NBA Star Gilbert Arenas Suspended Indefinitely For Gun Fiasco

NBA star and former L.A. prep star Gilbert Arenas was suspended by the league indefinitely today. Allegedly, the talented and eccentric Arenas and Washington Wizards teammate Javaris Crittenton pulled guns on each other in the locker room last month over a gambling incident. A pre-game gun "skit" in the huddle yesterday led to today's statement from NBA head David Stern saying "Mr. Arenas" would get a "substantial suspension and perhaps worse," and the player's "ongoing conduct has led me to conclude that he is not currently fit to take the court in an NBA game."

I shot the above photo of Gilbert Arenas aka "Agent Zero" and "Hibachi" a couple years ago during the making of a video game. He was wearing a special suit that tracks natural movements for realistic rendering. I'm hoping he can come back strong from all this after the dust settles. Arenas made some bad choices recently, but he's definitely one of the more interesting sports figures today. He has publicly apologized and hopefully something good will come out of this episode in the end.
