i guess Larry Bird didn't respect the game either. he ran his mouth every interview he could. Bird would be interviewed by the local stations before the games in every city. He'd always ask what the scoring record in that building was because he was getting ready to destroy it and make every single fan cry.

stop trying to be so serious.

There's a difference between having fun, and making bets with fans, predicting wins, and making a complete ass of yourself. Gilbert is doing the latter of the two. He is making a complete mockery of the Celtics and the NBA.

I'm adding that game to my "to watch" list. If he hadn't said that, I probably wouldn't have.

Arenas is great. I don't know what you partypoopers are complaining about. And btw, john, he made that prediction because of what the Celtics did to him. They treated him like **** so he wants to pay them back. Well, by now the Celts should know what a huge mistake they made. Soon, they'll realize it even more when he scores 100 on 'em... lmao.

This guy has such an enormous chip on his shoulder it's unreal.

I hope he shoots about 2/19 trying to guarantee this promise and gets shelled. F*ck, he's annoying. Everytime I read him talking more sh*t, I'm reminded of that Adidas commercial where he talks about not being bitter. It's ironic because nobody else alive can be as bitter and harbor as huge of a grudge as this guy. Someone on the other board said Arenas should be fined $50,000 every time he makes one of these stupid guarantees and doesn't follow through.

Don't worry about it... it's just talk. After the Wizards lose, he'll make up some excuse and things will be back to normal.

The game is already fun on its own. if the NBA wants to make the sport fun, it should quit giving out handouts to star players and making bs calls that change games, and become a legitimate sport. It already has amazing athletes on it own who make it exciting.

If you're watching bball for bball, then you shouldn't even be paying attention to Arenas' off court antics.

Yeah. What I find ironic is that the people who don't like Arenas are countering his prediction with a prediction of him losing badly... lmao. Go figure.

This automatically elevates slightly the ratings of the game. And he clearly is having fun.

I usually don't like overconfident pricks, but this doesn't seems like the case. :)
