Overtime: Arenas Suspended Indefinitely

By Melva N. Lloyd

As expected, the NBA has suspended Washington Wizards’ guard Gilbert Arenas indefinitely.

The suspension came after Arenas allegedly brandished his firearm on fellow teammate Javaris Crittenton during a locker room dispute over a gambling debt.

Commissioner David Stern made the decision on Wednesday to sideline the three-time All-Star amongst an ongoing investigation into the altercation.

“[Arenas’] ongoing conduct has led me to conclude that he is not currently fit to take the court in an NBA game…acordingly, I am suspending Mr. Arenas indefinitely, without pay, effective immediately pending the completion of the investigation by the NBA.”
