Mike Jones @ Outlet: Gilbert Arenas is looking good in Chicago

26

Mike Jones talked to Flip Saunders and asked about Gilbert Arenas. Saunders said Arenas is doing very well with renown trainer Tim Grover in Chicago. Here are the key nuggets. -Arenas is playing five-on-five pickup games every week with Dwyane Wade and OJ Mayo, among others. Flip dismissed worries that this may be too much activity, claiming that "Tim's in control." -Saunders says Arenas could only reverse leg press 75 pounds on his left leg when he first arrived in Chicago. Now, Saunders says Arenas can do 315 pounds. What? -Saunders and Arenas are talking daily about coaching philosophies, and sources close to Arenas say the two are "hitting it off" This all sounds great, but I'm still a bit skeptical. For one, only Saunders is directly quoted, and there's no reason for Saunders to say Arenas isn't doing well. For another, while Grover's great, the sound of Arenas playing five straight days in pickup games concerns me a little. Finally, Arenas himself is maintaining a low profile, which means there are more steps along the way for information to become a little less authentic. This is not to say Jones did anything wrong, and this report is certainly encouraging. Feel free to be more optimistic than me. I'm just only going to believe Gilbert is okay when I see it.
