Showing the love

With little going on with the Wizards, I've been trying to keep tabs on what little NBA tidbits are out there.  The major story regarding the NBA itself right now is the restricted free agency...

Arenas has craved to be acknowledged as the alpha male. Now he is. His contract numbers emphasize it. So it is time for him to respond accordingly in deed and spirit. It is time for him to be the leader type he has resisted being. It is time for him to get in the faces of big-name opponents and see them as threats to his potential legacy.

"The ball is in his court now:" Day 2 of the Gilbert Arenas watch

More and more, it's looking like there's no way Gilbert Arenas is taking that Golden State offer.  Ivan's story today says "it did not appear yesterday that Arenas was seriously contemplating the...

WowWowWow: Baron to the Clippers!

Five years and 65 million. I'm not sure I like this development, because it officially opens up a spot for Arenas on the Warriors. They can't offer Gilbert any more money, but with Baron out of the fold, Arenas has to become their top option.

How things change: Day 1 of the Gilbert Arenas watch

UPDATE, 9:04 p.m.: Mike Jones provides some great insights in his latest blog post.  It turns out Gilbert's trip to China is actually the first leg of his journey.  In the second leg, he's going...
