Gilbert Arenas may have pressured Javaris Crittenton into cover-up

Mar 23, 2010, 4:14 PM EDT

In the sentencing memo by U.S. prosecutors for Gilbert Arenas’ case, a wrinkle has been revealed. Prosecutors outlined a text sent to Crittenton which they say was forwarded on behalf of Arenas, telling Javaris Crittenton not to mention their dispute over a card game which sparked the debacle.

That Arenas isn’t facing further charges for interfering in an investigation is stunning, and this could impact how much time Arenas receives when he’s sentenced on Friday. If true, the allegation also will impact Arenas’ attempts to recover his career. While Arenas has been handed a suspension by David Stern for the rest of the season, there’s nothing limiting further punishment if the league was unaware of an attempt to cover up an investigation using another player.

The level to which Arenas mishandled this situation is truly stunning.

    Unfortunately, a desperate deed calls for desperate actions. Why can’t those who are blessed with a talent and given the ability to use that talent and reap its rewards learn to just be thankful. Is life all that boring for those who have money and fame then give it all up and be poor and see how challenging life can be. What you do in the dark will always come into the light…it never fails.

    A doctor told me that living in a sealed house like Areas did 2 years ago produced carbon monoxide poisoning that damaged Areas’ brain. For the average person , the effect would have been small, but due to Areas’s small brain to begin with, the effects were massive.. He is to begin rehab at the same place that Tiger went to in Mississippi. But he will undergo surgery to have a lower class primate’s brain replace his own. The operation will now be covered under the new national health care bill. He will started his basketball rehab in China playing with Marbury, who had the same surgery after refusing to resign with the Celtic before they won it all in 2009.
