Politics: Baron Davis vs. Gilbert Arenas

If you see Baron Davis and Gilbert Arenas getting up in each other’s faces next season, it might not have anything to do with the action on the basketball floor.

The two star point guards might simply be debating the merits of Barack Obama’s tax plan. Seriously.

Baron’s latest blog post is all about Obama (who Davis is clearly endorsing), and Davis takes Arenas to task for his views on the presidential hopeful’s plan to raise taxes for the wealthy:

(I know he said he’s gonna raise the taxes on the top income bracket, Gil, but if he uses that money to improve our schools then you won’t have to worry about some kids trying to sell pictures of your pool online cause they couldn’t get a better job.) LOL

I’m not in a position to declare who’s right in this political debate between millionaire ballplayers; I do live in Canada after all. All I know is that I can’t wait to read Gilbert’s response. E-Beef!
