'Gunsmoke,' NBA-style Is that all there was? The Gilbert Arenas - Javaris Crittenton incident, which looked like the Gunfight at the NBA Corral, now looks more like the comic duel in "Love and Death" between the Woody Allen character and Count Anton Inbedkov, rivals for the notorious Countess Alexandrovna. As scary as it is for children to play with guns, they don't seem to have drawn down on each other, as reported by a single outlet, the New York Post, and recycled endlessly.

The NBA started the new decade in lockdown as league officials and Washington, D.C., law enforcement agencies investigated a report that Wizards teammates Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton drew pistols and pointed them at each other in an argument in the dressing room at the Verizon Center. CBS Sports had previously reported that D.C. police were investigating reports that Arenas and Crittenton had brought guns into the dressing room. Arenas acknowledged he had three pistols in the safe in his locker, saying he put them there to keep them away from his young children.

Andrew Bynum eased his way down the hallway inside Staples Center after the Lakers stirring, last-second 87-86, victory over the Clippers Wednesday night, his mind now on injured teammate Derrick Caracter. Caracter went down in the first quarter with a sprained left ankle, leaving the Lakers even more short-handed with big men because Bynum remains out while he rehabilitates his surgically repaired right knee and backup center Theo Ratliff remains out after left-knee surgery. Bynum, a 7-foot center, had already changed his timetable on when he might return to play, moving the date up. So he was asked if he felt any more pressure, now that Caracter is out, to return even sooner ?

SAN FRANCISCO -- The doors to the Lakers' shoot-around opened, and there was Dwight Howard working on a series of mid-range jumpers. From 14 feet. Sometimes 16. A few from 18 feet. "He can make those," Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni said Monday morning, sounding hopeful. Improving his outside touch can only help Howard offensively. He has been a diminishing star late in games. He had no fourth-quarter shots in the Lakers' loss Friday to Washington and also none a week ago in their loss to Phoenix.
