Because he mocked the entire situation.
Because he made fun of a serious thing.
Because he didn't seem to think he did anything wrong.
Because he thumbed his nose at David Stern.
A yearlong suspension seemed like silly talk initially. Then, Gilbert Arenas acted the fool, and showed no true remorse for bringing in the gangster starter kit into an NBA locker room.
Then Gunsmoke Arenas mocked Stern and a serious legal investigation into his actions by acting out gunplay during pre-game drills on Tuesday night. Arenas didn't give a damn. He never did.
Let's be clear. Arenas isn't a thug. Arenas is about as gangsta as Carlton from "The Fresh Prince." He's a fake tough guy. Cardigan sweaters have more roughage than Arenas.
But he is a fool for his actions and an even bigger one for mocking a serious thing.
Arenas showed not just a lack of class or respect for gun control laws but he also ignored the area he plays in has traditionally been devastated by gun violence which is the reason for D.C.'s strict gun control laws. It's why the Bullets changed their name to the Wizards, Gilbert.
Arenas is likely gone for the season and this isn't Stern's fault.
This is all on Arenas.
