Gilbert Arenas

A rep for the company gave TMZ this statement: "In response to Gilbert Arenas' guilty plea to felony charges, adidas has terminated its agreement with the athlete effective immediately."

DEFENITION: Thug - A cruel or vicious ruffian, robber, or murderer.

Now does Gilbert Arenas fit that description? I'll answer for you guys...HE DOES NOT! He's a young kid (black/white doesn't matter) with a lot of money who made a bad descision. Interesting to me how white folks label black men "thugs" when they make mistakes or make bad descisions.

Now having said this... one person I know that fits this description is Bush! Robbed Iraq, Murdered Iraqians and Americans, without hesitation. So people stop being racist and be realistic when you speak. Use your brains and stop looking at color when making proper assessments.

GOOD! Maybe it will send a message to any other athletes, who think they are cool or "thugs" and have guns, knives, or any other weapons on NBA premises.

Good for his dumb ass.

Man had a $11 million dollar contract to play basketball(which I don't think is a real job anyway) and blew is all away for having a gun in the locker room, which he knew he was not suppose to do, all because he was supposedly playing a joke on another baller over some minor crap between them.

How freaking dumb can you be. I don't feel sorry for him at all.

Adidas dropped his stupid ass and if he has any more sponsers, they will follow suit. Clown.

Q    

Now do the right thing NBA Commissioner David Stern, expel Arenas for Life from the NBA...it must be done. Other Thug wanna be's still havent gotten the message the paying customers dont want thugs or thug behavior.

Tiger Woods and Arenas must serve as the poster boys for losing large amounts of respect, legacy, and money.

No more covering for these bums either---about time sports reporters start telling the truth about these bums to their readers.

The NBA, a league whose best athletes are black athletes, most of which didn't graduate college. A lot of players came from bad backgrounds, and the culture around the sport is closely associated with the hip-hop music. They make a lot more money than you, and that's not acceptable. Just a league full of thugs. Really, 5 NBA players can do something and it serve as proof the league is full of thugs. Right? I mean, that's only logical. Nice generalization. Come the hell on, the bigotry has to stop. Anytime something happens to one of its players, the "NBA is full of overpaid thugs" chants start coming out. Please, tell us how you really feel. Generalize the entire league based on a couple of people. Just like all republicans are Rush Limbaugh.

Gilbert Arenas is NOT a thug. His behavior wasn't even thuggish. It was idiotic and irresponsible. Seeing "black man" "has money" and "gun" doesn't automatically mean thug. And I'm not excusing what he did.
