New SI.com Column on Impact of Javaris Crittenton's Plea Deal on NBA Career of Gilbert Arenas

I have a new SI.com column on the impact of Javaris Crittenton's plea deal on Gilbert Arenas. Here's an excerpt:

* * *

Crittenton will also meet with NBA commissioner David Stern, who has suspended Arenas indefinitely. Crittenton's comments during the meeting could damage Arenas' chances for reinstatement if he portrays Arenas as a dangerous bully or aggressor. The Wizards may also find that Crittenton's comments lend justification for a termination of Arenas' contract under Clause 16 of the Uniform Player Contract, a topic I detailed in a previous column.
