"Nobody could guard me before, and can't nobody guard me now," Arenas, 27, told The Washington Times last week, breaking a silence he maintained since departing for Chicago in July. "If I hadn't come up here, I'd be starting off the season with a 95 percent chance that I'd be sitting out more games. ... [Mr. Grover] saved my career."

No one can guard an unhealthy Gilbert Arenas when he is suited up on the bench. :rolleyes:

selfsteems is a very good thing. On moderate doses. Arenas never had anything on moderate doses.

I like him still.

LOL He isnt even top 5 PG so, if he was so unguardable he should've been higher.

No one can guard him? H-E-L-L he can't guard anyone!!! He gets scored on just as much as he scores, if not more.

When he's on, I'd say this is partially true, but let's seem him for a couple games sample before Arenas starts yapping.

Gilbert Gilbert Gilbert.

While he may be right, no one could gaurd him when he was healthy but at the same time he couldnt gaurd any one either.

Gilbert is making me excited to watch this upcoming season. When he was healthy, -nobody- could guard him except when he went into his selfish mode. Since he has been working out with Joe Johnson, Iggy, and Lebron, he is only helping himself get back in shape.
If you go look on youtube of the videos of him playing in the league this summer that the other players played in, he is no longer wearing his brace and is actually dunking the ball. Gilbert...dunking. Never does that.

I just cant wait for the season now!

No can guard him, and he can't play Defense. It's fitting, really.

He was pretty damn unguardable in his prime, and if he returns to that form, hes right. I don't understand what the hate is for Arenas, most of you clearly don't watch him play if you think hes not a damn good player when healthy.

I am pretty sure no one on this thread is denying the talent Gilbert Arenas has. I honestly think players should just keep their mouths shut. They add additional pressure on the team and on themselves when they make statements like these. First we have Antawn Jamison saying the Washington Wizards can compete with the big boys after coming off a brutal season and now this. It drives fans of other teams crazy!

In all fairness no one really can guard the guy when healthy and on. I recall him dropping 60 in Staples Center a few years ago against Kobe and the Lakers.

Exactly. His statement is more or less true. When he is healthy, he is in the company of Lebron and Kobe in terms of being able to pretty much have their way on the offensive end. Arenas has proved to be less of an effective teammate and leader and defender than those guys, but his statement rings true. When he is healthy, no one can guard him. A team can contain him, but no one can guard him.

How is Gilbert Arenas unguardable when he cant not even play close to a whole season. TWO WORDS INJURY PRONE

jj24
09-16-2009, 08:02 PM
LOL He isnt even top 5 PG so, if he was so unguardable he should've been higher.

not necessarily. You can be a great superstar player and NOT win games.

He's right, nobody can guard him. But he wont take a team anywhere close to a title.

You don't have to be a top 5 pg or top 5 any position to be an unguardable superstar. Look at kobe's whole career minus the years with shaq and gasol. Kobe was unguardable and didn't and couldn't win **** without shaq and gasol

Three letters for you M V P. It seems that everyone has forgot about how good Gil is. Best clutch shooter in the game, he has a top ten buzzer beaters to win the game video on youtube, all over a span of 2 years Lebron only has 1 game winner...for his career. With a healthy Gil we were the only team with a winning record against the Celtics the year they won it all, the year Gil got hurt. Best record in the East when Jamison, Arenas and Butler were healthy together.

Championship...Yes
Gil unguardable ...Yes, just ask Kobe

the nba all in all is pretty boring compared to a few yr ago cuz we got drama queens like lebron dominating by goin on the daily show and insinuating that he loves new york.


this is kool for a change. gilbert is a kool guy, and its good to have "out of nowhere" stuff comin out in the open. brings a little bit of flavor to today's bland NBA culture

Halladay
09-16-2009, 08:58 PM
LOL Gilbert, when will you learn. The guy is jokes. You need atleast a few idiots like him around to stir **** up. He's played a grand total of 15 games in the last two years and his career shooting percentage is 42.7. lol.

MrFastBreak
09-16-2009, 11:40 PM
He always put up big numbers when he was healthy, nobody could guard em.
But now I dont know, I cant wait to see what he does next season.
Maybe he'll surprise some of you's.

09-16-2009, 11:56 PM
He needs to stop talking and back up that talk.

honestly.

We'll remember him as a great shooter who talked crap and never backed it up
Washington wont make the playoffs.

NOT! before arenas got injured only like 5 people outscored him! and when his on the groove noone can guard him. 60 PTS!

Nobody can guard him because he's never on the court. He's always on the bench hurt. Maybe he should actually try playing before he talks.

The wizards will become at least the 6th seed this season if Zero plays more than 60 games. IF he stays healthy the wizards could even get home court in the playoffs (ahead of the cRaptors)and he will be the scoring champion! EVERYONE QUOTE ME. If he goes down, well then forget about them altogether

seems as if gilbert has become under rated. thats the problem with u guys on PSD. once a guy gets injured u guys just forget what theyve done. happend the gilbert. u guys already forgot about tmac. and even Dwade.. when he was injured u guys were leaving him out of top 4 in the league discussions.. come on guys.. seriously.

agent zero is great.. dont take anything away from him. maybe possibly a team cancer. but he could be unguardable.. he's an amazing individual scorer. not a bad passer either when he wants to

You're leaving Pierce out of that list. In the '08 run, Pierce matched or effectively guarded both LeBron and Kobe.

Have you forgotten that he scores 30 but gives up 40 on his defence alone every game. He is the worst defender in the NBA today.. Just awful..

I don't consider him a PG, but a top 5 SG? That's for sure, if he comes back healthy. I can only name two SGs who are better compared to him, Kobe and Wade - that's it. I don't like Arenas, but I have to admit that that one year, he was dead on.

Arenas will have a fantastic year, and i think he will put the Wiz in at least the Top 4 of the East :clap:

It doesn't make him suck. And its been more than a year. It makes him need to prove he is still a 29/6 player before he should talk about how awesome he is.
