Zero to Hero

And Hero back to Zero.

At this point in his career, everyone’s got an opinion on the man they call Agent Zero. Love him or hate him, Gilbert Arenas is one of the most fascinating players in the L, sure to grab your attention with his free throw routine, deadly jumper, or when he takes off his jersey at the end of each game—like he did for this cover—to toss into the crowd.—Adam Fleischer

    I really hope the Wizards are good again next season. The East will be a lot more fun to watch once Detroit is out of the mix…
    (sorry TAD)

    Next years Eastern playoff teams:
    (in no exact order)
    76ers? (if Brand doesn’t make them suck again)

    Looks like fun to me…

    Rubio to Arenas!!!!

    His tats are kinda lame…I love him though. I wouldn’t count Detroit out of the mix yet either ciolk, it all depends on this offseason. They’ll have to make significant changes to be a playoff team next season though.

    I’m a fan of Zero. That being said, the Tiger tat is best suited on the side of a van. If it had color, I would have to put him in the same company as Jason Williams.

    love the dude though he is kind of inspirational.however,tiger tattoo.really? really gilbert?

    The big zero will promote himself back to Hero, through blogs, saying hibachi after shooting or by shooting first, looking off teammates with better shots to take to get his scoring average up.

    i wasn’t a fan of this photo, but I’m still a fan of Arenas. The current Wizard roster isn’t good enough though. The starting five is great, but the bench just isn’t good enough. Still, an interesting team to keep an eye on next season.

  • the big ticket

    gilbert used to be the absolute man and one of the best shooters i had ever seen before he got injured heel come back tho

    sorry seed but he retired from blogging (supposedly)

    I hope Gilbert Arenas come back and play like he did before he got injured. He was on top of his game for sure. He was proving people that he can hang with the elite. I hope he and T-Mac make a all around comeback and prove the doubters wrong. T-Mac, Kobe, and Gilbert are some of my favorite players for sure.

  • http://www.slamonline.com wayno

    I have a hard time seeing Arenas ever being as good as he was unfortunately. I hope so, but I dunno. That kind of injury is tough to bounce back from.

    Is it me or does SLAM always use some great potential wallpapers as just photos.

    looks like he has lost alot of muscle. he has no pecs right now and used to be jacked, he probably is doing that to take pressure off of his knee. but anyways, hes gonna be back next season and will prove all of the doubters wrong… once again…
