I think a lot of was were disappointed when he dropped out of the SPL on his own. I think he would have made a decent backup PG. And I think he would have developed well if he had stayed on this team instead of going to Grizz and then to Wizards. Gilbert Arenas is not a leader, he's a clown, so you can never motivate yourself or follow a guy like that as a role model.

ATLANTA -- An arrest warrant has been issued for former Georgia Tech star basketball player Javaris Crittenton in connection with the shooting death of 22-year-old Jullian Jones, Atlanta police said.

The shooting happened shortly before 10 p.m. Aug. 19 in the 2900 block of Macon Drive in southwest Atlanta.

Investigators said Jones was walking with others when she was shot. She later died.

Channel 2's Ryan Young learned about the latest developments early Friday.

Police said they don't believe Jones was the intended victim.

Police said the motive appears to be retaliation for a robbery that occurred in April in which Crittendon was a victim.

Crittendon is an NBA player who most recently played with the Washington Wizards.

Actually it was though

I seem to recall Javaris loading it in front of him. Apparently Gilbert didn't believe he had the guts(allegedly)

This isn't a big shock. He never seemed to escape his background....... Too bad if it turns out to be true....he seemed to have some talent that was never fully realized.

Holy crap! In the back of my mind up until about a year ago I kept waiting for this guy to get a break and really turn it into something with a club. He was supposed to be on the Lakers pre-season squad again for crissakes and then something happened and he wasn't.

now will this finally end the "lets bring Javaris back" threads? Critt is just a stupid thug. i don't know why any of you wanted anything to do with him after the Gilber situation. he's a lousy basketball player, and an even lousier human being.

R.I.P. victim(an appearent mother of three).

i also have to add that it's so shameful that he ever wore Purple and Gold.

Not trying to make light of the situation, but that Pau Gasol trade just keeps looking better.

Bust + murderer + retired guy's contract + Gasol's skilled brother for Pau Gasol

I gave Javaris the benefit of the doubt in the Gilbert situation, but really didn't think he had a screw loose like it seems he does.

:man4:

I viewed Critt' as a sympathetic figure in the Arenas / Locker room situation. I didn't realize that he had a rep as a thug.

Owning a gun doesn't make you a thug nor does shooting one. Who you shoot it at and under what circumstances do. I didn't know Critt' "got down like that".

Wait, wait wait. Javaris looked liked a nice dude. I remember the GIlbert situation, but what exactly did they do with them? Did they threaten eachother with them? or just play around (obviously stupid)

It was over a gambling debt Gilbert dared Javaris to load the gun and point it at him.

Here's more. Apparently the woman was not the intended target. :mad1:

http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news?slug=ap-crittentonarrested

ATLANTA (AP)—Police said late Friday that former NBA player Javaris Crittenton(notes), who was once suspended by the league over guns in the locker room, has been charged with murder after a woman was shot on an Atlanta street.

Police spokesman Carlos Campos said police have secured a murder warrant for the arrest of Crittenton, who played at Georgia Tech, in connection with the shooting death of 22-year-old Jullian Jones on Aug. 19. Campos said Crittenton is not in custody and is wanted.

Atlanta police Maj. Keith Meadows told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Friday night that Crittenton is believed to be in the Los Angeles area. He said the FBI is involved in the investigation.

Jones, a mother of four, was walking with a group of people on the city’s southwest side when a dark-colored SUV drove by and she was shot by someone inside the vehicle, police said.

Investigators say they don’t believe the woman was the intended target. Campos said the motive appears to be retaliation for a robbery in April, in which Crittenton was a victim, Campos said in a statement.

Messages left for an agent who has represented Crittenton were not immediately returned Friday night.

Crittenton most recently played in the NBA with the Washington Wizards and was involved in a gun altercation with Gilbert Arenas(notes). He was on the roster of the NBDL’s Dakota Wizards last season.

Crittenton didn’t play last season because of an ankle injury. He was given a 38-game suspension by the NBA after he and Arenas acknowledged bringing guns into the locker room following a dispute stemming from a card game on a team flight.

Crittenton pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge on Jan. 25, 2010 and received probation. He wasn’t re-signed by the Wizards.

The Charlotte Bobcats signed Crittenton to a non-guaranteed contract before last season but he was waived Oct. 15.

Crittenton was the 19th overall pick by the Los Angeles Lakers in 2007. He played little with Los Angeles and was sent to Memphis in the Pau Gasol(notes) deal his rookie year. He was traded to Washington in December 2008.
