Agent Zero is coming for the Blazers. As most of you know, we here at the Blazers Blog think Gilbert Arenas is fantastic for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is he's completely insane. Thankfully, his insanity leads to some hilarious moments like screaming "hibachi!" at the Suns as he was lighting them up for 54 last month. We won't discuss the whipping the Suns put on him and his Bullets earlier this week for payback. Anyway, all this has come about due to Agent Zero being cut from Team USA last summer, vowing to take it out on D'Antoni, Nate, and he's still working on how to get a piece of Coach K.
This from SI.com:
Arenas has promised this season to take out his frustrations about the national team on Krzyzewski's Team USA assistants, Phoenix coach Mike D'Antoni and Portland coach Nate McMillan.
Arenas scored 54 points against the Suns last month and has said his next 50-point game will come against the Trail Blazers on Feb. 11, prompting D'Antoni to say: "I can't wait to see what he does against Duke. He's gonna kill Duke."
"He'd like to see what I'm going to do against Duke," Arenas wrote in a posting this week on his nba.com blog. "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."
And you wonder why we love Agent Zero.
