Arenas is amazing

60 points agaisnt the Lakers, give him his props. Kinda pisses me off that Kobe is so full of himself he couldn't do the same. So he was making excuses as to why Gil totally destroyed him.

And damn cant the Wiz play consistently they are losing to the Nuggets right now, without Melo.

YOU GUYS ARE KILLING ME!!!!

Re: Arenas is amazing

horrible first quarter, nice comeback but not enough. u could tell they were exhausted from last nights game and to add to that they lost an hour flying, and at altitude...it adds up. u know the nuggets would be fired up, not suprised by the loss

Re: Arenas is amazing

kinda funny people r talking about how great a game he had against Kobe who got trashed last year for scoring 21 more points than arenas did in a non overtime game. I really wish there was someone with a logical explanation as to why so many people hate on kobe the basketball player.

I dont at all, I think he is an amazing player and I actually like him. It just pissed me off that he basically wasn't acknowledging that Gil out did him that game.

I think alot of people hate Kobe because he is good and he has a bit of an ego. But hey, who the hell doesnt? He is a pretty intelligent person too, like Arenas, which I like.

Re: Arenas is amazing

I like how Kobe is accusing him of taking bad shots, LOL.

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black, sheesh.

Re: Arenas is amazing

I can't say enough about Arenas. He's just awesome. Mostly because he's a hard worker, and he's humble -- but also because he's a Wizard. I hope we never lose him, and I hope he can get a title in DC.

I also think it's cool that he gives away his jersey each game. He's a class act.

I wouldnt mind losing those hideous jerseys, what the hell was the organization thinking. Our jerseys look childish enough, way to make them look queer as well.

sure his dad was a former player of high regard in the italian leagues, but I fail to see how people could view he never earned anything when atheletic ability is never anything just given to someone, but earned through a lot of work. If he was a rich kid like the hilton's who have done nothing to earn their position in life other than to have been born, then I could understand that point of view. but as all of us who have followed professional sports for a while know, genetics never promises great atheletic ability ie Jared Payton, Eli Manning, among others.
Arenas is a damn good player even though he should have made atleast one of those damn free throws last year against cleveland. He has one of the smoothest jumpshot I've seen in a while.

Re: Arenas is amazing

Gil was on fire last night, dropping 54 points on teh Suns to end their 15 game winning streak. I have high hopes for the Wizards this season, i hope they can continue the way they are playing.

Re: Arenas is amazing

That shot to tie the game at the end of regulation was sick. Gilbert is officially the shiznit.

First of all, regardless of Gil's 60, look at Jamison and Butler and you have 2 guys who average > 20 a game each. So it's not like Gil is chucking like Kobe does, night in and out. You've got the highest trio of scorers in the NBA in DC, and Kobe has.... what, exactly? Right. 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.

Second, Kobe is arrogant, on and off the court, is a whiner, doesn't show respect to anybody else he plays against (even then they own him), and generally just acts like a spoiled child.

Third, I think most people still pretty much believe he's a rapist. Or at least your typical athlete who believes he is above the law and beyond reproach and the reach of the public who basically pay his salary.

He's just not a very likeable guy. Maybe he needs a new Nike commercial. I hated LeBron after last year's playoffs but "The LeBrons" has made me chuckle enough to reconsider.
