WASHINGTON POST Wizards beat writer Micheal Lee caught up to Gilbert Arenas today and asked him about Peter Vecsey’s claim in the NEW YORK POST today that he drew a gun on Javaris Crittenton over a gambling debt. Lee Tweets:

Gilbert Arenas Denies NY Post Story About Gun Confrontation

I grabbed Arenas after practice. He told me he is considering filing a lawsuit against the NY Post. “That’s not the real story,” he said.

Arenas: “I saw the story. Very compelling. Some real O.K. corral stuff.”

I posted earlier today that Vecsey’s story about the incident seemed to be based solely on a single Crittenton acquaintance. That doesn’t make it wrong, but Arenas obviously is now disputing Crittenton’s friend’s claim.

I also noted this morning that Vecsey gratuitously took an earlier Arenas quote out of context about guns and applied it to the reported situation involving Crittenton.

Next shoe to drop: other Wizard players coming forward to provide their version of events - if any of them saw anything.
