Javaris Crittenton’s arrest casts locker room incident in a more disturbing light

He was named a captain his sophomore year in high school, on a Georgia state championship team featuring Dwight Howard, a senior mentor to his teammate.

A member of the Future Business Leaders of America, Crittenton carried a 3.5 grade point average. He recruited to Georgia Tech by Paul Hewitt, the current George Mason coach. Hewitt declined comment Monday, perhaps having trouble with an incongruent thought – how the kid he knew didn’t quite match with the headline, “Crittenton Wanted in a Homicide.” ...

Little-known fact uncovered in court documents in the spring of 2010: Crittenton, via text message, asked to borrow thousands from Arenas to help pay his ill mother’s escalating medical bills. Just two months after their confrontation, Arenas obliged...

An NBA first-round draft choice, Crittenton, less than two years ago, laid his head on the pillows of Four Seasons and Ritz Calrtons. Today, he is in custody in a homicide case.

A mother of four is gone.

And the hoop dreams of a bright, young kid, who as a teen once lofted alley-oop passes to a gangly Dwight Howard for bedazzling dunks, is all but dead.

What a vicious cycle. From nothing to something. And back to nothing again. What a sinister omen those guns in the locker room may soon turn out to be.
