If you missed it, Javaris Crittenton is tied up in a pretty awful situation right now. He was arrested Friday night for allegedly shooting and killing a mother in a drive-by in Atlanta.
Crittenton of course made a name for himself in the NBA in two very bad ways: He was a first-round bust and he brought a gun into a locker room. The other player in the gun situation was Gilbert Arenas, who put out a simple tweet in regards to the Crittenton news. (Via Jose3030):
Arenas quickly deleted the tweet, probably for smart reasons. Hard to really know what Arenas meant by that tweet, so I'll just leave it alone. Draw your own conclusions there, I suppose.
As the Washington Post notes, Crittenton attempted a comeback with the Charlotte Bobcats and seemed to have his head on straight and his act together. He said then, "Use wisdom in everything and just don’t get caught up in foolishness and nonsense and crazy people around you ... It was a bad decision on both ends and we’re trying to move forward with our careers and our lives.”
For shame. There's still a lot of information to process and nothing is set in stone, but it's not looking good for Crittenton. And even worse, it looks like he may not have learned his lesson.
