Gilbert Arenas is in trouble again!!! The Washington Wizards guard sat out of the game Tuesday against the Atlanta Hawks because his knee was “supposedly” sore. The truth came out that he sat out for other reasons and now is catching heat for it.
Gilbert Arenas sat out of the game to give his fellow player, Nick Young a chance to start. That stunt alone is costing him an undisclosed amount of money.
This is what Wizards President, Ernie Grunfeld had to say…
“Gilbert’s actions and comments [Tuesday] night compromised the integrity of the game and were unacceptable. He has been fined as a result and we now consider this matter closed.”
Gilbert is back apologizing again following after his previous troubles of bringing guns into the locker room last season.
“I messed up again, I’ll never do it again.”
“In hindsight, yes, but I wasn’t really thinking that this was going to be another media outburst. If I wouldn’t have made any comments, you guys wouldn’t have known, right? Let’s just say I blew it again. . . . It’s like everything I do now, someone tit for tat, try to blow it out of proportion. At the end of the day, Nick is happy. He got to play, got to show that he can play, and I’m out here taking all the heat again. I made my teammate happy.”
