Almost every day a strange poker story comes out about players fighting or doing something crazy over a poker debt. The most recent crazy story comes from the NBA. Two Washington Wizards players ended up drawing guns on each other after one racked up a $25,000 card game debt and had not paid up.

Gilbert Arenas, a guard on the Washington Wizards, supposedly racked up a debt of $25,000 while playing poker with teammate Javaris Crittenton during a team charted flight. Apparently after this incident both teammates were in the locker room and Arenas pulled three guns and placed them on a chair by his team mate to intimidate him.

Crittenton was not intimidated and he ended up drawing his own gun. No shots were fired in the incident. Law enforcement is now looking into the incident. Apparently Arenas plays poker quite often as he has admitted to playing poker online in the locker room during half time at games. It looks as though this time it has gotten him in trouble.
