This Will Make Everything Easier Going Forward

As a guy that's blogged about Gilbert Arenas and the Wizards for a while now, I'll be the first to tell you that one of the only things that I understand about the guy is that he likes to go back and forth...a lot.  It's not that Gilbert likes to be deceptive, or intentionally mislead people, it really isn't.  It's like Michael Lee said, it's "more the result of him having no filter when he speaks."  It's not that he's a habitual liar, he just hasn't mastered the art of knowing what not to say to avoid any potential to go back on what he said later on down the road.

That's not necessarily a bad thing, especially from a blogger's perspective, since it gives us something to talk about.  But all this back-and-forth can cause some confusion, especially for those who only pay attention to Gilbert for his quotables.

It's easy to tell people to take everything that Gilbert says with a grain of salt, but it's a lot harder to get people to actually apply that knowledge each time they read something that he says.  So from now on, I'd like to propose that we use the following picture every time Gilbert says something.

Once you get this photo drilled in your mind every time you hear Gilbert say something, it's much easier to enjoy what he says.  Furthermore, it keeps you from getting caught on the emotional roller coaster that his back-and-forth comments can sometimes create.
