Gilbert mulls another uniform change
Fair warning before you rush out and buy those No. 6 Arenas jerseys; Gilbert might not be done changing just yet.
"It is possible, and perhaps likely, that Gilbert Arenas will decide to change his number on his Wizards uniform this coming season," Ted Leonsis wrote on Thursday. "So, if you purchase a Gilbert Arenas jersey today and his number changes, I wanted to give you all fair warning. I think that is the honest and fair thing to do. So heads up ASAP. I apologize in advance if this number change causes any inconvenience. Thank you."
After some question about whether this meant a switch from the previously chosen No. 6, Leonsis revisited the issue.
"As to Gilbert's number, yes, he would like a different number than new number 6 -- more as it develops."
And since people seem interested in Ernie Grunfeld's comments about Gilbert, here's what he had to say last week on the Scott Van Pelt show, after he was asked whether the glut of teams clearing cap space might make Gilbert seem more attractive around the league after the free-agent dust settles.
"Well, I think there's a lot of attractive players around the league that have talent, and he's definitely one of them," Grunfeld said, "but we feel like he's gonna be a very good solid player for us. I think people forget that last year before that situation in the locker room, he was averaging 23 points and over 7 assists. And he didn't miss the rest of the season because or injury; he missed it because of the suspension. So he's a young player, he's only 28 years old, and he's an outstanding player. There aren't many players in this league that can get you 20 points on a nightly basis."
It's probably better if I stop transcribing every word on this subject and just wait to see what happens.
