I can't believe what an insult to humanity Albert Haynesworth is, but the question has to be asked: Which signing was worse in retrospect, Gilbert Arenas or Albert Haynesworth? Who will be cut or traded or bought out first?
As goofy as Gilbert is, there can be little question about his work ethic and love of the game. He poops in shoes, re-injures himself playing on asphalt courts and brings guns into the locker room. Fat Albert takes plays off whenever he wants, and decides he won't show up because, well, he just doesn't want to.
The calls for their heads continue, and on the radio today they are saying that Gilbert should not be on this team when training camp starts. I'm leaning toward keeping the guy and see if he can redeem himself. Haynesworth, I would love to see him rot on the bench and never redeem his career. I certainly wouldn't give him up for a 4th round pick, and I wouldn't want to give up Arenas for nothing either.
These scenarios are very similar and so disappointing for the fans who are suffering. Both players are making a ton of money and are considered un-tradeable. Can't we have some optimism for once without some black cloud moving in with acid rain falling on our heads?
