Just because Michael Jordan can still dunk, doesn't mean he can still dominate in 1-on-1 ... so says Gilbert Arenas, who tells TMZ he'd whoop the 50-year-old if it came down to it. 31-year-old Arenas -- who played for the Shanghai Sharks last season -- was clearly impressed with the footage of MJ throwin' one down last weekend, saying, "If he's still dunking at 50, that means he's still athletic enough to guard anyone." But if Jordan suddenly appeared at Gilbert's home court -- and wanted to go mano-a-mano -- GA says it wouldn't even be close .. JORDAN WOULD GO DOWN. TMZ.com

Gilbert Arenas, the former NBA player who signed a $111 million contract after two outstanding years, only to suffer numerous injuries that curtailed his career, is selling his mansion in lovely Great Falls, Virginia. (Great Falls really is breathtaking – I grew up about 35 minutes away.) Arenas, who had widely publicized problems during his last few years in the league, put his house on the market last year, pulled it, and has now re-listed it for $3.5 million according to Realtor.com.

A summer ago, Gilbert Arenas delighted us all when he put his D.C. area mansion on the market. It was everything one would expect of an Agent Zero-owned home and was one of the more unique athlete real estate offerings we’ve seen. Now it’s back on the market after relisting for $3.5 million. Besides its world-class grotto, high-end entertainment centers and a hyperbaric chamber, what sets the home apart are the shark tanks. Yes, multiple shark tanks. Inside the 9,042-square-foot estate, Gil decided to unleash his own lil’ “Sharknado”: There’s a shark tank in the entryway, a massive shark tank in his rec room — heck, even a shark tank in his swim-in grotto. When it comes to shark tanks, Gilbert Arenas does not mess around. Realtor

World Peace recently completed a trip to Beijing and Qingdao, which further fueled his idea of playing in China should he be waived. A league source told ESPNLosAngeles.com that World Peace has explored the option of playing in China through conversations with former NBA players who have made the leap, figuring out if the path blazed by the likes of Stephon Marbury, Steve Francis and Gilbert Arenas would be right for him. "You don't live twice," World Peace said. "You're not 33 twice. You won't be able to play in China at a good level again. I wouldn't be able to play in China again averaging, maybe, 40 or more points. That would be fun." ESPN.com

You mentioned how Gilbert Arenas changed his personality after the gun incident and Tiger Woods publicly apologized after his scandal, and yet both still struggled. Conversely, Kobe blocked out his legal situation in Colorado and played some of the best basketball of his career. Why is he able to do this while others can’t? Tim Grover: Because Kobe and Michael had the ability not to think of external things. When they stepped between the lines, it was like, “This is my safe haven. No one can touch me here. Nothing’s gonna happen. All that other stuff, once the whistle is blowing and I step across that line again, it’s still gonna be there, so I can’t let the other stuff affect me and the end result of what I do. I’m focused in on thing. I play basketball. This is what I do. I can’t let that other stuff distract me from doing this.” It’s the ability to shut it all down, not from a physical standpoint, but from a mental standpoint. Land O'Lakers

SLAM: So do you have long-term plans in China? What do you see for yourself in the future here? Gilbert Arenas: 32 games a year. Maximum 36 minutes. That’s all I need at this point in my career. So as long as China teams want me, I’ll be here. SLAM: Do you have any plans or hopes to tryout with the NBA again? Gilbert Arenas: Nah! [Shakes head vehemently] Because after this season I can enjoy my family. You know my kids are getting older. Being in the NBA, you don’t really get to enjoy your family life because you’re always on the road, you’re always gone. So, no. After this season will be the first time I’ll get to be with my kids for a long period of time. SLAM
