Gilbert Arenas Unplugged. That's basically what his Twitter feed is right now. With the lockout ongoing and the threat of discipline not hanging over his head, Arenas is pretty much free to roam the Internet, saying what he wants.

A scary, riveting thing.

The latest stream of highly interesting tweets from Agent Zero? Some incredibly detailed thoughts on the famous Wizards locker room incident:

everyone knows about my troubles last yr..the only reason u do know about it is becuz my money making days were up… as long as ur making sumbody lots of money they will let u do what ever u want..when ur time is up they will expose u to the world

if u ever hear about anything in a locker rm is becuz sumbody in high power wants it to get out… once all the free shoes are gone..i will be attacked by the media…becuz theres nothing to be gain anymore

i know what ppl are sayin..i brought ….into the locker rm..theres been full blow paint ball shoot outs in locker rms… being in the nba u see everything…what i got in trouble for ive seen over a dozens times..

i did give them the tool to take me down so its know ones fault but mines..and ive learned and got wiser from it… like i said ive made mistakes when u feel like u can do anything u want u try..and i got smacked down to reality when i went to far

Arenas is trying to make the point that this happened because, I guess, the Wizards wanted something to part ways with him with. Since he wasn't the All-Star level player anymore and was making lots of cash anyway, exposing this little scandal was something the team could use to separate from him. I don't know really what he's getting at with the shoes thing though. Do some media members get free shoes? I know I wouldn't take any from Gilbert. There could be poo in them, you know.

But he also says that his incident isn't uncommon in the NBA. Paintball shootouts? That seems like something, but it's not exactly a loaded gun. I'm sure a lot of stuff happens that we never find out about. That's anything. That's life. Arenas said he's learned from it and he accepts the responsibility for it, which is good.

He's wiser, he says, too. I'm sure he is. I wouldn't say that applies to his Twitter feed necessarily though.

Poor Gilbert... (SMH) Its a shame G.A. doesnt have anyone in his life who is comfortable telling him how flawed his thinking is. Gilbert appears to be another professional athlete in a long line of many who thinks bcuz he's a millionnaire he's entitled to do whatever he wants whenever he wants because he has enough money to fix whatever problems he creates with the stroke of a pen. Gilbert is no longer relevent because his ball skills and quickness have quickly eroded thanks to his lengthy suspension and chronic knee problems. Consequently, he insists on trying to keep himself relevant through twitter with his off-base jokes and corny sense of humor. Agent 0 would be better served having 0 to say. Unfortunately, gilbert's ego is still living in the past, when he was making buzzer beaters with ease while dropping 60 on Kobe at his peak. Those days are long gone. Would somebody who has Gil's ear please talk to him about the importance of humility when you're overpaid and underachieving?

Yes, Gilbert, all disclosure of what goes on in a locker room comes from those evil, nasty, all-knowing but never seen "them".  It couldn't have been the cops, who frown on people carrying guns in their bags, or your fellow players, who may not be thrilled about being threatened with said guns, or the reporters, who think you're about as smart as a small soap dish.

That means the independent investigative press corps is a huge fantasy, not that big of a surprise....but surprising that one of the players comes right out and states it.

Kudos Arenas, your message got across, forget the self-appointed grammer cops lame whines

His spelling and grammar are about as good as his play these days!!! Gilbert should ask Iverson how it feels to have no NBA team want you, that is whats next for him!!

Wait, is Arenas illiterate? Or, sort of illiterate? I understand abbreviating to make everthing fit (even though I would rather remove my own teeth with a hammer than "tweet"), but he was butchering every other word.

Come on Gilbert. You are going to blame this on getting your nalgas kissed all of your life? Anyone with class and dignity would take this like a man. Instead your message sounds as if you are not satisfied. That somehow you are part victim. Unreal. You do not get it.
