"NBA Lends Its Name and Its Stars to Campaign Against Gun Violence"
NY Times story here. Of course "Campaign Against Gun Violence" means "Campaign Against Gun Owners." If NBA actually wanted to combat gun violence, it'd dissolve itself.
Jayson Williams, Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Nets: convicted of manslaughter after fatally shooting his limo driver.
Art Long, Sacramento Kings, Philadelphia 76ers, and other teams: sentenced to seven years after being caught running a drug ring, while possessing an AK-47 and stolen pistol.
Raymond Felton, New York Knicks, busted on felony weapons charges.
Javaris Crittenton, LA Lakers and other teams, sentenced to 23 years after fatally shooting a woman, and being caught running a cocaine distribution ring.
Gilbert Arenas, Washington Wizards: convicted of felony carrying in DC, after a lockeroom argument over a gambling debt. (NBA did suspend him for a time).
Someone has created the NBA Crime Library, where you can research the 350 NBA players who have been charged with criminal acts. A simple search turns out 28 players with gun charges.
