As warriors fans, I remember some of these, I got a laugh out of this. These are all true.

In the Greater Washington area "Gilbertology" is the name given to his often bizarre behavior on and off the court[9], first coined by Wizards head coach Eddie Jordan. After being commented for shooting too much as a point guard, Arenas would play games nearly without shooting at all, and then score at will the next game. Arenas admits that he thrives under criticism, using jersey number "0" because he was told that he would get 0 minutes on the floor for his former team.

Use this thread to post all the crazy things Gilber Arenas does...

- While with the Warriors, he once took a shower at half time in full uniform

- Before every game he would take a teammate's jersey and hide it in the locker room to make them look for it.

- Arenas can often be seen playing online poker during half-time of games, instead of resting or preparing for the second half.

- On road trips, he will often eschew team outings on the town in favor of sitting in his room, ordering products from infomercials, such as a colon cleanser.

- In the same interview he said he preferred sleeping on the couch than on his bed, and that he once ate 12 cheeseburgers while on a road trip with the Wizards in Canada.

- During the 2003-04 season, Arenas tried to vote himself into the All Star game, trading a pair of shoes and a jersey for a box of ballots

- At the Wizards' first home game of the 2006-2007 season (November 4), during the introductions, Arenas came out wearing a blue robe with a hood, looking like a boxer. He was supposed to resemble a "wizard."

- During the 2006 NBA season, he began to shout the word hibachi as he took field goal attempts in games, explaining, "You know, a hibachi grill gets real hot. That's what my shot's like, so I've been calling it that: 'Welcome to the hibachi'." He has also stated that while he is scoring on opponents, he is "cooking chicken and shrimp" in reference to his "Hibachi grill," and that if his opponent wanted to double team him, he would "cook filet mignon" as well.

- Arenas wears size 13 sneakers on the court even though his feet are size 14½.

Yep. Makes him even more likeable... Most big stars are boring as hell. Anyone ever heard something like this about Duncan?

I heard Duncan's mood ALMOST changed when he saw his best friend ****ing his mother, while crashing his car into his house. Almost.

:mrgreen: I think the breaking point would have been if Duncan's Mom had been doing him prison-style...

Tim Duncan only has one expression. One. He never looks dramatically different from his one pose.

"One college game that's five fouls, right? ... 40-minute game at Duke, they got soft rims I'd probably score 84 or 85. I wouldn't pass the ball. I wouldn't even think about passing it. It would be like a NBA Live or an NBA 2K7 game, you just shoot with one person." -- Gilbert Arenas


I just saw this one. He was talking about how he would exact his revenge on Coach K for cutting him from Team USA.

I'm not sure if I doubt his ability to drop ocho cinco on the Blue Devils.

Well he vowed this season to drop at least 50 points once against McMillan and D'Antoni when the Wiz meet up for cutting him from the team. So far, he's kept that vow.
