    LeBron/Arenas interaction at the free throw line

    I couldn't find any other Gilbert Arenas threads and I looked back to December. Perhaps they are lost in one of these other teams/other series threads.

    Anyway, did anyone notice that LeBron James actually went up to Gilbert Arenas and talked to him during his free-throw shooting at the very end of that game. He approached him at the free throw line twice. I may not have the sequence exactly right, but I think it was actually
    before the 1st and before the 2nd. He missed both. I don't think I was hallucinating, but WTF?

    What is he doing approaching and talking to Arenas before he shoots his free throws when the game is on the line? Man oh man. Since the NBA is so rules crazy maybe they should add some kind of free throw restraining order type rule. You know like an opposing player can't come within ten feet of a player shooting a free throw. Just kidding.

    But seriously, I would really think that would mess up a guys concentration. I don't know what he said each time, but I wouldn't overlook the possibility that whatever it was unnerved Arenas. Even
    if what he said was pseudo-supportive, just the fact that he did it would be unnerving. LeBron may be a master psychological chess player in addition to his other talents. Yikes.

    Re: What is wrong with Gilbert Arenas

    I'm pretty sure there was a thread talking about Arenas's anger at Flip for not playing him alot of minutes in the all-star game. That's about all I can remember though.

    Anyway, I know whats RIGHT with Gilbert!

    That last second shot to put last night's game in overtime was AMAZING!

    ...and then he misses the free throws. lmao!

    Arenas is definitely a talent...even with his tendency to hunt a little too vigorously for in game motivation.

    Re: What is wrong with Gilbert Arenas

    On being a practical joker
    It drives some guys crazy, but I love it. One of my favorites was sneaking up on my teammate Awvee Storey. He has a bad attitude, and I just have to try and get him to smile. One day he was on the toilet reading the paper, and I snuck in with a water hose, turned it on him and sprayed him for, like, three minutes. He had all his clothes on, and he got soaked. It was hilarious. But for some reason he still wasn't laughing.

    Re: LeBron/Arenas interaction at the free throw line

    TNT just interviewed LeBron about it and he answered my question. He said "If you miss both of those free throws, the game's over and you're going home." !!! And after he said it, he kinda tapped him on the upper chest. He touched him! I'll tell you if he trys that with any of our guys. Man oh man. But Charles on TNT said he once said "You coudn't hit those free throws with a needle up your @#$" to a guy on the free throw line. I find it kind of amazing that that wouldn't incite a riot with a game on the line.

    Click search and type Gil. Arenas. You'll find ArmyG's thread about GA shooting his mouth off.

    I like a little order. I was just trying to be helpful.
    Then I come here, and I think was she already in the Gilbert thread?
    Blew my mind for a second!

    Has he said anything since wiffing in OT? I think the guy missed all his shots to go along with the 2 missed FT's.

    Well, well, our freind Gilbert Arenas doesn`t know how to shut up. Everything that comes out of his mouth lately is rubbish.

    The B-ball talk on the radio today (here in the DC area) consisted of some comments Arenas made about the US National Team.

    Mr. selfish himself says he believes that coach K had his team picked already, implying he was never part of it!! Then in the next breath says, he can`t wait for the olympic tryouts in 2008.

    What an idiot............Very talented bit has the personality of a paranoid, egotistical punk..........:mad:

    I for one who has studied some human psychology should have recognized the auto-defense mechanism.
