Escape to L.A.: Ex-Wizards Arenas, Young and Crittenton are Coolin’ and Hoopin’

Nick Young turned 28 years old last Saturday. I know, where did all the time go? When Gilbert Arenas turned 28, he was suspended indefinitely by David Stern. Young, on the other hand, had a birthday party at a chic Hollywood club called Lure. The bash ended up being a hot gathering spot for celebs and NBA players. I’ll let “AllHipHop.com” tell it:

This past Saturday LA’s Toxic Day Party, seemingly the place to be every Saturday in LA, was more turnt than ever. From Draya and her “Fine Ass Girls” crew to Fabolous, Hit Boy, The Game and NBA ballers James Harden, Nick Young and Brandon Jennings, Toxic Day Party at Lure Patio was Hollywood’s hottest summer hang out this past week.

DJ Drama had the crowd going wild as he had LA native Problem perform his smash hit, “Like What,” while Nick Young popped endless bottles of Ace of Spades Rose’ to celebrate his birthday. On any given Saturday you can find Karrueche and Christina Milian sitting pretty, as Teyana Taylor dances and toasts with friends. NFL player DeSean Jackson, Justin Combs, Too Short, Eva Marcelle, and Kevin McCall were also amongst the celebs who joined in on the fun.

Kenyon Martin and Dorrell Wright also partied it up with Swaggy P. Photographer Cassy Athena documented the good times with money shots.

As I rolled through photos of Young posing in his normal, and hilarious, ways, I came across a few that made me do a double take. Is this who I think it is?

Oh my gawd, it is…

Javaris “Pick 1?“ Crittenton! His beef with Gilbert Arenas led to Agent Zero’s downfall, which has been overshadowed by his own major problems.

And you thought being out on bail for murder charges means you have to keep a low profile? Think Again. J-Critt can’t let Jennings and Young have all the shirtless fun.

There were no pictures of Arenas at Young’s shindig, but Gilbert, the “weirdo,” is in Los Angeles and playing in the Drew League. Gilbert’s team, MHP, is 1-2 through three weekends of summer-league play. But Hibachi is sizzling, not to mention still collecting big, fat checks from former NBA employers—to the tune of $21 million. Arenas had 30 points and 12 rebounds last weekend. Young is also on Gil’s squad, but will not play until after July 1st.

It appears Gilbert still wants to be number zero.
