Gilbert in College: Two Pairs of Socks
Apologies for my absence. Was caught up reading old Gilbert Arenas stories from the Daily Wildcat.
On his first game: "Loren [Woods] made me comfortable," Arenas said. "He told me to do what I do best, and that's score, rebound and play defense." (Only that? Nice photo.)
A few days later, on whether he likes playing defense: "I wouldn't say that," Arenas said. "No team likes playing defense."
Gilbert and Awvee. Really.
"I was watching him during warm-ups and he was shooting great. I was like man, if he comes and hits 60 points on me I'm gonna be furious," Arenas said. "When we started play he was just running around and I was like, 'oh man, 40 minutes, and he isn't going to stop running, so I was like, 'I might as well just run with him.'"
And also this: "Earlier today when we were getting ready to go I had one pair of socks on, and I was like, 'I'm going to put my second pair on just for offense-just in case'," Arenas said. "I put both pairs on and went out there played."
After scoring 29 against House the next time they met: "I told him to go make that money, don't worry about us," Arenas said to House after the game.
I have a crucial lunch date, so I had to give up after that. Still, I will go to lunch happy in the knowledge that Gilbert once put on a second pair of socks just for offense, just in case.
