Washington, DC -- January 27, 2010 -- Ken Wainstein, attorney for Gilbert Arenas, stated today:
"Mr. Arenas respects Commissioner Stern's decision to issue a suspension for the remainder of the season. Mr. Arenas recognizes that his actions were a serious violation of the law and league rules and were detrimental to the NBA and its reputation. He accepts full responsibility for what he did, and takes no issue with the length of the suspension or the process that led to the Commissioner's decision. It is Mr. Arenas' hope that this punishment will serve an important purpose, as a strong reminder of the responsibility that he and all NBA players have to set the right example with their conduct on and off the court. As such, Mr. Arenas has asked the Players Association not to challenge the suspension.
Mr. Arenas appreciates the careful and thoughtful handling of this matter by the Commissioner and his staff, and he is grateful for the Commissioner's willingness to meet with him earlier today."
