    Until that incident, Gilbert was one of my favorite NBA players.

    Reminds me of college and playing 'Guts' -- so many meltdowns when you had to match the pot.

    The article is good, but crazy! These guys had the world by the balls and lost it over a stupid card game and ego.

    In Crittenden's case, he went on to become a thug and is now serving 23 years for manslaughter of an innocent person. Imagine if he hadn't played that card game...maybe he'd have gone on to a mediocre NBA career and never gotten involved with gangs and drugs. Maybe that innocent woman would still be alive.

    If it weren't so tragic, it would be kinda funny. But its not.

    According to the article he had join the crips while he was a rookie in LA. Sounds like his career was going to go down the **** hole anyways.

    Then-commissioner David Stern suspended both for the rest of the season. Crittenton — who prosecutors alleged became a member of the Crips gang in Los Angeles after becoming a Laker two years earlier — never played in the NBA again.

    I guess it was not proven.

    "They all looked at each other and then they ran, the last man out locking the door behind him."

    And left the two inside with all those guns? LOL :D That looks awkward.

    This man always had a beautiful jumper. Damn those knee injuries, because he was a hell of a player in his prime.

    They totally redefined the saying, "That team has so many weapons!"
