David Stern Empties One Arena(s) — Or At Least His Bank Account

leave a comment »

So a few days ago I made a joke about the Gilbert Arenas gun situation. Now who’s laughing?

NBA commissioner David Stern has indefinitely suspended Gilbert Arenas, saying the Washington Wizards guard is “not currently fit to take the court” for a game. Stern says in a statement Wednesday that Arenas’ actions will “ultimately result in a substantial suspension, and perhaps worse.”

Because Arenas violated NBA rules by bringing guns into Washington’s locker room, Stern decided to punish Arenas now. He says the suspension begins immediately.

Stern says he originally planned to wait for the criminal investigation to be completed before taking action, and directed the Wizards to do the same.

I apply the Leonard Little test to this situation. Is bringing a gun to work worse than getting shit-faced, getting in a car an killing someone? I’d say no. Then give him Little received 90 days in jail, four years probation and 1,000 hours of community service — if even that.

I have no opinion on Gilbert. Guy was a good scorer. Got hurt a bunch. Made zany Internet comments. Of course it’s funny to hear today’s lineup of ESPN commentators react in HORROR at Gilbert’s actions. Especially since he did some stupid “bang bang” action with his fingers at a recent pre-game introduction after reading some hippie lawyer-made statement saying how sorry he was for the whole thing. Whatever. I don’t care.
