In the darkest episode of the year for the NBA, Gilbert Arenas was suspended 50 games after it was discovered he had up to four firearms in his locker at the Verizon Center. The sordid story read like a CSI: D.C. plot, with a dispute over a bet blowing up into a police investigation and reports of an Old West style showdown in the Wizards' locker room. Eventually, the NBA suspended Arenas for making light of the investigation on the court, as he waved "finger guns" during a pre-game skit. That suspension turned into a 50-game ban. The Wizards excised Arenas from their promotional materials and last week traded him to the Magic. Crittenton, meanwhile, has fallen out of the NBA. Numerous teams instituted rules against charter plane card games as a result of the incident.

SB Nation's Tom Ziller, naming Gun-Gate as the fourth-most important story of the year in the NBA.
