David Aldrige's thoughts on Pairing Wall & Arenas

"The texts came to Ted Leonsis Tuesday night.

Gilbert Arenas, the Washington Wizards' guard, fresh off a month of house arrest, had seen what occurred earlier, when the Wizards jumped from fifth to first in the lottery, with the opportunity to take Kentucky's John Wall. And that would mean Wall would move to point guard, and Arenas would move to shooting guard.

And oh, the trouble that would cause!

There is a school of thought that says the Wizards shouldn't have Arenas within a mile of Wall, such is Arenas' supposed toxicity. Arenas, the argument goes, will drag down Wall with him, into his world of bringing guns to the locker room, and suspensions, and unmentionable acts with teammates' footwear. Wall has no chance to resist the devilish charms of Arenas, the anti-teammate depressant, and the Wizards will sink deeper into the morass.

Could go that way, one supposes. But not me."

David Aldrige gives three very good reasons why Wall could play alongside Gil and won't be corrupted by him as some might be led on to believe. Just scroll down to Wall's picture to find it.
