Somehow, the ending to yesterday's game was even more ridiculous than we thought. This comes from the Wizards Insider blog.
This kind of adds to my belief that the Wizards got lucky to win this one. The referees lost total control of the game, and it's unfortunate that it had to end this way.
Then again, however, Gilbert Arenas DID have to make the free throws, and the Warrior players did their best to make the situation seem like Game 6 of last year's playoff series against Cleveland.
This was after Harrington, Jason Richardson and Matt Barnes (of all people) walked by Gilbert and chirped in his ear. Richardson said something about "Benihana" It had to be his answer to Gilbert's "hibachi" fixation. Anyway, just before Gilbert took and made the last shot, I caught eye contact with Antawn Jamison and he gave me one of those huge grins he's famous for. He knew Gilbert was making it. And he did.
It's become painfully obvious that Arenas now gets the star treatment, especially at home. There's no doubt in my mind that he was fouled, but with most people, they won't get that call at the end of the day. Arenas did, and he's been getting them a lot recently. That's a testament to his improvement as a player.
