Gilbert Arenas and Nick Young, happy

By Dan Steinberg


Try to watch this video of a happy Gilbert Arenas joined by a happy, hatted Nick Young without smiling. 'Tis impossible.

"Hey, my man, I want to say thank you," Young says, interrupting the interview abd referring to the pass that led to his game-winning three.

"No problem, any time, you know how we do," Gilbert responds.

"Appreciate that," Young says.

"Actually, this goes back to the preseason," Chris Miller adds, now referring to the time Gilbert benched himself so Young could get a start. "You did him a solid; look what happens, his confidence grows."

"That solid cost me $50,000, though, that solid cost me $50,000," Gilbert points out.

"I made him look good, that's what it's for," Young says while walking away. "I ain't got $50,000 just to hand to somebody."

Then it's just Gilbert, who compliments Miller on his suit and says his wife must be happy.

You are right. Impossible to watch that without smiling.

Nice to see Gilbert happy. He just looks more like Gilbert when he's smiling.

Last night was fun to watch - wish I would have gone down to Verizon for it.

Don't be fooled, he still wants off this team and outta this town.

Winning cures alot of problems. If this team starts winning Gilbert won't be the only one smiling.

playahatah, you're screen name says it all. You really are a hater and as a result, your comments are just absurd. Gilbert clearly loves this city and this team, and most importantly he loves his teammates. That is blatantly obvious to everyone...except you.

Great video Steinz. As I said all along, the Gilbert haters will be eating their words all season long (and for many more seasons to come).

Which is fine - so long as he's playing well, healthy and staying out of trouble. Whether he wants to stay is immaterial until he has some trade value - and right now he's just a giant contract with a lot of question marks. If he's showing some of the Gilbert 2003-2007 spark and being a team player, then he and the Wizards can take it from there.

Nah, I'll settle for some of his 2009/10 spark where he was the only player in the NBA averaging more than 22 points and 7 assists per game.

The shortness of memory by DC area sports fans never ceases to amaze me.

And then suspended for three months and convicted of a felony - after two knee injuries. Great season for his Wizards and trade value.

Lies, damn lies and statistics.
