How important is it to play a joke on a teammate when the joke calls for you to bring “unloaded fire arms” to the locker room? Call me crazy, but there is no reason at all to bring guns nowhere for just play.
Gilbert Arenas of the National Basketball Association’s Washington Wizards brought guns to the locker room, as he said, to play a joke on a teammate. Have we not learned from Plaxico Burress? What is the purpose of this? The only thing Arenas needs to be doing is learning how he can help the sorry team he plays for win; joking around should have been the last thing he did.
Arenas has lost his mind and the NBA needs to suspend him for the rest of the season. Now as a fan I would love to see him play, but what he did was just stupid, and regardless of the courts doing something to him the the NBA needs to come down hard on him.
Yeah, we understand that Arenas does not march to the same drum as the other players of the NBA, but Ron Artest never brought guns to a game that we know of. Arenas needs to understand the importance of his celebrity and the impact he has on young men. Now, the Rev. Al Sharpton has jumped on board against Arenas, which sparked Arenas to say that he wants Al to apologize for his statement.
Now, that sounds to me like a person who is not that regretful of what he has done. Gilbert, you were wrong. You have said you were wrong. Now you need to shut up and allow the chips to fall where they may.
