Could we see Gilbert Arenas back on an NBA floor near you next season? According to Gilbert himself, he has been training for a comeback. This is what he told 106.7 The Fan:
“I’m in the middle of training now,” Arenas said. “I said I’m gonna give it one more chance. I told Nick [Young] I’m gonna actually put some heart into it. You know, I lost it there for awhile.”
Gilbert is still collecting some nice checks from his NBA playing days, being paid $12M a year until 2016. So if he decided to make a comeback, it really would be for the love of the game. If his heart is really in it, I could see him hanging on a roster.
He’s a fun guy though, so it’d be entertaining at the very least for him to come back.
