Flip Saunders, Getting to Know Gilbert Arenas

Flip has spent a lot of time with Gil this summer, and likes what he’s seeing and hearing: “So, whether it’s over stone crab at Arenas’ favorite Chicago restaurant, through text messages or watching Arenas in about a half-dozen individual workouts in Washington, Saunders has been putting in the time to try to get to know Arenas. ‘There are a lot of people that think he is hard to deal with,” Saunders said. “I’ve never had a problem with guys that had passion for the game. But what has surprised me is how open he is. We’ve had a lot of talks about everything, including his relationships with all the coaches he had from junior high to high school to college to the NBA. I have a better understanding of where he’s coming from.”’

    Don’t give Gilbert any ideas, Albert. He’ll try to pursue it.

    He should read Eddie Jordan’s thesis on ‘Gilbertology’.

    Surprised by how open he is? The same guy who told the world his nuts got infected from shaving them with a rusty razor? Flip isnt exactly the swiftest guy around.

    Just cause you ate stone crab doesn’t mean you can stop the crab dribble


    Pretty much. There isn’t a player in this league, or any other, as open as Gil. At least none who aren’t completely outta their minds(SM)!

    AlbertBarr….I’m expecting him to come back healthy this time.

    Judging by that video up here a few weeks ago, he’s looking pretty good.

    Coach Saunders, I sure hope you are right about Gilbert, beacause the Wizards sure do need him healthy as they were absolutely dreadful this past season Ugh!
