    NEW YORK -- The NBA has suspended the Washington Wizards' Gilbert Arenas indefinitely.

    "Although it is clear that the actions of Mr. Arenas will ultimately result in a substantial suspension, and perhaps worse, his ongoing conduct has led me to conclude that he is not currently fit to take the court in an NBA game," commissioner David Stern said in a statement Wednesday. "Accordingly, I am suspending Mr. Arenas indefinitely, without pay, effective immediately pending the completion of the investigation by the NBA."

    Do better ?

    The guy doesn't even know when he's coming back.
    His career as a Wizard is probably over, along with his mega contract.

    If he is suspended without pay for the season, does that remove his salary from Washington for salary cap and luxury tax purposes?

    I will be shocked if he is allowed to play basketball again this year.

    If his contract is terminated I will feel bad for though. I mean his mom only wanted to be in his life once he got famous.

    Shaq piped his babymom and everyone found out.

    He has had injury problems.

    And now this.

    I don't feel sorry for him...he is RICH, every other man including myself has to work hard and if we were to do such a thing I'd be typing this message from a jail cell. **** him.

    So the first report that said Javaris Critterton also pulled his gun out must not be true?

    Because if he did he should also be suspended.

    Shaq did what to his Babymom? :confused:

    Sucks for him to lose millions over a bad decision but yes ordinary Joe would be feeling the pain from a jail cell.

    I think he is suspended because he was mocking Stern.
