According to ESPN just minutes ago, the NBA has announced that Wizards’ player Gilbert Arenas will be suspended indefinitely without pay. This is a rather shocking and unexpected move as a result of his ridiculous gun pulling stunt that took place in the locker room of the Verizon Center on Christmas Eve. He later came out and said it was all a joke, but I don’t think many people really buy that.
Quotes from the ESPN article and the AP:
“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,” commissioner David Stern said in a statement Wenesday. “Accordingly, I am suspending Mr. Arenas indefinitely, without pay, effective immediately pending the completion of the investigation by the NBA.”
