Detroit’s Gym Too Cold for Gilbert

Arenas keeps finding creative excuses for his poor play: “Arenas’s night was perhaps summed up by his baffled look with 0.6 of a second remaining, when the officials thought Arenas had fouled Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey (25 points), which would’ve been Arenas’s sixth foul and led to his disqualification. Arenas shrugged and said, ‘I didn’t foul anybody?’ He was right, as Butler was later assessed the foul. But Arenas really didn’t seem to be into the game on either end of the floor after scoring four of the Wizards’ first six points. ‘The building was cold,’ Arenas said. ‘I never really got into a rhythm. I got two quick fouls and I had to sit for a while. I didn’t want to try to force anything. I wasn’t in the flow of it.”‘

    What a baby. Ive been to Pistons games and the Palace is not cold at all. It just like any other arena so he needs to stop making excuses.

    Wizards need to start Boykins.

  • Shem

    Definetly don’t start Boykins, he’s a good bench player that won’t play good against other starters (like Calderon). But Gilbert is struggling and hes getting payed $111… They should sign me for $10 000 im sure they ll get their moneys worth

    For all of you who are criticizing him it is hard to play in a clod gym, but that is still not a valid excuse.

  • Yesse

    Well Gilbert still has been playing good.Especially looking at the injyry problems he had.

  • tavoris

    The cold didn’t seem to bother the Pistons too much.
