Default Gilbert Arenas: "Im not coming back" ??

Quote:
Gilbert Arenas wanted to play tonight but the medical staff would not clear him. Arenas went through shootaround this morning and was preparing himself to play all day long and was obviously angry at the decision. When I approached him, he said something that I can't repeat hear but the clean version is something along lines of "Now, they are messing with my mind."

He walked out of the locker room without speaking with reporters and will not be on the bench tonight because he said he does not a have sports coat (which is required by the NBA's dress code).

On his way out of the door, he said: "Ya'll don't have to write anymore. I'm not coming back this season."


About Two Hours Later...

Quote:
I spoke with Gilbert Arenas not long after he stormed out of the locker room after being told by team medical staff that he couldn't play tonight. He was still frustrated but backed off of what he said when he walked out ("Ya'll don't have to write anymore. I'm not coming back this year.")

.... Arenas: "I went in there hoping to have them look at the knee and say I could play. Then, (the doctor) told me I need one more week. I understand, he's the doctor, but it wasn't what I wanted to hear. It took me a long time to get my mind right about coming back at at all and today, I was there. I wanted to play. Now, how do I know that I'm going to be ready next week? What's going to change next week? At the end of the day, it might be the right thing, but it wasn't what I wanted to hear."

Anybody who thinks this has anything to do with his knee at this point is crazy. I can imagine the phone conversation between Eddie Jordan and the team doctors:

"I don't care what it takes, you keep him out! You hear me? He's not fu**ing coming back!! Maybe tell him 'one more week', and then next week, close him down for the season with some "new worrying results from the MRI" or something. I don't care as long as he's not messing up my team!"

You realize that with Gilbert they'd probably be ahead of Cavs right?

Yes, I do believe they would be. This is a playoff sleeper team though, if he can come back even at 90% of what he was...

In other words, you have NO argument. Thank you for conceding defeat.

I don't care what he says - with Gilbert, it's all about Gilbert, all the time. He's probably the worst attention whore in the whole league and totally incapable of playing within a non-ego team structure like the one the Wizards have worked hard to develop in his absence.

You really think EJ will want to risk throwing his team into disarray by inserting a known ballhog chucker into the lineup? "Just an assist man" my ass. Everyone knows Arenas would start monopolizing the shots in his usual way very quickly. That's just who he is.

Eddie Jordan wouldn't even try that. Gilbert has far too much power within the Wizards for Eddie to win that battle.

Last night my girlfriend came home earlier than she ever has and caught me, naked, watching porn, and stroking it with a mask and snorkel on.

There's not really much to say at that point. She walked right past me and went into the bedroom. I quickly turned the porn off, put on some pants, and took the mask and snorkel off. Five minuets later she came out of the bedroom and asked how my day was... it was like she didn't just catch me throttling myself with a mask and snorkel on. The rest of the evening went as normal. We had baked chicken and green beans for dinner, and then watched the simpsons.

I don't really don't know what else to say

he only said that because he was frustrated he couldn't come back and felt like the doctors were going to keep extending his dnps for a week from now till the end of time. he thought he was playing yesterday.
