Kobe & GiannaThe year 2020 should be a year of new beginnings, but nobody thought that this week, the world lost one of the most famous icons in the basketball world, and he's just at his early 40s - it's kinda ironic since there goes a saying "Life begins at 40", right?

January 26, 2020, Sunday was supposed to be a day filled with adrenaline-pumping competition on a basketball court. Instead it was a day tainted by a tragic accident that took nine lives and left the entire world, whether basketball fans or not, utterly heartbroken.

Poker game between NBA players degenerated

Posted on 03 February 2010 by "T".

If you ask Doyle Brunson how it was to play poker "back in the days", you will get to hear stories about people getting robbed and even killed over a game of poker. These days, however, it's quite safe to play poker in a casino or at a proper poker club. Of course, things still happens once in a while, but it's still much safer than how it used to be. Or is it?!?!

Not long ago, NBA players Gilbert Arenas & Javaris Crittenton played poker for high stakes on an airplane heading towards their next game. The game soon degenerated as Javaris Crittenton owed Gilbert Arenas more than $25,000 and refused to pay. Gilbert Arenas took up a gun and pointed it at Javaris. Javaris had no plans on paying Arenas, or at least not to show him that he was afraid. Therefore he took up his own gun and pointed it at his Javaris. However, the action stopped after this.

Today, both of them are friends again and none of them are afraid of losing their contracts with Washington Wizards even though they got suspended for a few games because of the small "incident".
