Gilbert Arenas hasn’t played since 2012 with the Memphis Grizzlies but at 32, he feels like he could help out teams in the NBA. Mostly, he thinks he could help the struggling teams in New York:
“I would rather just show (teams what I can do). All they would have to do is give me an opportunity to perform in front of them. You know, I’m a gamer. I work hard. If I’m going to come to your team, or try out for your team, I’m going to give you my all. That’s what I did [when I played]….
“I know the Knicks—I’ve watched them. They need a lot of help; they need scoring. ‘Melo [Carmelo Anthony] needs an outlet. Someone who can just put the ball in the basket and take the pressure off him.
I [also] called Jason Kidd before the season and said ‘Listen, I feel that I can be better than some of the players you’re going to have.’ But they were already stacked to the brim. I thought I would’ve been great coming off the bench for the Brooklyn Nets.”
I don’t how much basketball sense it would make for either of those teams to sign him but it sure would be entertaining to watch. It would be great to see him, Melo, and JR Smith share the ball.
