Gilbert Arenas watched the Wizards vs. Lakers game last night

New, comments

He even got to say hi to John Wall.

Seeing Wizards alumni back to support their team is certainly something that most fans welcome. This season, the Wizards wore uniforms reminiscent of their time in Baltimore (when they were known as the Bullets) and have honored many players during throwback games.

But when you're Gilbert Arenas, things are complicated given the gun incident in 2009, and his controversial posts on Instagram. Arenas, who lives in Los Angeles sat courtside during Sunday's contest, presumably to see his old team. Steve Buckhantz and Phil Chenier of the Wizards' broadcasting crew also gave some remarks which are embedded above.

He even exchanged pleasantries with John Wall after the game.

It's nice to see that Arenas appears to be on good terms with at least some of the Wizards' current players. But at the same time, I don't know if this was necessarily a good time to highlight that moment considering that the franchise wants no part of this.
