Arenas should consider himself lucky. Arenas isn’t hood and what we allegedly know about Crittenton he wasn’t the one to mess with over money.
Whereas Arenas is one of those guys who had guns, but never had the heart to shoot them, we can’t say they same about Crittenton. Arenas has an interesting take on what happened to Crittenton after the locker room gun incident.
Larry Brown Sports has the details.
With Crittenton currently mixed up in a murder investigation, Mike Wise of the Washington Post passed along some tidbits from a conversation he had with Arenas a while back. Here is what Gilbert had to say when he was asked if he had spoken to Crittenton since the incident which resulted in both of their suspensions.
“No, but I heard he became more hard,” Arenas said. “You know, like some people turn over a new leaf when something bad like that changes their life. I heard Javaris went the other way — he became more ’hood, more hardened in that way. I don’t know if that’s the case, but that’s what I heard.”
I have heard that theory before, but moreso with career criminals not NBA players, but it certainly is possible. Crittenton would be one of the dumbest individuals on the planet if he did what he is accused of, but if you go with what Arenas heard, maybe he thought he was untouchable.
But as we all know everyone can be touch.
