Gilbert Arenas - Are you kidding me?

by james on September 18th, 2008

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

Gilbert Arenas can often beat you with just one finger

Gilbert Arenas is a big hoop star in the NBA.

Like a lot of big hoop stars, Gilbert can put the ball in the hoop. In fact, there are times he can put the ball in the hoop from almost anywhere on the court once he passes half court. Yes, on offense he is that good.

Unfortunately like a lot of big hoop stars there is not room for ‘team’. How do you let some other player do something when you can do it better?

That did not bother Ernie Grunfeld, the General Manager of the Washington Wizards. Maybe he looked at Gilbert and thought he would put a lot of butts in the seats, who knows?

Anyway they gave Gilbert Arenas a 111 million dollar contract. Ouch.

The surgery is the third on the knee in 17 months. Arenas missed 69 regular-season games last season and had to shut himself down during the playoffs. Still, Grunfeld expressed no regret about the decision to give Arenas a six-year, $111 million contract after the point guard opted for free agency during the offseason.


At times, when Gilbert was out, the Wizards played great ball and that put doubt about the signing in all of our minds.

Again, who knows, Gilbert Arenas is only 26 years old and may have his best basketball ahead of him. The question remains if he can become the team player that produces championships and not just stats.
