Gilbert Arenas - Agent Zero’s salary has a lot of zeros

by james on July 7th, 2008

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

Gilbert Arenas is thinking “Ok, got the money, now how to get the NBA title?”

Ok, so it is a bad pun in the title. Who are we kidding here? Agent Zero should not be this expensive.

The unpredictable three-time All-Star point guard, in vintage Agent Zero fashion, told the Post and the Washington Times on Thursday that he has agreed to re-sign for $111 million over six years, considerably less than the maximum deal he said the Wizards offered him when the free agency period began on Tuesday.

Arenas negotiated the deal from China, where is traveling as part of promotional tour for a shoe company, and did so without an agent.


Let’s see, the Washington Wizards with Antawn Jamison and Gilbert Arenas will win how many titles with this twosome? Maybe that is what the Zero represents in his nickname.

Forgive me, but Gilbert is exciting to watch, but that does not always translate to victories.

Arenas has averaged 22.8 points, 5.5 assists and 4.2 rebounds in his seven-season NBA career. He was known as much for his tantrums as for on-court play when he came to Washington from Golden State in 2003, but he began to display more maturity as he developed into a take-over-the-game player with a knack for hitting buzzer-beating shots. Although he still has his many quirks— yelling “Hibachi!” after making a big shot is just one of many—he has helped the Wizards became a playoff regular.

As always, any NBA Basketball related comments are welcome.

    I honestly believe he should have just gone to the L.A.! If it ain’t about the money, it definitely is about the championship. Hello.. Lakers! Or any other contending team. Hopefully, his plans follow through and they do sign some heavy artillery. I can’t tell how they’re going to do it but the money’s there. 3 all stars deep and they can’t beat Lebron.
