This is not a religious story. But I couldn’t pass it up.

One indication in sports that you’re whupping the other team good is when they start fighting with each other. What about when the guys on the other team pull guns on each other in the locker room? Maybe the sign of a season like the Washington Wizards are having.

Here’s the New Year’s report:

Guess they’re still the Bullets at heart.

NBA all-star Gilbert Arenas and his Washing ton Wizards teammate Javaris Crittenton drew guns on each other in the team’s locker room during a Christmas Eve dispute over a gambling debt, The Post has learned.

League sources say the pistol-packing point guards had heat ers at the ready inside the Verizon Center, the Washington, DC, home of the Wizards—whose name was changed from the Bullets over gun-violence concerns.

It was the three-time all-star Arenas, 27, who went for his gun first, sources said, drawing on the 22-year-old Crittenton, who quickly brandished a firearm as well. ...

“I’m not your punk!” Crittenton shouted at Arenas, according to a league source close to the Wizards.

Nobody likes a welcher, so I’m not surprised this got out of hand. Thankfully, Abe Pollin, one of the NBA’s legendary Jews, didn’t have to live to see this.
