At 10-13, the Washing Wizards are in the midst of putting together their best season in nearly six years. Second-year guard Bradley Beal has turned it up in a big way, averaging 20 points a game, and John Wall has remained consistent with 19 points and 9 assists per game. Their deep roster doesn’t end there, as Trevor Ariza, Nene, Martell Webster, and Marcin Gortat are all averaging double figures.
Now, things have gotten even more interesting for the Wizards as former standout Gilbert Arenas has confirmed he wants to return to the NBA. In an interview with Bleacher Report, Arenas eyed New York, Brooklyn, Chicago, and the Los Angeles Lakers as possible fits, but anything is possible.
As the Wizards prepare for Wednesday night action against the Brooklyn Nets, Sneaker Report flashes back to December 18, 2009. Gilbert Arenas was still playing with the Wizards, and playing quite well actually. As Washington headed out west for a road game against Golden State, Gilbert Arenas went into beast mode, dropping 45 points and 13 assists as Washington powered to a 118-109 win.
During his prime, Gilbert Arenas had a short-lived signature line with adidas, which kicked off with the low-top adidas Gil-Zero. Unfortunately, many of the sizes remaining in stock today are scattered, but if you’re a 8.5 or 12, you can pick up a pair of the adidas Gil-Zero for $190.
