"I screwed up again, so I just want to say, 'Sorry.' " -- Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas, after admitting that he faked an injury so that teammate Nick Young could get extra playing time
Gilbert Arenasí latest escapade still shows that he craves attention. This time, he apparently figured he could attract more attention by not playing. He went on to say afterward that if he hadnít told the media about his fake injury, there would have been no story. True,Ö but Iím pretty sure that whole point of the episode WAS to tell the media about it.
Hereís something rare. Jrue Holliday scored a triple double in a preseason NBA game, playing almost 46 minutes (which is also unusual for a preseason game) with 18 points, 12 assists, and 11 rebounds. Holliday had played 33 minutes just the night before, so heís getting in some work.
Roy Hibbert also had a solid game, with 16 points, 14 rebounds, and 7 blocks in 30 minutes. Of course, it was against Minnesota, so perhaps you ought to grade this one on the curve.
