Wizards Players Slaps Babymam While Breastfeeding

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: I'm not sure what could be worse than slapping a woman while breastfeeding. This is an all time new low for NBA.

Javaris Crittenton to turn himself in, claims he’s innocent

Crittenton will be on a red-eye flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta and should arrive in his hometown "very early [Tuesday] morning," said attorney Brian Steel, retained by family members earlier Monday. "Mr. Crittenton wants to clear his name," Steel told the AJC. "He's innocent of the charges."

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: They found him, at least.

Two days ago Javaris Crittenton was charged with the murder of an Atlanta mother of four in a shooting that was apparently retaliation for a robbery.

The combo guard went missing until now. According to Crittenton's lawyer, he will turn himself in to the Atlanta authorities in an effort to prove his innocence.

Report: former NBA player Javaris Crittenton wanted for murder

Javaris Crittenton has been charged with murder after a woman was shot on an Atlanta street. Jullian Jones was shot and killed on August 19th. Police spokesman Carlos Campos said a murder warrant for the arrest of Crittenton had been issued and that he was not in custody.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Many felt Javaris Crittenton’s incident with Gilbert Arenas twenty months ago was unfortunate.

But nobody was hurt when Crittenton and Arenas brought guns into the Washington Wizards’ locker room and put them on a table when a dispute unfolded between the two guards.

How would the same people feel about reports Crittenton is wanted in the murder of an Atlanta mother of four?

One word: tragic.

A life is lost. And Crittenton, who claimed to have learned from the incident with Arenas, has made an awful mistake.

Grizzlies at fault for Allen-Mayo gambling scrap

Grizzles teammates O.J. Mayo and Tony Allen had to be separated during a physical encounter that stemmed from a card game on the team's charter flight Monday, according to team sources. Mayo owed Allen money from a card game called "Boo-Ray" and he became increasingly belligerent when asked to settle his debt.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Who exactly is to blame for Tony Allen and OJ Mayo scrapping over an unsettled debt on a team plane?

Well, Allen and Mayo have to shoulder a portion of the blame for acting in an unprofessional manner. However, so do the Memphis Grizzlies.

After all, most franchises have banned gambling. This was common sense after Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton drew guns on each other in the Washington Wizards’ locker room in attempt to settle a gambling debt.

Not the Grizzlies. They missed this tsunami sized warning sign. Of course, this wasn’t the first sign.

Years ago, Charles Oakley punched Tyrone Hill because he refused to ‘pay what he owed’ in a card game. ‘Oak’ and Hill were on different teams. They ‘happened’ to meet when their respected teams, the Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers, crossed path on the practice floor.

In short, players will act unprofessionally –if their team allows it. The Grizzlies allowed it. And now they have a mess on their hands.

Derek Fisher and Steve Blake perfect duo for Lakers

The Lakers signed guard Steve Blake this summer, an addition that will likely help give veteran Derek Fisher some rest. Andy Kamenetzky of ESPNLosAngeles.com writes that the Lakers may have finally found an option to start over Fisher.

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: The Los Angeles Lakers are expecting Derek Fisher to pass the baton to Steve Blake.
 
After all, Fisher is in his late thirties. Blake is an established pro, with a reputation for tenacity, intelligence, and feistiness.
 
Problem is, D-Fish' is a purple-and-gold cult hero, defying age with clutch shots and heady play.
 
For instance, Jordan Farmar and Javaris Crittenton were tabbed to replace the veteran. Both are with different teams, while Fisher - after much outcry - was re-signed this summer. 
 
Blake is a different breed, though. In December of 2007, he turned the Portland Trail Blazers' season around by participating in a practice that was more like Fight Club. He's also been known to train with MMA fighters.
 
Look for Blake to learn from and eventually replace Fisher. Like B.J. Armstrong replacing John Paxson, and Derek Fisher replacing Ron Harper, there will soon be a new lead guard in Phil Jackson's triple-post system.

And the world champion Lakers will only get stronger after this well-thought out transition.
