Gilbert Arenas, the point guard with a funny name and a flair for the funnies, had an electric run as a premiere scorer. Injuries, that gun mishap and Shaq supposedly smanging his ex-girl turned “Basketball Wife” led to his rapid decline. Then an unsuccessful, short tenure with the Orlando Magic left him out of the league the second they amnestied his contract. The combination would make a weaker man crumble but Agent Zero’s not about to throw a pity party.
You can catch Gilbert on tour trying to find a spot on a team near you. Memphis is his latest stop according to ESPN as the Grizzlies scheduled a workout for him Monday. The article mentioned Gilbert’s looking for a contract for the rest of the year so perhaps he’ll find a home at the FedExForum. LA gave him a workout and passed on Arenas to trade for Ramon Sessions at last week’s trade deadline. However Memphis’s back up point guards lack experience so he has a better shot this time around.
Let’s say you’re the GM of your favorite club. Would you give Gilbert a shot to make your team?
