Update on the Gilbert Arenas story: After his gun joke of December 21st, the one with real guns, the Washington Wizards point guard pointed finger pistols at teammates and the crowd at last night’s 76ers game. NBA Commissioner David Stern didn’t find the situation amusing. On Wednesday, his 28th Birthday, Mr. Arenas was suspended indefinitely, without pay, by Mr. Stern.
Gilbert Arenas had a $111 million six-year contract with the Wizards. Now he has essentially joined America’s unemployed. While this will be financially inconvenient, he really needs some court time — not on the hardwood, inside the big stone buildings.
