely suspended Gilbert Arenas without pay on Wednesday, saying the Washington Wizards guard is “not currently fit to take the court.”

Stern also warned that Arenas’ conduct will “ultimately result in a substantial suspension, and perhaps worse.”

Arenas is under investigation by federal and local authorities after admitting to bringing guns to the locker room. Stern originally planned to wait to take action and directed the Washington organization to do the same. But the commissioner tired of Arenas’ behavior.

Before a game on Tuesday in Philadelphia, Arenas was photographed encircled by teammates, smiling and pointing his index fingers at them as if they were guns. Arenas met with law enforcement officials on Monday and said the next day he feared Stern more than the authorities because the commissioner was “mean.”

“Although it is clear that the actions of Mr. Arenas will ultimately result in a substantial suspension, and perhaps worse, his ongoing conduct has led me to conclude that he is not currently fit to take the court in an NBA game,” Stern said in a statement. “Accordingly, I am suspending Mr. Arenas indefinitely, without pay, effective immediately pending the completion of the investigation by the NBA.”

Arenas is scheduled to earn $16.2 million this season. The punishment came on his 28th birthday.

The Wizards supported Stern’s decision in a statement attributed to president Ernie Grunfeld and the Pollin family, which owns the team. The late Abe Pollin changed the team’s name from the Bullets because of the violent connotation.

“Strictly legal issues aside, Gilbert’s recent behavior and statements, including his actions and statements last night in Philadelphia, are unacceptable,” the statement said. “Some of our other players appeared to find Gilbert’s behavior in Philadelphia amusing. This is also unacceptable. Under Abe Pollin’s leadership, our organization never tolerated such behavior, and we have no intention of ever doing so.”

Mediaoutrage – SMH. Some people do the dumbest stuff.  Why play with millions like that?  Be a fake thug in the mirror of your million dollar home.

    I guess Arenas took his agent zero nickname a little too seriously. I watched his post game interview last night and he stated that he doesn’t feel any remorse because he doesn’t feel like he did anything wrong. Maybe when april rolls around and he realizes he flushed about 10 mill down the $h:tter he’ll feel remorse.

    Ok, but what about Jvaris Crittenton. What’s the deal on him?
    He did not have to pick up the gun or guns and point the gun
    in Arenas direction. Their “Both Wrong” I don’t care if Arenas
    stored the gun or gun’s in the locker room, and I don’t care
    if the gun or gun’s belong to Arenas, there BOTH DEAD WRONG.

    Man, another black athlete messing things up.

  9. Agree with all the earlier posts. Basketball players more than any other athletes, seem to be particularly afflicted with grandiose visions/egos and seem to be constantly trying to live harder than the next fool. Football players are a distant second.
    Be real…all you basketball players spent your youths ballin on the court and being SURROUNDED by real niggas. None of ya’ll bitchmade mofo’s EVER hustled or scrapped for ish, except pushing/shoving on the court and perhaps smacking (or being smacked). Have you ever watched the average bball player fight on the court? Only a step above two broads.
    Now ya’ll dumb asses get sum damn $$ and you want to go all hardcore. A real nigga…a grimy ass real nigga will laugh at yo stupid ass right b4 bitch slappin you silly, f**king yo broad and robbin you for all yo diamonds, furs and stacks.

    Hire a f**kin bodyguard and leave the real ish to niggas who HAVE to thug to eat…not somefool who “plays” a thug on tv…SMDH.

    Also, to my Nupes…happy belated FD! 99yrs and STILL STRONG!!! Yo 2 tha m**h*fuckin Yo!
