Gilbert Arenas Suspended Indefinitely

1/6/2010 6:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gilbert ArenasThe NBA has suspended Washington Wizards star Gilbert Arenas indefinitely.

In a statement, NBA commissioner David Stern said:

"Although it is clear that the actions of Mr. Arenas will ultimately result in a substantial suspension, and perhaps worse, his ongoing conduct has led me to conclude that he is not currently fit to take the court in an NBA game ... Accordingly, I am suspending Mr. Arenas indefinitely, without pay, effective immediately pending the completion of the investigation by the NBA."

Arenas is under investigation for bringing guns to the Verizon Center (where the Wizards play) and allegedly getting into a standoff with teammate Javaris Crittenton.

BTW -- Today is Gilbert's 28th birthday. Happy birthday!

Good!!
This has nothing to do with the game of basketball. This has to do with an adult breaking the law. Not only that, but an adult that young children and young adults look up to.
These sports professionals need to be held accountable for their actions.

This guy and any others like him need to have him/their contracts voided by the NBA. It's time for Americans to wake-up and stop paying monies out of average salaries to support hoods (black or white) who are being paid millions of dollars to behave like criminals and play in professional sports.

Good! This idiot thought it was freakin' funny and was laughing with the press. He needs to be taught a lesson, he's had trouble with gun violations before. What an idiot.

If Stern is going to suspend Arenas because he is not currently fit to take the court in an NBA game - why is Shaq still around?

It's his own fault. The commissioner was gonna wait for the authorities to finish their investigation before making a decision, but last night Arenas was making light of the situation, joking around with his teammates and reporters. How stupid can you be? He got what he deserves.

Like I said if this was anyone else with just a regular job and we brought a gun into are work place we would be either laying in the hospital with bullets in are a*s from the cops are in prison already...They need to take this situation a little bit more seriously...Yea he didn't hurt nobody but it is only fair that he is treated as every other human on this earth.
