Default Arenas's New Phrase (Kobe Related)

This is too funny-

Quote:
For the time being, anyway, he said he has stopped saying "hibachi" when his jump shot is in mid-flight even though, as teammate Caron Butler said Friday, "Once he starts saying that, I know it's money."

Now Arenas claims to utter the phrase "quality shots," a tweak at Kobe Bryant's petulant criticism following Arenas's 60-point game against Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers last Sunday

"Ever since Kobe said I was lucky, I say 'quality shots,' " Arenas said with a grin and a twinkle in his eye after scoring 54 points in the Wizards' 144-139 overtime victory over Phoenix before 18,422 at U.S. Airlines Center on Friday.

"Maybe Kobe would say that was luck. It's luck when you score 30 or 40, but luck can't get you 50 or 60. Every game before the game, I make 10 threes from 10 spots on the court. That's 100 threes."

Arenas made 21 of 37 field goal attempts, including 6 of 12 three-point attempts, to go with four assists and three steals while breaking Bryant's U.S. Airways record of 51 points, set April 7, 2006.

I like how Arenas is starting to get some swagger to go with his good play.

Gil is my guy but it's not wise to poke #24 when they still have a game to play. I can't wait for February

I don't ever recall Kobe saying that ArenASS was "lucky." But I guess Gilbert just wants to keep his name in the papers. Kinda sad that the only way he can get any press whatsoever is when Kobe's name is brought into it.

It didn't last long for Mitch Richmond and it won't last long for Gilbert Arenas. Enjoy your 15 minutes Gilbert. The clock is ticking......

Thanks to Kobe.

It won't be long before he'll go back to being "that guy that gets 30 ppg and does nothing else." :

He's only 24 and he's already averaging 30 a game. He could be a future hall of famer for all you know. Besides, Richmond was a good player. He scored over 20,000 in his career averaged 21 a game on 46% shooting

And on this board, that's saying a lot. Congrats!
