Arenas Says Jordan Knew When He'd Return Last Year

Gilbert Arenas was a rather noisy presence at Wiz practice on Tuesday. He was shooting around with his teammates after practice ended, with DeShawn Stevenson falling over with laughter while claiming Gilbert's knee buckled when he tried to take a running jumper, and Caron Butler then trying to order Gilbert back over to the bench.

And then Gilbert caused a major ruckus in the interview room, after completing an exclusive one-on-one with Comcast SportsyNet. I'm not sure exactly what he was saying, but judging by the reaction of CSN's excitable camera person Brooks, it was evidently the funniest conversation in the history of the spoken language.

Anyhow, the SportsyNet is running the conversation in three parts today. Still haven't seen the main attraction--Gilbert discussing his upcoming wedding--but the network made available this portion where Gilbert discusses his return against the Bucks last season. Here's the money line:

Everybody thought it was like a surprise. No, coach knew....People were like, 'Oh the coaches, they're not on the same page,' and this and this. I'm like, 'I'm not gonna even....' "

So I guess it was just a giant misunderstanding from the media. And I guess Eddie Jordan didn't actually say this after the game:

Anyhow, at least Gilbert seems happy.

Good thing the used up all that energy on silliness before last night's game.

Ok, ok...I'm being unreasonably bitter.

But how you gonna come out with zippo energy in the first game of the year?'s good to know with this new commenter sign-up system that you can't comment on two different posts within a given amount of time.

You have to be annoyed trying to keep up with this guy by now. I know we all love him and Washington needs him, but I'm finding it hard to stomach the quirkiness when there's no play to validate it.
