How The Gilbert Arenas/Javaris Crittenton Dispute Began

The Associated Press has details about what actually went down between Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton:

Kavanaugh said the disagreement developed during a team flight back from Phoenix. The other player offered to settle matters with a fist fight, but Arenas, 28, said he was too old for that and suggested he would instead burn the other player’s car or shoot him in the face. The argument on the plane ended with the other player saying he would shoot Arenas in his surgically repaired knee.

Two days later, Kavanaugh said, Arenas brought at least one gun to the Verizon Center in a black backpack. He laid out four guns on a chair in front of the other player’s locker with a sign saying, “Pick one.”

When the other player asked, “What is this?,” Arenas responded: “You said you were going to shoot me. Pick one.”

The other player said he had his own gun, threw one of Arenas’s weapons across the room and then displayed his own firearm, Kavanaugh said.

The other player, presumably, is Javaris Crittenton. Assuming this is true, will we see anyone else argue for a gun fight over a fist fight because the person is “too old” for that?
