Gilbert Gambles with $5 Bills

(Jonathan Newton - TWP)

Last night kept open, in my mind at least, the possibility that this Wiz season might be saved from a won-loss standpoint, and now ESPN the Mag's Alejandro de los Rios has rekindled my hopes that this Wiz season can be saved from a blogging standpoint. Here's an excerpt of what happens when Gilbert attempts to gamble at Harrah's with $20,000 in $5 increments:

Unfortunately, the plan didn't work.

"They wouldn't cash all the fives," he said. "It would've taken 25 minutes to count and I saw the look on everyone's faces and said 'forget it.'"
That's right. Gilbert Arenas showed up to a casino with a wad of $5 bills and then decided to forget the whole thing when he realized how long it would take to count.

Then Gil had a half-court shooting contest with Chris Paul. Gil appears to have lost.

Four thousand $5 bills?

I'm trying to picture this....OK, I have 20 bills of various denominations in my wallet, so I know how big that is. Multiply that by 10, and that's already a pretty big-a** roll. Take that 200 bill roll and multiply that by 20...I don't think I'm buying this. That much in $5 bills would be about like a 8-pack of Charmin.

What, did he dump the money out of his Barry Farm rec league bag onto the table?

Why did a half court shot in a pre-game shoot-around make the four-letter-networks Top 10?
