When have people not known Arenas to do childish things?

It's a meaningless preseason game and they are fining Arenas for shit they should have known he would do. I guess the relationship soured a bit after that injury.
No "Manny being Manny" free pass here. Sure, the Wizards know he's nuts but they can't be expected to be on guard for unprofessional behavior 24/7. They have every right to fine him, he signed a contract to play basketball games for them, they had a game that he was supposed to play in and he got out of playing in that game under a false pretense. Frankly, they went easy on him. They probably could have justified a suspension based on his history and deciding to escalate the penalties.

In any other line of work, faking an injury would be cause for termination.

lol are you David Stern?

"In any other line of work, faking an injury would be cause for termination."

Well this is the NBA, not any regular line of work so the comparison doesn't work there. Lots of people call sick for work everyday. It's a dumb move, but there really is no reason to go overboard on this. Getting suspended for 1 preseason doesn't send any sort of message. It's the preseason. It's a bunch of warm up games man. His knee is alright, Nick Young played his ass off, he made stupid comments and got fined...move on.

What the hell is his problem? Does the dude have any brains at all? Is he trying to get his contract voided?

PS

The people defending him are flat out stupid. Keep the fine quiet? Don't suspend him? Are you kidding me? Dude is getting paid big time cash and continues to be a complete f-ing moron. How can they ever trust him on anything again? He is a proven liar, a proven attention whore, and a proven idiot.

Getting caught faking an injury would be cause for termination. People do it(call in sick,etc) and people make up all kinds of excuses(kid related,etc.) just to leave early.

if you are caught faking an injury to get out of work, you probably will lose your job. I have seen it happen. Shit, they even had private investigators tailing this guy cause they were suspicious.


and yes, people fake being sick (not quite the same thing), but you can also be fired for that.

People need to think this through. HE didn't call in sick. He faked an injury, then announced to the media I WAS LYING. HAHA.

It's a jackass move. They have to fine him. Anything else makes them look ridiculous.

Damn it! That makes complete sense! Don't you know you are not allowed to do those kinds of things around here!

You are right, if Washington didn't do anything then it would be known that the inmates run the asylum and that would be bad for business.

They really need to get rid of him. As retarded as he clearly is, he's still the biggest star on the team and thus a potential very bad role model for Wall, who should be surrounded by as many positive professional influences as possible. If possible (I'm not saying it's possible) I'd trade Arenas to get Jamison back, or some guy like that.

Arenas is really like a lil kid in mentality. its funny that he doesn't even get it and tries to blame the media. i knew he never got it about the gun incidents either more than everyone telling him he had to apologize and act all contrite, then putting on the act.

lucky he has bball, if he had to make it in the real world he'd be working at Mcdonalds.

To take a page out of bagelred's book. A reporter asked Mr. Stern, what he thought of Arena's fake injury incident: "I think it was ill-conceived, poorly produced and badly executed."

Come on Gilbert. Take some notes from PP if you're going to fake an injury.

Coachs make roster decisions and Agent ZERO = zero cred.

He better concentrate on his own j0ob and not worry about other players.

Knee injury = cry wolf once

cry wolf twice

cry out the door

If he shows he can play they still might. Get Melo amd that's a heck of a trio offensively. Not sure how D'Antoni feels about knuckleheads but most coaches think they're the one that can finally get through to some idiot player.

Arenas is just trying to get out of Washington. He wants no part of their future. He's basically just saying "f#*k it" to push a trade before the dead-line. I wonder if he will continue to be a problem elsewhere...well, he probably would. He seems like a bonehead.
