Wizards Links: More Javaris Crittenton Fallout And Eurobasket Previews

Today's links, featuring more fallout from the sad Javaris Crittenton situation.

  • Crittenton's lawyer says he finds it "very odd" that the FBI arrested his client in Los Angeles rather than let his client fly back to Atlanta to turn himself in.  You know what would have been odd?  Letting a guy wanted by the FBI fly commercial while at-large. [Atlanta Journal-Constitution]
  • In case you missed it earlier, here's Mike Wise's wonderful Crittenton column. [Washington Post]
  • Kelly Dwyer wonders if GunGate pushed Crittenton down a really bad path.  The headline is more inflammatory than the piece itself. [Ball Don't Lie]
  • Holly MacKenzie focuses on the line in Wise's column about how Gilbert Arenas paid for Crittenton's mother's medical bills two months after the incident. [The Basketball Jones]
  • Brendan Haywood to Wise and Holden Kushner on 106.7 The Fan: "There are some people I've played with where I could be like, 'Yeah, I could see that happening.' But Javaris wasn't one of them." [Audio]
  • Previews of Eurobasket Group B, which includes Kevin Seraphin's France team. Play begins tomorrow at 10:45 a.m. on ESPN3.com. [Tom Ziller, The Painted Area]
  • Reminder: Trevor Booker is playing in that D.C.-Baltimore exhibition tonight, featuring LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony.  Full rosters here.  [SB Nation D.C.]
  • Pretty cool interview with Bucks assistant GM Jeff Weltman about how they use analytics.  The Wizards, like every other team in the league, have stepped up in this area, but still have even more room to improve. [Brew Hoop]
  • Dan Grunfeld, who is both a professional basketball player and the son of the Wizards' GM, is doing a weekly feature for SB Nation on European basketball and a bunch of other stuff.  Here's his first feature, where he compares an NBA road trip and a European road trip. [SB Nation]
  • Finally, here's a report from Game 1 of the Goodman League finals, which I attended last night.  Durant was pretty spectacular, leading his team to a blowout win.  There are some great pictures in this piece.  I have some less amazing ones I took on my phone below the jump. [Severna Park Voice]
