We must report that our new favorite place to visit on the Internet is Gilbert Arenas' NBA.com blog (sorry, Fleshbot). This is because A). He actually writes it himself, unlike some people; B). There are posts with headlines such as "ESPN The Magazine Took Me Off the Cover" and "I Was Fouled Against Chicago"; and C). He writes about his birthday party, just like the kids on MySpace.
Also, there's breaking news. Such as the fact that he would gladly give up an NBA season to return to college and play against Duke.
"D'Antoni said that after I scored 54 on them and made my prediction to score 50 on the Blazers that he'd like to see what I'm going to do against Duke. I thought it was funny because if I have the chance to go back to college, I'll give up one NBA season to play against Duke. One college game...that's five fouls, right?...40-minute game...at Duke, they got soft rims...I'd probably score 84 or 85. I wouldn't pass the ball. I wouldn't even think about passing it. It would be like a NBA Live or an NBA 2K7 game, you just shoot with one person."
Mike Krzyzewski cut Arenas from the U.S. National team last summer, and Arenas will get his revenge even if he has to pull a Rodney Dangerfield in Back to School to do it. Just one snag in the plan: Which school would Agent Zero play for? We think that Iona would have an opening.
Actually we'd just like to see Arenas attempt to spell Krzyzewski without breaking the Internet.
