Would You Watch a Reality Show Starring Gilbert Arenas?

by Marcel Mutoni

Because the Wizards star might just be getting one.

After becoming a hit in the world of blogging, Gil is thinking about trying his luck at television next. Arenas phoned in to a DC-area radio show recently, and discussed the possibility of having a camera crew film his antics.

From RealClearSports:

“Ya know, it’s funny. I got a — you ever seen the show, ‘Rob and Big?’ The producers want to do a reality show on me — the first NBA player to do a reality show. But then I thought about it — I was like, my life is really not that exciting.

“Ya know, so, I’m thinking about it, because, ya know, I have players like Nick [Young], who’s goofy, so we can do paintball shooting and see who can get hurt on the grotto jumping into the pool…”

It’ll be just like his blog, except with moving pictures! Make it happen, reality television producers.

  • Lz – Cphfinest3

    Nope. But I bet Gil is having wet dreams about having a reality show.

  • andrew

    This would be the best thing. Ever. Better than explosions and guns.

  • B. Long

    The bigger question is who wouldn’t watch it? Coach K?

  • stockton

    I don’t normally like reality shows, but hell f$cking yes!

    SOMEONE OUT THERE PLEASE HELP? What was that controvercial joke he said about sharks? Please remind me. That was A-one stuff.

    Of course Gilbert has an interesting life. Although maybe he should spend more time practicing basketball. He has been destroyed by Dwyane Wade at NBA Gauntlet.

    Although, Sheed should atleast have a recurring guest spot.

    this’ll be like doug and jackie, only crazier.

    Gilbert Arenas is an attention seeking dbag. They should follow the Indiana Pacers. I can see it now. “The Real World: Indiana” You know a lot of crazy stuff will go down and theres a possibility of gettin shot. It don’t get any realer than that. Get on it NBATV/MTV

  • Rico

    Y’all are pathetic, why don’t you just make friends with NBA stars and get to know them that way instead of watching them on TV pretending like you know them. I’ve made tons of famous friends, it’s easy unless you’re a loser.

  • WhaHuh

    Carmelo already has one. Called “Carmelos Way” the trailer is already online featuring Lebron AI etc.

  • http://its-mitch.blogspot.com/ Paps

    I would rather watch Magic host a TV show.

  • http://dyalekt.com d.Y.

    I’d rather a buddy cop movie with Gil and Starbury, featuring Next Town Brown as the Chief.

    There are some truly bizarre comments for this thread.

  • KA

    thats hot. then he can rope in deshawn to play jazzy jeff to his fresh prince. that hardcore Toronto coach can be his uncle. we just need to cast Carlton.

  • Paps

    Rico you’re a loser.

  • Winslowalrob

    Best. Show. Ever.

  • H to the Izzo


  • Dallas J

    I agree with Rico. Why watch Gil on TV when you can just barge into his home and make friends with him. Rico did you text Kobe after the game today? I did.. he said hi.

  • http://www.lifehoopsthoughts.blogspot.com the baconator

    @ KA: I always thought Chris Paul kinda looked liked Carlton…

  • john

    i hope it happens.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Shawn Kleinveld

    @ the baconator: You me that Chris Paul wasn’t the dude who played carlton? How come they weren’t on the nba look-a-like list

  • http://www.slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    Gilbert Arenas IS a reality show. Don’t overdo it, Gil.

  • http://www.lifehoopsthoughts.blogspot.com the baconator

    @ Shawn: haha, good question.

  • a_whiteman

    “gilbert, marbury and ron artest all living in the same house, with rasheed wallace as guest star”

    I bet they wouldn’t be staying in that house for long coz putting those guys together, they’d probably do something that gets them in jail.
