Someone said they were going to shoot me. So since I’m one of those guys who says, ‘I want to see this happen. I want to see you actually shoot me,’ that’s where that came from,” says Arenas, declining to mention that someone by name. “I brought the four guns in and said (in a note), ‘Pick 1, so the day you want to shoot me let me know, I’ll be ready to get shot.’

Gilbert Arenas in USA Today with his account of the infamous 2009 locker room gun incident involving then Wizards teammate Javaris Crittenton. Apparently the incident escalated to guns when Gilbert called Crittenton’s bluff and went all Reggie Hammond in Another 48 Hours.

But movies are movies:Arenas is a back up point guard in Memphis now and Javaris Crittenton is a murder suspect. It’s hard to believe, but things could have turned out even worse.

Alex Kennedy of Hoops World is reporting that the Los Angeles Lakers have expressed in an interest in Gilbert Arenas. Arenas was waived by the Orlando Magic in early December and has been a free agent since then. 
Arenas could potentially fill the athletic void in the current Lakers line up, but it would seem like the Lakers would benefit more from signing a player like Aaron Brooks once he completes his season in China.

From Dwight Howard’s All-Star Game: Gilbert Arenas through-the-legs dunk off a trampoline. Note how Gil doesn’t seem to give a shit about his knees as he nearly lands on them after dunking.

New tees up on our store! Proceeds will go towards helping fund the Kickstarter campaign for The Classical.

I’m pretty sure Gilbert Arenas is not a comedian. I may be wrong, but I don’t think he’s ever actually gotten up on a stage and told jokes. If he is a comedian, he’s a comedian the same way I’m a basketball player. Meaning, I’m a terrible basketball player. (Currently, there is only one professional basketball player/comedian and his name is Ron Artest Metta World Peace.)

NBA Lockout Classics: 2006 - Gilbert Arenas comes home to L.A. and drops 60 on Kobe and the Lakers

Back in the day, when Gilbert was Hibachi, he was the second most lethal scorer in the NBA. On this night, he faced off with the most lethal scorer in the NBA, Kobe Bean Bryant. 

It was one hell of a duel on this night as the Bean dropped 45 and even got 15 points, 11 assists and 8 rebounds out of Luke Walton. But the Hibachi was here to grill them all, laying down a whopping 60 points on his hometown Los Angeles Lakers. 

For everyone watching, this was the birth of the NBA’s next great scoring super-star. Sure, Gilbert had already made a name for himself since averaging over 29 points a game in the prior season but this was a game that would cement his legend in NBA folklore. 

Little did we know that Gil’s rising star had peaked. This was the top of the mountain. On second thought, this wasn’t actually the top of the mountain, but this was as high as Gilbert’s career would take him. I’d call his career a flash in the pan but that wouldn’t do him any justice. Gilbert didn’t fall off because 
his game reached it’s full potential or because he became lazy and he never reached his potential. Agent Zero’s career was curtailed by knee injury after knee injury. Gil and the Wiz would go on to make the playoffs this year, only to get swept by LeBron and their rival Cavs. Then the injuries would pile up and we’d never see Happy Gil again. 

It’s rare, especially in the NBA, that one can point at a specific moment or a specific game of a players career and say, “that’s the moment that his career peaked”. I think that’s why this game is so great to me. It’s not just the fact that Gilbert did this in his homecoming. It’s not even the instant-classic duel between an NBA legend and one man who’s legacy might get lost in the NBA mythos. This game is great to me because of the fact that one can sit down and draw Gilbert’s career arch and at the very top, this game would stand alone.

Gilbert Arenas changed his Twitter avi so he could show his nearly 50,000 followers one way an NBA player organizes his, ahem, dalliances. I don’t know which is better: the font or that he pluralized “Girls I respect”.

OK this is probably the last Planking photo of the night, so enjoy it. Dwight and Gil at the Grand Bohemian hotel.

Gilbert Arenas planked the hell out of twitter last night. Jim Rome wasn’t a fan

Gilbert Arenas is giving away his shoes. All of them. 
He said he has about 70 pairs he wore this season and about 40 more that he never wore and they are all up for grabs. Just follow his twitter account (@agentzeroshow) and tweet at him for a chance to win. 
Gilbert is the self-appointed Sneaker Champ and his collection includes some real gems. Plus, Gil finally seems to have shaken the Emo off so he’s totally worth the follow just for the hilarity.

Hey, Hibachi was kind of back last night! With 20 points off the bench he almost Brandon Roy’d the Hawks and nearly won back our collective bloghearts.

Seems like Gil is back to being Sad Gil again. His last three games he’s scored: 2 pts in 27 mins vs. NJ, 9 pts/5 TOs in 43 mins vs. NY, and 0 pts in 19 mins vs. ATL in tonight’s loss. And it doesn’t help that the Magic themselves are actually encouraging the return of the Sad Beard.
Will all the sneakers (and punk rock Louboutins) in the world put a smile on Ol’ Gil's face again? Or will he just keep swapping out Foamposite colorways while scoring less than 10 points a game and cement himself as the NBA’s Imelda Marcos?

For a brief moment in the 4th quarter, Gilbert Arenas nearly had his swagger back. (via @jose3030)

That’s a lie. He was with me yesterday. He was with me last night. He was my Valentine.
