the team takes "this situation and the ongoing investigation very seriously."

Does anyone else read this like I do? "If either player is a star they'll get a good talking to (and bonus if they continue to perform well and don't pull a gun again in the locker room this year) but if the player isn't performing well, we'll throw the book at them, terminate their contract for cause, and trade them for players that will perform better."

This is sad. Sad sad sad. This is what our young people are supposed to look up to. They should be kicked out. No questions asked. The coach should be kicked out as well. Here is some more on this:

NBA must eject gun-toting Wizard, Gilbert Arenas - NYPOST.com

From what I hear from googling a lot of NBA players have guns in their lockers. WTH are they doing with guns in the locker room?

According to the NBA by-laws the players are allowed to own guns but NOT allowed to keep them in their locker or bring them to the stadium.

If the NBA is serious they should ban them all for at least a couple weeks.
"players drew guns at each other on Christmas eve over a gambling debt"

The funny thing about all this is, all the guns were unloaded, so they pulled unloaded guns on each other :lol:

I am very interested in seeing where this ends up. Both players are now trying to say it was all a joke and they were only messing around. Also, the club apparently tried to hide this from the league as well and cover it up. What more, "agent zero" could have his contract voided, which is worth $100 million.

They apparently didn't learn anything from Plaxico Burress.

Also, I deleted two rather inappropriate posts..Let's keep this thread civil and adult like :)

Bring back the days before the 1970's when basketball "stars" didn't make millions of dollars so they could buy drugs, guns, Escalades and $4mil rings for the wives they cheated on.

The almighty dollar is what speaks. Could you imagine a CAP on sports salaries at, say, $500,000 a year? Could you imagine the price of tickets? Back down to $5 for a seat at a game and at that cost, the stadiums would be packed, no matter how bad the team is!

Naw, couldn't work because those cry baby so called athletes would have to make do with what ever their college degree is in.

Art History (putting out flyers for an upcoming arts/craft show)

Philosophy (a professional blogger)

American Studies (waiter at Fridays, Applebees or Chilis)

Music Therapy (yoga studio assistant)

Communications (selling beer cozies at spring break)

Dance (working as a stripper)

English Lit (mail room clerk)

Latin (Subway Sandwich Artist)

Film (can you say Gopher?)

Religion (you’ll probably end up working behind the desk of a Christian Science Reading Room. But on the other, you may end up with everlasting peace and spiritual enlightenment).

Perhaps you should be just as mad as the assh&le owners who dont have guns pointed at their heads when they pay these players huge bucks and then pass on the charges to joe fan?

I am not going to defend these basketball idiots with guns but the best of the best can earn top $ and since you and I dont have the skills to play pro sports we can't.
