Gilbert Arenas will meet today with David Stern, Commissioner of the NBA, regarding his future with the league. The meeting relates to his December 21st gun incident in the Wizards locker room, when Arenas claims to have jokingly threatened teammate Javaris Crittenton with unlicensed handguns. Crittenton met with Stern yesterday regarding his role in the incident (Crittenton also brandished a handgun, and has plead guilty to a misdemeanor for his role and receiving probation). Arenas has missed 12 consecutive games since the gun incident occurred after an argument surrounding debts owed from Arenas to Crittenton during a card game. Arenas, who is coming back this year after two consecutive injury plagued seasons, is one of the league’s most dangerous players on the court, often bragging and talking trash during games. He was averaging 22.6 points per game and 7.2 assists per game before his indefinite suspension. Even with his offensive prowess, the Washington Wizards are attempting to use this incident as a reason to void the remaining $80 million on his contract. I’m sure that as soon as Commissioner Stern makes his decision on Arenas, the Wizards will follow suit.
