Gilbert Arenas Dodges Bullet in Sentencing

3/26/2010 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gilbert Arenas got a huge break today -- he won't be going to jail.

Arenas was just sentenced to 30 days in a halfway house for his gun-wielding locker room confrontation last year with one of his Washington Wizards teammates.

Arenas pled guilty on January 15 to one felony count of carrying a pistol without a license.

Prosecutors were gunning for three months in jail.

Q    

David Stern, jewish commissioner for a nearly all black NBA, wants them all to run around in little bar mitzvah suits when they arent playing but are in public so they dont look like thugs, but never covered guns not allowed to be in the locker room with them.

Stern only wanted money for himself, the owners and his assistant whom he transferred to run the NHL, he's done so much to create a bad boy image for the NBA he himself should be up on charges. He's a disgrace to what he's allowed to happen under his watch--the cheating and betting refs, the fixed games, the owners in collusion with one another and the thugs that have taken over the game. Michael, Bird and Magic saved the game under his early watch, yet he let it become the convict league it is now.

And shame on a judicial system that lets a man walk on this charge..I hope if he ever pulls a gun on another human being, the other guy eliminates Arenas from us all.

Stern, please retire, you're old, not with it, far removed in a socio eco way from the employees of your eague and its truly a cesspool of men who glorify violence and berate women.
