Crabbe was a star athlete at Price High School, becoming the Gatorade Player of the Year in 2010. As a junior, he helped the Price Knights win a CIF Southern Section division VI title. During his senior year, he won the CIF Southern Section division 4AA title and a CIF division 4 state championship. Crabbe noted that playing at a high level requires extra hours of practice and sacrifice. “You can’t always be a part of the fun things that your friends and all of that they want to do,” he said. “You have to sacrifice the fun times to get in the gym and just put in the work so that you can perfect your craft and become the best that you can be.”
Arenas wrote on Instagram that Carter was taking a spot on an NBA roster when, in theory, that spot could go to a young player fighting for his dream. Arenas defended his comments Saturday and made it clear he has no personal vendetta toward Carter and thinks it’s amazing he’s still one of the world’s best basketball players because he’s in the NBA. But Arenas thinks Carter should step aside. “Let’s be honest here,” Arenas said, “You have Vince, or you have this young guy. You’re going to choose Vince. He’s put 20 years in. His 5 percent is better than your 100 percent because his 5 percent is going to be smart basketball, so the coach is going to overlook young talent until they get that experience. When you’re the last guy on the bench or the guy who got cut, you look at someone like Vince and say, ‘Come on, dude.’
“Vince should be on the bench as a coach or in the office giving his input,” Arenas said. “That’s a roster spot. You have kids who are 27 in (the Big3) that should be in the NBA. Why are they not in the NBA? It’s not that I don’t like that he’s playing, it’s just that I had to fight from the beginning. You see a guy who is over the hill already and think, ‘I’m better than you.’ But the coach isn’t going to put me in, and you have no reason to still be playing. You’re not playing for anything, but in his mind, he’s playing for the title of most seasons played.”
