In the wake of the Paul Pierce scandal where he got fired from his full time job as an ESPN analyst for going live with a room full of strippers, we take a look at other sports celebs who got fired for doing the dumbest things.
- Gilbert Arenas
Gilbert Arenas was a sharpshooting point guard for the Wizards, but he did go a bit overboard.
An All-Star career affected due to injuries and, more importantly, threatened a teammate Javaris Crittenton with a set of guns. Gilbert was standing in front of his two locker stalls, the ones previously used by Michael Jordan, with four guns on display. Javaris was standing in front of his own stall, his back to Gilbert. “Hey, Motherf*cka, come pick one,” Gilbert told Javaris while pointing to the weapons. “I’m going to shoot your [expletive] with one of these.”
Gilbert was suspended for the remainder of the 2009-10 season.
