If this situation goes down as many people are expecting, Javaris Crittenton may not be seeing the light of day for a long long time. (With the exception of yard duty, of course.)
Apparently, Crittenton thought he could just hop on a plane and catch a flight back to Atlanta where he could turn himself in to the local authorities to prove his innocence.
His plan didn’t work out the way he intended and the FBI cut him off at the pass.
Maybe it’s just me but I don’t get how a guy who’s face is plastered all over national TV and milk cartons across the country thinks he’d be able to waltz on a plane and catch a flight and not be spotted.
Dude, you’re a 6 ft 5in NBA player! The fact is that people are going recognize you wherever you go! So dusting off your Groucho Marx disguise from last year’s Halloween party isn’t going to make a difference.
I got a chuckle when I heard his attorney comment on the arrest by describing it as “very odd”. Mr. Steele, the arrest wasn’t odd.
The player formerly known as Gilbert Arenas’ ex- gun slinging partner developed a plan that lacked any in depth thought or introspection.
In other words – it was far from odd. It was just dumb.
So now we move onto the next messy chapter of this ordeal and wait for all the juicy details to come to light in the courts. In the meantime, we’ll hear from scores of past team mates, shocked school grade teachers and bitter ex-girlfriends who’ll give their thoughts on Dwight Howard’s former high school team mate.
The whole thing should prove to be very interesting.
Personally, I say we skip all the unnecessary details and get him to try on the black glove and see if it fits.
