Somewhere between a lack of judgment and media sensationalism lies the Gilbert Arenas saga. Gil is currently awaiting a late March sentencing date where he could receive upwards of six months in prison. Charles, Kenny and Ernie recently spoke about the entire situation during a recent Inside The NBA telecast. Regardless whether you tend to agree with them or not, clips like this make these make it one of the premiere sports shows in rotation. Chuck reflects the sentiments that Gil’s mistake doesn’t warrant him losing the remainder of his contract (somewhere near $90M). Kenny, on the other hand, believes a suspension is the only logical explanation for his actions, while Ernie poses the $50M question, “If this violates his contract, then why can’t they rip it up?”
And somehow, someway, I find myself right in the middle. He deserves it, but he doesn’t. I’m of the belief the entire story was never truly told. That’s water under the bridge in the grand scheme of things, I assume. Regardless you made your own bed, Gil. Make it up or lay in it.
