He learned a lesson about icewater in the veins there, I think (hope). You could see it in his bizarre struggles in November this year, that when he gets worried about being the hero instead of just going out there knowing he's going to handle his business, he can be psyched out. Not that uncommon for a young guy. And people forget how young he is.

What's scary is he maybe hasn't even hit his prime yet.

Re: Arenas is amazing

Kobe takes more bad shots than probably any player in the league, except for maybe Iverson. I always hated Kobe back in the day, but started liking him a little once he became a villain and stopped doing McDonalds commercials and everything - but he is way off base here.

Like Gil has said on more than one occasion... if he didn't have shooters like 'Tawn and Caron on the team, he would probably be taking 10-20 more shots a game. And making them.
That's a really good point. It's also a reason Arenas should get some MVP votes. If I recall, when it was him, Jamison and Hughes, they were also the leading scoring trio in the NBA. Arenas scores, but he still plays point guard and keeps guys involved. That's very important for a scorer.

In Kobe's defense though, he's really only got Lamar Odom to play with. Bynum sucks, Kwame's not much better and Walton is just now coming on. There's not much around Kobe. I don't think much of Parker either. Still, I think he likes it that way.

Re: Arenas is amazing

I'll be sad to see "Hibachi!" go away, but the little dig at Kobe is great. I just hope Gil doesn't get too cocky. Being the silent, ice-cold assassin is so much more his style (and cool) than talking a lot of crap in the papers like Kobe does.

But see that is the thing with Gil. He plays his best when he is cocky and under adversity.

Yeah, it was awesome. I knew as soon as he shot it it was going in. I jumped up and cheered as soon as it left his hands.

hey, he had 8 dimes last night... to go along 11 boards. that's a sick stat line for a primary scorer... remember, his job isn't to be a j-kidd-like point guard. he gets enough assists to keep everyone happy.

Hibachi!

Re: Arenas is amazing

Earlier in the season, when Arenas was playing poorly (for his standards), I convinced a guy in my fantasy league to trade him to me straight up for Carlos Boozer. I'm now leading the league in points thanks to Agent Zero.
