Are We Forgetting About Gilbert?

So I randomly googled Gilbert Arenas's name earlier and looking through some of the old images brought back some old memories. Some good memories. Gilbert has took a ton of heat over the past 8-10 months and I understand alot of it, he brought upon himself. I understand that this is a new Wizards team, a rebuilding team that is building on youth and potential and at the moment needs all of the salary cap space it can get, to help build the future. And that Gilbert doesn't help the youth movement, and his contract surely doesn't help in the salary cap department. But I remember when I felt like this guy was taking over the NBA. He was a rising superstar hitting "Dagger!" after "Dagger!" and putting up 40 like it was nothing. Those where the best days I have seen as a young Wiz fan. We all have talked about Gil hopefully getting his trade value up this season, and hopefully moving him for some cap space or a player to build on. But are we forgetting what he can do on the court? Are we forgetting the love this city had for Gilbert? What if he could actually help this team for years to come?

The fact that the new face of this franchise, John Wall that is, plays the same position as Gil doesn't help Gilbert's chances of being around long-term. But what if Gil comes out and really produces? If he and Wall actually click and make for a really good backcourt? Is there any chance of Gilbert being around for years to come? I sure hope there is, but I am curious what the consensus is from other Wizards fans. So basically I'm asking are people willing to put it all behind us and cheer for Gilbert as a Wizard, if he is actually successful this year? Would you like to keep him around, if he can help the team, or would it be best to just trade the guy the moment we can get something valuable in return?
