Javaris Crittenton Brings New Meaning To The Term "Shooting" Guard

(ESPN) ATLANTA -- Javaris Crittenton, the former NBA player once suspended by the league for bringing a gun into the Washington Wizards' locker room, has been charged with murder in the shooting of a woman on an Atlanta street. Police have secured a murder warrant for the arrest of Crittenton in connection with the shooting death of 22-year-old Jullian Jones on Aug. 19. Jones, a mother of four, was walking with a group of people on the city's southwest side when she was shot by someone inside a dark-colored SUV, police said. Investigators say they don't believe the woman was the intended target. Campos said the motive appears to be retaliation for a robbery in April, in which Crittenton was a victim.

Thatta boy Javaris! Way to step out from the shadows and make a name for yourself! From now on you will no longer be known as "the other player" in that Gilbert Arenas locker room gun standoff of '09. Sure you jumped into the kiddie pool head first with a first degree murder charge, but still, at least your on the radar now. But if there's one thing I would have advised young Javaris on beforehand, it would have been to go to the old shooting range before you start painting the town red. The guy's a lifetime 44% shooter from the field, but 0% when it comes to hitting his targets with the heater. For shame.
