Arenas said on the “I Am Athlete” podcast that released Monday that he and Crittenton are still friends despite the 2009 gambling disagreement that led to the two Wizards players drawing guns on each other in the locker room.
“We talk once a week,” Arenas said. “It’s just like when we were teammates. ‘Man, what do you think about this series? What do you think about this series?’ … We just talk about basketball.”
The infamous locker room incident led to lengthy suspensions for both players. Arenas would play his last NBA season two years later, while Crittenton wound up in prison after being accused of killing a woman. In 2015, Crittenton pleaded guilty to manslaughter and is currently in the middle of a 23-year prison sentence.
