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:
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.
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
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.
