Gilbert Arenas Says He Talks to Javaris Crittenton About Basketball Not Him Being in Jail For Murder

Gilbert Arenas has granted an exclusive interview to “I am athlete” show on YouTube where he spoke about his relationship with Javaris Crittenton after the gun incident. According to him, he still talks to Javaris.

Vlad reports that;

Earlier this year, Gilbert Arenas spoke about a gun incident where he was charged with a felony and was handed a suspension from former NBA Commissioner. Since then, Arenas has spoken candidly about the incident and how it affected Javaris Crittenton, who has since gotten 23 years in prison.

Arenas said that Crittenton was his “young boy,” noting that he still speaks with him. Arenas talked about a moment where he helped Crittenton’s mother, who needed neck surgery. “We wasn’t getting NBA checks anymore, so his mother needed surgery for her neck. He asked me…”

He continued saying he took care of Crittenton because nobody wanted to work with him following the incident. “Even to this day, I send him cell phones.” When asked if he and Crittenton still speak, Arenas said, “We talk once a week, it’s just like were teammates. ‘What you think about this series, what you think about this?’ We just talk basketball.”

If you weren’t aware of why Crittenton is in prison.

Former NBA player and Georgia Tech star Javaris Crittenton pleaded guilty in court Wednesday to the 2011 murder of a mother of four.

Crittenton, an alleged gang member — was accused of carrying out the shooting death of Atlanta mother Julian Jones. Prosecutors claimed Crittenton was aiming for the man who allegedly robbed him days earlier.

Crittenton’s cousin, who was in the car at the time of the shooting, was sentenced to three years in custody.

In court Wednesday, Crittenton made a tearful apology to the family. Crittenton accepted a 23-year sentence as part of the deal.
