The best of Arenas' blog

New, comment

We all know that Gilbert Arenas' blog...I mean,  transcribed phone call with an NBA.com intern is a real highlight, but he went even more over the top and regularly blogged at all-star weekend in Vegas.  Here are some of the highlights from the weekend.

Arenas on the annual player's union party:

I want to throw the party.

It would be nice if they gave me that power.

If they seen what I did to my party in two months, what I can do to theirs in a whole year...I'll make it into something that will be remembered.

At the very least, Agent Zero knows how to throw a party.  I can't think of anyone who wouldn't be down with that idea.

On Damon Jones, one of his opponents in the three-point shootout.

Damon Jones: Great conversation shooter. I heard he's going to wear a hot pink jacket. I mean, that's a nice color to come in second, third, fourth or fifth in.

On Jason Kapono, the winner of the three-point shootout.

Pretty good for a first-timer.

But Diesel gave him his energy. I knew they should have moved Shaq away from that baseline.

There's something wrong with that water down in Miami. They're winning championships, they're winning trophies ... somebody needs to go down there and check that water.

He also talked about his HALO team, and tried to explain why he's involved in so many different things.

I thought about having my Final Boss come out here, but two of them aren't old enough yet, so it was hard for me to bring two and leave the other two back.

Right now they're training for upcoming tournaments. We got a new player, Strong Side, and he's supposed to help the team out.

I'm busy. I don't sleep. I nap.

I'm trying to look at what successful people before did and get an earlier start on it. You know, Magic waited till he got out of the league, Shaq is doing it now, I'm 25 and I'd rather get my hands into things now rather than wait.

Finally, Arenas explains his trampoline dunk.

We were sitting there in the timeout watching them Elvis guys dunk, and my big mouth, I was like, "Man, I can do that better than them." And then they missed a couple so I was like, "When they finish up, I'm going to go do it."

Shaq was like, "Yeah, right." He said, "I'll put $100,000 in your foundation."

I was like, $100,000 or get in trouble by David Stern?

$100,000 or get in trouble by David Stern?

Oh man, I'll take that fine. So I did it for my Zer0 2 Her0 charity.

It was great though. Between the legs...Yea-ahhh!

I used to practice those trampoline dunks back at Golden State. I can flip and everything. But I didn't want to flip and crack my neck.

There's a lot more in there, so go check it out.
