Gilbert Arenas averaged 25.0 points per game in eight seasons with the Wizards from 2003-2010. In today’s NBA, Arenas thinks that average would be much higher. “What’s James Harden averaging? 36? [I would average] 40. Easy 40, too,” Arenas told NBC Sports Washington’s Chris Miller. “Because the thing you’ve got to remember is that he’s averaging 36 and dribbling before each move 17 times. I didn’t need to dibble. I just go score and get quick buckets.”
The relationship between former Washington Wizards point guard, Gilbert Arenas and now Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is a unique one. From on-court rivals to genuine friends, Arenas recently revealed how he’s helping James’ son, Bronny, grow on the basketball court by request of The King himself. “LeBron hit me on Instagram and said ‘My son is starting to train and he’s training with Dribble2Much. Can you go over there and put some eyes on him and let me know because I’m kind of worried about him.’ I went there, watched him, and gave him some pointers,” Arenas told NBC Sports Washington’s Chris Miller on a recent episode of “And One.”
Arenas returned to James with a scouting report of Bronny and let him know that he has nothing to worry about. “He’s your clone, you don’t need to be worried,” Arenas said. “Just from looking at him, you were probably taller, you’ve got the same speed, he probably jumps higher, passes probably the same, IQ probably the same, he shoots better and dribbles better. He [James] said ‘that is actually correct.'”
Arenas appeared on Club Shay Shay to share his views on the matter. For him, losing to Paul was a trivial matter compared to the lambasting he received from his peers. “I know because of the Currys and LeBrons, everyone laughing—that probably hurt his soul. I think that hurt more than the actual fight, losing to a YouTuber. But it’s your peers, letting them down. As a big bro to him, the letdown is if you don’t get back in that ring.”
