“But as a basketball player, as a teammate, that run that he had goes down. I played with the legends of the game, and a lot of them was towards the end of their careers, but [Arenas was] hands down the best teammate I ever had. His work ethic, people never understood. Gilbert’s and Kobe’s work ethic is pretty much hand in hand. Kobe would get to the arena at 5 o’clock in the morning, before practice, doing a full workout. And you’d get to practice at 9, you’d be like he’s already worked out, I just kind of feel bad. And Gilbert was the same way. It’d be 3 or 4 o’clock in the morning and he’s sitting there working on his game and getting shots up.

Jamison will work on CSN’s Wizards broadcast team in a number of roles, both as a studio analyst in Wizards Pregame Live and Postgame Live working next to Frank Hanrahan, Tony Massenburg and Ron Thompson as well as working on the game coverage with Chris Miller and the legendary pairing of Steve Buckhantz and Phil Chenier for some games. His debut will come Tuesday night as the Wizards take on LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
It’s remarkable to think that some of Jamison’s most memorable games came in the playoffs against James and Cleveland, and in a way, opening his Wizards television career with a game against LeBron seems full circle. Jamison talked about those games, and the Wizards dashed title hopes, especially in the years when teamed with Gilbert Arenas and Caron Butler Washington had one of the best teams in the East. “I remember I had a picture of the Larry O’Brien trophy in my locker because deep down in my heart I knew that we had the talent to do something special,” Jamison said of those teams.
Had you and Jamison talked about how to handle Arenas before the gun incident? Caron Butler: “It was just kind of something we knew. It was like, ‘Go talk to him.’ [Or] ‘I didn’t talk to him, you talk to him.’ It was just one of those things. But I will say this: whenever you talked to a guy like Gilbert, he always listened. He respected our voices, Antawn and myself. He always listened. And the other guys always listened to us, as well. And just on that particular incident that day, it went too far.”
