UPDATE: It’s official, Arenas and Javaris Crittenton both gone for the rest of the season.
Michael Lee of the WASHINGTON POST reports:
A person familiar with today’s meeting between Gilbert Arenas and NBA Commissioner David Stern said the Wizards’ three-time all-star guard requested to be suspended for the remainder of the season and sources said that Stern plans to abide by the request.
According to the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity, Arenas also told Stern that he would tell the players’ union not to fight the suspension.
Stern will announce his ruling later this afternoon.
Mind runs wild with those requests from Arenas.
