Gilbert Arenas deal is done for less

by james on July 14th, 2008

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

Six years and 111 million bucks.

But Gilbert Arenas took less.

The Wizards offered Arenas a max contract — $127 million over six years — leaving it up to the unpredictable Agent Zero to decide whether he would live up to his previous statement that he would take a lesser amount if it would help the team sign other players and improve the prospects of contending for an NBA title. Arenas negotiated the deal without an agent while traveling in China on a promotional tour for a shoe company.


The Wizards have resigned Antawn Jamison and now have enough money to add one more player.

Could it be Gilbert Arenas wants to win? Even more than posting stats?

Check out this YouTube on Arenas and what he has been thinking.

Now that you know his thoughts, watch his scoring ability in this mix.

Gilbert just seems to be able to walk right through defenses for layup after layup.

As always, any NBA Basketball related comments are welcome.

    Gilbert got his money (NBA players usually do). His teammates will never see the ball. Washington will still suck, he won’t be in the playoffs so no one outside of Washington will see him play. In the grand scheme of things this is a scruff on the NBA ball of life.

    Arenas is absolutely one of the elite players in the league.I guess with his recent injuries though, he should be happy with the 111 million deal.

    Opinions differ on Agent Zero. Big problem, even if he is the ultimate team player, is there enough talent on that team to challenge in the playoffs?
