Gilbert Arenas should shut his mouth and let his game do the talking

I saw a Tweet on my Twitter feed, from TheBigLead, and I was instantly annoyed.  This is the Tweet:

"Gilbert Arenas w/ a dig at the Wizards: "Coach told me to push the ball. Haven't pushed the the ball in the last two years." Smile. Pause."

Are you kidding me?!?!  Who's fault is is that Arenas didn't play the past 2 years (i.e. or years before that)?  Umm, the ONLY answer is Arenas'.  Injury (i.e. real or fake), gun-toting, or whatever the case may be is why Arenas didn't play.  He was the face of the Washington Wizards.  I can't possibly be the only one who thinks his "dig" is laughable. 

Maybe a fresh start in Orlando is just what Arenas needs to breathe life into his stale career.  Maybe Orlando is the CPR his career needs.  At a minimum, the new city, arena, and bench will give him something new to blog about when he's sitting on the bench.

And don't even try it.  I liked Arenas when he was an Arizona Wildcat.  I was excited about the things he could accomplish in the league.  I was a fan, but I did root against him in the series v the Cleveland Cavaliers.  ****  I'm from Ohio.  I had to. 

I realize he's only played two games with the Orlando Magic and that time needs to pass for him to get used to the new offense.  However, I just took a look at his numbers and he's averaging 6 points per game and has a field goal percentage of 17.6%...  I think the Harlem Globetrotters have better numbers.

I looked for an image of Gilbert to put in this blog, but after looking through my photo archives, I can't find any of him playing.  Just saying... 

Come on, Gil.  Prove me wrong.
