    Will there ever be another Gilbert Arenas...?

    I don't know about you guys, but Gilbert Arenas was definitely one of my favorite players of all time. And I don't mean to overrate him or give him too much credit for what he has done throughout his career.

    However, in his prime, Gilbert was known for hitting big shots. He was also so confident to the point where in a few games he can turn around and start walking back after launching up his shot.
    Here's one of the games to show those who haven't seen it before.

    There are several more aspects of his game which we should respect but this is where I meant to differentiate him with other players. Will there ever be a player that is as CONFIDENT as he was in his shots?

    Let me know what you guys think.

    P.S. I don't really like Kyrie Irving, I respect his game and hes a good player, but I just never liked him. Nonetheless, I do feel Kyrie might potentially be that type of player Agent 0 was.

    Russel Westbrook is about as confident as anyone in the league that his shot is going in.. Gilbert Arenas was just another PG who would rather shoot than pass the ball and you can see it in his FGA's as they reached in the low 20's in years.. He reminds me of Steve Franchise Francis.. there are plenty of PG's currently who would rather shoot... IE Brandon Jennings, or any PG on the Kings.

    So you're basing his confidence off of one game where he "walks" away confidently before the ball goes in? If you watch the video again, he clearly turned around after he saw the ball go in.

    McGrady did that before Arenas did.

    His career FG% is 42%, says everything about the guy. Monta Ellis career FG% is 46%, yet they call him a chucker.

    I'm unsure whether you actually misread what I typed or you are illiterate. I don't mean to pose any offense to you personally, but I do believe I said "Here's ONE of the games".

    Lol I'm not quite sure how else I can phrase this questions. When I said CONFIDENT I'm referring to people that shoot the ball and GET IT IN. Arenas chooses to shoot rather than pass because he knows his shots are gonna go in, not that he BELIEVES.

    Ooh, embedded video, I see what you did there.

    And if you're asking if there will ever be another cocky, eccentric, but at the same time, stellar player in the league, I'd say yes.
    Magic. Red Sox. Colts. Knights.

    How did you embed the video? He must be an admin in disguise.

    plenty of them.

    the players that are difficul tto repeat are those who are completely abnormal.

    Like a 6, 9 Pg.

    or a 5, 3 dude that manages to be relevant and a starter for a long time.

    or a tall dude that averages more blocks than points for his career.

    A player supremely confident in his shot? Kobe.

    him whipping out a gun in the locker room means that his legacy is something like a Latrell Sprewell or something--a very good player who unfortunately made incredibly stupid decisions and will just basically be remembered as an a-hole. Actually I liked Sprewell a lot, and I didn't like that coach he choked, Carlesimo the screamer or whatever; I thought Sprewell got a raw deal from the media, but he did a lot of things to make it worse.

    Arenas pulling a gun in the locker room however is way worse than choking a coach, and brands him as an unstable idiot who's not suitable for the NBA or really for society in general. Seriously, if you think about what Arenas might have been thinking at that moment, you realize he must be a complete moron.

    Sorry not to argue with your thread. Agent zero was a fine player and at one point was almost as good as Kobe, was dominating the East there for a while.

    Kyrie looked like GB the other night with the game winner vs. the Raptors.
