Hey Gilbert Arenas, what are you doing?

Posted: October 18, 2010 in Uncategorized

Gilbert Arenas has had quite an interesting preseason.

The Washington Wizards guard, who has played in only 47 games in the last 3 seasons due to injuries and a highly controversial gun charge, is once again finding himself in the news for all the wrong reasons.

On October 6, Arenas was quoted saying, “Right now I’m out there to hit open shots, teach John the ins and the outs of the game, and then eventually go on and move on. I’m on my way.” Speaking about his new, highly publicized teammate, number 1 overall draft pick John Wall, Arenas is basically saying he’s ready to bounce out of the nation’s capital now that he’s no longer the most popular Wizard. Jealous much?

This odd interview was just the beginning of Gilbert’s shenanigans. On October 12, The Wizards faced off against the Atlanta Hawks in their preseason home opener. It was going to be his first game in the Verizon Center since his suspension. However, during pre-game shootaround, Arenas told coach Flip Saunders his knee was sore and that he wasn’t going to play. Nick Young played in his place.

The next day, Arenas shocked media reporters by telling them he faked an injury so his buddy Nick Young could get more playing time. “I told him I’ll go and fake an injury or say something’s wrong with me so you can start,” said Arenas in an interview with a local reporter.

What? Are you serious? Why not just tell your coach the truth? And if you are going to fake an injury, why tell the media about it when you know its going to be blown out of proportion? This guy is going nuts! After this nonsense, the Washington Wizards responded by hurting his pockets and fining Arenas $50,000. Ouch.

To make matters worse, just two days later, Arenas suffered a REAL injury. He injured his groin during their next preseason game against the New York Knicks. Poor guy. Things really aren’t going too well for him.

After being the laughing stock of the NBA so far this preseason, it will be interesting to see if Arenas can bounce back and compete at the level he did before his issues, when he was one of the top players in the league. Until then, keep an eye out for some more Arenas’ antics. Who knows what could be next.

Arenas seems very confused this preseason
