Gilbert Arenas’s pr people pretend a blog picked up on him planning to wear an “Agent 0″ jersey during the All-Star Game.
ESPN’s Chris Broussard says you can bring your gayness around him, as long as you let him bring his Bibleness around you. This is all fine and good, Chris, and we agree that such frank (and civil) discussion should be allowed in more places. That said, you must accept that we’re now forced to read everything you write knowing in the back of our head that you’re a little nutty.
Dude is RELIGIOUS.
Um…we always assumed that Charles Barkley v Dick Bavetta race was a joke. It’s not – here’s the press release over at SLAM.
The Spurs traded basically nothing for Bobcats forward Melvin Ely. We know he’s not playing much, but isn’t this dude like kinda good?
Memet Okur and Ray Allen have been added to the West All-Stars. At the rate these guys are dropping out, Smush Parker is a lock by Friday.
In other Gilbert news, he drops another 50-point prediction. Sorry – it excites us not. You could’ve been a god, yo – enough that Broussard would pray to you. (Zero also drop some LeBron trash talk.)
Dan Le Batard rips Coach Pat a new one, and it’s oh so warranted. (Thanks to Ryan.)
NBX has your slut-filled guide to getting sluts this weekend in Vegas.
Finally, big congrats to Henry Abbot over at TrueHoop – he’s sold the operation to ESPN, and will allegedly be able to continue doing it his way, albeit with much more access and actual funding. Nice work, sir – it should be interesting to see how unbiased you’re able/allowed to remain. Congrats!
