You know it’s a weird day when Gilbert isn’t the best Arenas in the world of sports. Gilbert’s cousin, Javier, returned a punt 61 yards for a touchdown which gave the Alabama Crimson Tide the lead over #3 Louisiana State. Unfortunately, that would be Alabama’s last score as LSU came back to win 41-34.
For some reason, I get the feeling that’s not what you came to read about, so onto Gilbert’s performance against the Magic tonight. Like the rest of the Wizards (save oddly enough, Brendan Haywood) it was another disappointing game. After connecting on his first three shots, Arenas went 2-12 from the field and missed all 4 of his three-point attempts. On the bright side, Arenas has his best night distributing the ball as he dished out 6 assists but it wasn’t enough as the Orlando came out on top in the battle of Harry Potter (Magic vs. Wizards…get it? Anyone? Hey, is this thing on? Hello?).
The Wizards next game isn’t until Thursday so let’s hope that the Wizards can use these days to get their swag back.
