The last memory most NBA fans have of Gilbert Arenas is him having a fight with a teammate that wound up with guns being pulled out in the locker room. Arenas at one point was one of the top scorers in the league, but he seemed to fall from his peak very quickly. Now after a couple years away from the NBA, it seems like he wants back in. Hit the jump.
Arenas never has to step back on a court and he will still collect almost $40 million dollars over the next few years thanks to his last contract. But at age 31, he is still young enough to contribute to a team. In an interview with Bleacher Report he said,
Bleacher Report: Is there anything else you see yourself pursuing down the line, in or outside the game of basketball?
Gilbert Arenas: Yeah, right now I’m just developing apps. Next summer, I’m going to train really hard and then try to make a team. I’m going to try to comeback.
B/R: What would you tell NBA teams about what you can still bring to the table?
GA: I would rather just show them. All they would have to do is give me an opportunity to perform in front of them. You know, I’m a gamer. I work hard. If I’m going to come to your team, or try out for your team, I’m going to give you my all. That’s what I did [when I played].
You guys think he could help a contending team?
