At the risk of this being the most redundant post in the entire NBA blogosphere, we’re still going to address the infamous Birthday Party du Gilbert of Arenas.
By the same token, we don’t want to be redundant, so just go over to Bullets Forever, which has linked up all of the various party reports, both from those that were there to those who may have been there, to those who seem like they were there, but we can’t tell which parts really occured or not.
(Wizznutzz, we’re looking at you. (And we love you.))
Reports go from “awesome” to “too crowded” to “just another night at this club” to “bacon-filled”. (Wizznutzz, we’re still looking at you.)
Anyway, the remaining issue nobody has covered, and thus we will – how many days was Gilbert hung over for, and was his (potentially) hung over swag phenomenal or not against the Raptors yesterday?
“I don’t think we’ve ever played well on 1 o’clock games,” Arenas said after [Raptors forward Chris] Bosh had 24 points and 15 rebounds to lead the Raptors to a 116-111 victory over the Wizards on Sunday.
“In the NBA that’s a weird time, especially for your body because that’s usually your practice time. A 1 o’clock practice, you know how that goes.”
Yeah, we know how it goes when you have a $1M birthday party that your entire team was at and 36 hours later you have to play a professional basketball game.
Gil put up 33, but his shooting percentage was somewhere in the “low” range.
As for the Raptors and the recent return of Chris Bosh…ROOOAAAARRRWWWWRRR!!!!! They’re 15-19 and threatening to get to .500 – go eat that Atlantic Division – you do it, buddy.
As a Gilbert Arenas wrap-up, please note the humbleness that the man retains – in the picture above (the one with the
WHORES girls, Agent Zero makes sure he has his ticket around his neck, just in case someone tries to boot him from his own thing.
(One other note – to those all excited/impressed/disgusted/whatever that Gilbert spent an alleged $1M on his own birthday party, please understand that when your party has a “sponsor” (Vitamin Water), it means they “paid for the party”.)
