Updated: April 1, 2009

Ya’ll heard Gilbert Arenas came back?
Naw really….no April Fools.

Well, in case you missed it last Saturday, I outsourced some screen shots and they just arrived from Bangalore. Enjoy.

Gil came out focused, man.

He hugged out all the troubles of the world today with ‘Sheed.

Gil kept it light (in the loafers perhaps) by whispering sweet nothings in Iverson’s ear.

But always the showman/tease, Gilbert walked away leaving them wanting more.

This is Ed Tapscott’s ‘Prudent Face’ when it comes to Arenas’ minutes.
It also doubles as his ‘Constipation Face’.

Caron was hype too….he gave himself a fist bump.

Gilbert went to the bench late in the first quarter, mean-mug in tow.

Pistons Coach Michael Curry tried to play peek-a-boo games.
The GF said he looked like a squirrely dude….girls have intuition like that.

Jason Maxiell had a monster block on Javaris Crittenton
and followed with a put-back dunk on the other end.
He then ate a baby and licked his lips.

Phil Chenier and Steve Buckhantz just said eff it,
we’re putting on our dunce caps and tanking it.

Antawn Jamison was ANGRY!
Is it just me, or does he bitch a lot to the refs?
I could be biased, but he usually has a good case.

But the ref wasn’t trying to hear Jamison’s nonsense, and politely request that AJ further speak with the intricate, prehensile, multi-fingered body part located at the end of his arm.

Kwame Brown, still a bitch.

Dude probably would have failed the Wonderlic with flying colors.
Sure he was young, but I still gotta question Michael Jordan’s judgement of character….oh, and the fact that Kwame has tiny baby-man hands.

In other news…..

I’m Mike James, Bitch (Question Mark)
[Mike] James won a champonship with Detroit in 2003-04. He said he gave his championship ring to his father. James said he still has his championship belt from Rasheed Wallace and told me the special message on the belt. It’s not fit for print, but it is reminiscent of a classic Dave Chappelle skit about a late, great R&B/funk star from the 1980s. . . [via Wizards Insider]

Also, Mike James told Comcast’s Chris Miller that
17 camels were killed to make his sport coat.

For some reason, Javaris Crittenton dropped down and got his eagle on.

Gilbert started his coaching career by dropping some nuggets on Crittenton
about how to be a successful blogger and then suddenly retire….maybe.

Then, Gilbert said eff it and sedated Ed Tapscott
with a nerve pinch and took over as coach.

Unfortunately, after the buzzer sounded, the Wizards found themselves with a loss and Gilbert Arenas found himself being groped on the Pistons’ bench.

But in the end, Arenas was happy……

But wait, there MORE…

Here’s other stuff:

[Wizards Outlet]

Well, the game had everything but the Hibachi ending, but at least someone resembling Agent Zero was back out there and doing Agent Zero-like things for the most part. Sure, he would’ve liked to shoot better than 3-for-12 from the field, but that will come.

[Wizards Insider]
With the Wizards trailing by two and 4.5 seconds left, Arenas missed his second free throw — which he admitted he didn’t do intentionally — and fought off Richard Hamilton to corral the loose ball. He plenty of time to call timeout, or even take a better shot to force overtime. Instead, Arenas scrambled into the corner and attempted a fall-away three-pointer. “One of those mental errors,” Arenas said afterward.

[Bullets Forever]
I suppose you could’ve said the same thing about Caron Butler’s decision to go for three against the Lakers at the buzzer instead of going for two and the tie. In seasons like this, sometimes you just have to go for the jugular when you get the chance, even if it’s not the highest percentage
play available.

[Washington Times]

“I got a text from [former Wizards coach] Eddie Jordan, who told me: ‘Just go out there and let the game come to you. Don’t expect to go out there and score 30, or don’t expect anything, just play the game the way it’s supposed to be played.'”

[DC Sports Bog]
Maybe the jumper was a little off. Maybe there was some fumbling in the lane. Maybe the patented last-second heroics turned a bit comical. But the yap was in complete mid-season form. Not All-Star level, but not preseason either.

On being introduced fourth, in front of Caron Butler: “That was a little different. That was awkward. But, you know, it’s basketball. It’s just introductions. It’s not like the last person wins a car or anything.”

On why he already broke his no-media pledge: “You know how I am. You know, I’m wishy washy.”
