"One young man stopped me in the streets while I was there and said, "Gilbert is the best guard in the league, but I'm going to tell you what Gilbert's problem is … ." One young sistah who just recently graduated from Lehigh University rolled up on me and said, "I think Gilbert is feelin' himself a little too much right now. I love his confidence, but it's starting to cross over into arrogance."
Still … if you've watched him play this past month, you must concede: Yeah, they may be right, but … to hell with that. This month, these 32 nights, he's earned the right to be the most arrogant "
This was taken from part of a scoop jackson article. I tend to agree that all the hype is getting to his head. His comments went from 'do my best, i'm glad i did it type stuff to, i know i can do it on any give night, i'll even predict the night, i'm unstoppable, etc..
I know that Gilbert has always thrived on being overlooked, and being an underdog, but now he has most definitely lost that status. Does anyone think this will make him kind of sit on his career and think he's the ish?
