This a trade request, nothing more.

What he did was cool. If he would have kept his mouth shut this would be a non issue. I respect him for it. He is going to get his minutes so why not help a youngster shine.

The Wiz should have made an attempt to void his contract over the gun issue.

Obviously they can't keep him around.

You're probably right. The question is, will he hurt his trade value to much in the process? Normally, no one is untradeable but he's really pushing it...probably still a taker out there but it's also possible he breaks the final straw and does something dumb enough for them to void the contract...though if that was possible you'd think they'd have done it over the gun thing.

you don't want players being handed something to them on a silver plate, they might start to feel entitled to it

Default Re: Arenas fined for faking injury

If this is his way of asking to be dealt as soon as possible, I underestimated how dumb Gilbert Arenas truly is.

It's one thing to help out a team-mate that is left behind in the rotation during a pre-season game. It's another thing to actually tell the media you "faked" the injury. How dumb is this man? And why am I so surprised?

If Gilbert Arenas wasn't already untradable, then he is now. It's just adding to the list of negatives that far out weigh the positives for this guy. His massive contract, his antics, his injuries, his lies, and now were back to injuries again, only this time: HE'S FAKING THEM. What would the motive for any team in this league be for trading for him? Gee, I hope he can still play (crosses-fingers). The Washington Wizards are screwed. They are stuck with him. Unless they dish out every 1st round pick that they own, I don't see Gilbert Arenas going anywhere.

Why are people giving this idiot credit for having "good intentions"? This couldn't be further from the truth. If there were any "good intentions" in his mind, he would have kept his trap shut about the entire episode.

The truth is this is another "look at me" ploy by this moron, who appears to have learned absolutely nothing from the 50-game suspension and jail-time.

I considered him an idiot when he came into the league from Arizona, but never suspected that he would sink to the depths that he has. The Wiz wish they had a time machine to go back to the day before his ridiculous contract was signed.

And for people saying that its just the pre-season -- more is coming in the regular season, trust me. Just wait.

Should've pulled a LeBron to give Young more PT instead of lying to coach and then calling a spade a spade.

They are paying this guy 100+ mil to play ball, and he's faking injuries so some low paid bench player can get more PT?



I like Arenas, but they need to trade him if possible. He wants Young to get more PT, make it happen.
