Javaris Crittenton indicted on murder charges

What happened to Crittenton?

Postby hypotenuse on Fri Aug 13, 2010 11:21 am

I still think he can play, at a much higher level than Ebanks or Caracter can as well. Did the Lakers decide to go with cheaper talent or did they not want him because of his history?

I don't think you could call Blake cheaper talent. I think he's just the better fit. I'm sure Javaris recent gunplay history had something to do with the lack of interest. Plus, this is Phil's swan song we are built to win now and I believe Mitch feels that Bynum, Caracter, and Ebanks are a good start for the future. I like Crit but I also like Jeremy Lin and we didn't get either so I have to believe Mitch and company are fine with the backcourt after re-signing Shannon.

Apparently he's not over his injuries.

What happened to Critteron?


Asked by the guy with a gun for his avatar.

In all honesty, he's probably being blackballed, blacklisted, etc. Just like what happened to A.I. last year even though he eventually signed with the Grizzlies (for a few games) and the 76ers (where he eventually walked out on the team). Most teams stayed away from A.I., just like Crittenton for a reason.

It seems that he was injured, I read these news on last July 8th:

"Also, Javaris Crittenton isn't on the summer league roster because he's recovering from foot surgery"

This is the source:
http://lakersblog.latimes.com/lakersblo ... gency.html

I am agree, we have a great Team: Fisher-Kobe-Artest-Pau Gasol-Bynum (plus Odom, Blake...), but Javaris at a cheap price (close to Ebanks and Caracter) could be a good future addition (Crittenton-Shannon-Ebanks-Caracter-Bynum... it seems a young Team for the future).

Go Lakers !!

He was still recovering from a foot problem so he couldn't join the summer league squad.

I believe you meant Crittenton. And he hasn't been with us for a while, why bring him back now? Why would he be playing with the Lakers on the summer league roster? Did I miss something and did we resign him? If so, maybe he'll be playing for the L.A. Defenders, ha ha.
I love the NBA Dynasty Series: The Complete History of the Lakers, saw it free here. Awesome classic games on these DVDs...

Why do people on here overrate Crittendon? If he was so good, he would have gotten some burn on the lottery teams he played on. Fact is he just wasn't that good and then combine the baggage and there you are.

^^because everyone on this message board is an arm-chair GM and talent scout. 99% of this board has a man crush with Critt for some reason because he had like 5 good plays during preseason

I think Crittenton could be a decent NBA player still, but he has to mature and he has to get over the injuries that prevented him from playing SPL.

Crittenton's actually has a lot of talent. He's still young and the only team that ever let him play in the reg. season was Washington toward the end of the season two years ago and he had a decent run but nobody saw those games.

Memphis didn't let him play much because they had drafted Connely 3rd overall (lol).

His foot injury seems pretty bad if he still can't play. It's been like a year or so, I believe.

It's my first childhood crush the beautiful Alyssa Milano. If you look closely she's wearing a championship Lakers shirt from her signature line. I saw this picture in the Team LA website and I had to put her on my avatar.
