Default Gilbert Arenas Refused to Root for Teammates

Quote:
As Arenas explains, “I was angry as f—- as a bench player. I’m not clapping for s—- you did. Like, I’m sorry ... F—- that. I want your position.”

Arenas continues by saying he rooted for his teammates to struggle when he was on the bench because he knew that meant he would enter the game sooner. He even says he would call out teammates to try and get his coach to sub him in sooner.

“I was literally making sure the coach knew his flaws, like, ‘C’mon, dude, get back on defense.’ Like, ‘Damn, man, he keeps getting beat.’ Like, ‘Tighten up, he keeps going left on you.’”

Arenas describes himself as “low-key hating” on the guy in front of him when he was on the bench.

Explains a lot about his career and how other players regarded him.

But only for the guy at his position right? Presumably he rooted for the other guys.

Gilbert is the NBA's version of a male rachet.

The guy is one of the dumbest and least self aware players ever.

After watching this podcast I got a different view when it comes to Gilbo. Dude is just a weird guy, but nothing is serious. Like he would be hating, but it would not be serious I assume
