Gilbert On the End of His Blog and His New Tats
Gilbert pre-game transcript courtesy Michael Lee.
Gilbert: "I think I got one more blog in me, then no more blogging. I'm going to retire from blogging."
Media: Why? Too much controversy? Too much fun?
Gilbert: "A little bit of both. But media is different than when I came into the league. It's bigger. With YouTube...blogging now is a lot bigger. I don't know, it's like you say something and it gets magnified. You expect it in the playoffs, you say one thing about what team you want to play: 'I want to play them because they made an in-season trade. And through history, in-season trades are usually a disaster....You'll take your chances with those teams.'
'Oh, he's talking and this and this.' "
Media: Do you wish you never blogged that stuff?
Gilbert: "No. I was just saying, this was the only team that made an in-season trade. Look at the other teams that made in-season trades, they're out, other than the Lakers. They're still there. The other teams are out. I'd rather take my chances with them."
Media: When blogging, do you share everything?
Gilbert: "Outside of basketball and doing things at home, I don't do anything. I just go to Chuck E. Cheese. I don't think anybody wants to hear about Chuck E. Cheese, unless something funny happens. Other than that, you just try to give good stories. And, you know, good stories are either going to be funny or drama. You know, TNT: Drama. If you're just boring....I did come in [blogging] with Chris Paul, Jerry Stackhouse and Kaman, but if you have no up or down, you're just a mouth."
Also courtesy of Michael Lee, Gilbert discussed his newish tattoos that blanket his injured left knee.
Gilbert has seven crosses tattooed on his surgically repaired left knee. There is a large cross over his knee cap, with three smaller tattoos on each side. Arenas explained the cross in that he needed to "pray over" his knee. Asked why he has seven crosses, Arenas said, "Lucky number."
When told that seven is also a biblical number that symbolizes perfection, Arenas nodded and shrugged. He explained that he got the larger tattoo after having his initial surgery, then he added the other six while the Wizards were in Orlando for their regular season finale.
