Gilbert Arenas could have purchased $110 million pools (actually that would be only purchased, somehow) which absolutely floors me. Why "only", you ask? Because his pool, seen above and after the jump, costs one ... meeellion dollars. Many thanks to Dan Steinberg of D.C. Sports Bog for promulgating these photos and for Gil for being cool enough to let them ride.

Just in case the trio of Fred Smoot, Chris Knoche and Steve Czaban weren't reliable enough sources on the fabulousness of Gilbert Arenas's million-dollar pool, which Czaban claimed will be one of the largest residential pools in America, I bring you alleged pics of said pool, courtesy of a regular Bog reader and diehard Wizards fan who recently visited the work site with one of the crews.

The reader provides some facts, which he gleaned from one of the contractors:

* The stone for the "mountain" cost nearly half a million dollars.

* There are three different fish tanks, one going in the "grotto," one in the front hall, and one in the basement. Their normal retail price would have been about another half-million.

* The tank in the basement will have a recess with a couch in it so Gil can "relax and look up at the fish."

* The work is scheduled to be finished in August.

Lol let him buy what he wants. Its funny because deep down inside most pro athletes wouldn't be crap if they weren't so gifted. He'll probably lose all of his money within 5 years of retirement. And if not, hey, you're probably still a better person than he is :p

What a fool! He's going to be like Latrell Sprewell. He's going to end up selling all of his possesions, if he doesn't wise up.

It's his damn money. You guys act like other NBA players don't do this. Plus Arenas donates so much money, if not the most money. Plus what would you do if you just signed a $100 million deal, just keep it, right?

Why do people care if Gilbert buys a 2 million dollar pool, its better than him buying some other things for 2 million dollars

gilberts got over 100 million dollars so 2 million isnt even that much to him

whats wrong with that?

Because he's always talking about how nobody thought he could make it in the nba, and how he proved them all wrong. It's his whole "me against the world" attitude that people dislike...I remember in one of the commercials he complained about how when he was a rookie, he sat the first half of the season on the bench and how nobody believed in him. Well, Gilbert, that's what most 2nd-round draft pick rookies do in their first year, they SIT ON THE BENCH!! It doesn't mean everybody thought that you sucked...at least you made the team

i hate when people get mad at athletes for being cocky. Of course there cocky. We all play sports...they play the same sports and make MILLIONS. constantly fans are telling him hes there idol, or favorite player or hes the best player. it goes to these players heads. but you cant blame em. if i was buying million dollar pools i gurantee every one who looked at me wopuld hate me. Id be the cockiest mutha****er. plus its not like he talks and doesnt back it up. hes a hell of a basketball player.

middle class citizens who buy a pool probably spend a larger percentage of their money than gilbert did on his. so what gilbert did wasnt even stupid

I agree.

I mean I may not be for the 1 million dollar pool, but it's his money not ours.

If you didn't help him make the money, don't tell him how to spend it.

07-31-2008, 09:42 PM
not that im a gilbert fan or anything but u guys cant criticize him for this because u have never signed a guarenteed contract worth 110 mil. So until u do and decide to give most of it to charity then i wouldnt ***** at him about his purchases.

07-31-2008, 10:43 PM

People are just bickering because professional athletes make alot more money than they should. However, its their money and they can do whatever they want with it. Gilbert Arenas does donate alot of money. So what, he wants a really expensive pool that he'll probably swim in twice. At least he isnt spending money on drugs and getting in trouble with the law.
