Some card game called Bourré and inter-team gambling debts led to a guns drawn locker room showdown between Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton of the Wizards. However, that by itself did not lead to a suspension until the above picture of Arenas pretending to fire his six shots to the wind surfaced. So, the actual criminal act of keeping what I'm sure is an unregistered firearm at work and drawing down on someone isn't worthy of a suspension, but joking about it after is? I really don't need anymore reasons to not watch the NBA, but their handling of this and many other situations is a joke.
I think I've mentioned this before... Once you become a professional athlete making millions of dollars it's probably time to put down your gats and stop being a thug. Do you really need to be strapped at the arena? Has the team mascot been threatening you?
NBA - Swatting bats and popp'n caps. Fun for the whole family.
