Gilbert Arenas fakes a knee injury: TwitterWorld reacts

Tweet your take on Gilbert Arenas "knee injury" to me:

Tracy Rotton: did he take notes from laron landry? #arenasfakekneeinjury

Brian Dent: It shows he is childish and has still not grown up from the gun incident. Hard to believe he is the face of our franchise.

Gary Pilkerton: not sure why everyone believes him when he says stuff like that... his knee was sore, Nick had a big game, he's kidding IMO

Ajay Gupta: I'm sure he faked faking an injury. We need 2 trade him ASAP 2 anyone 4 anything. Just get him out of town.

Chris Cardno: Let him take his talents to South Beach, New York, Lithuania or back to Mars. Just get that lunatic away from the Wizards.

Philip B. Senerchia: My guess is he's faking the faking - either that, or he's not long for this town.

Robert Moran: Sounds like a typical Arenas stunt. He needs to be in game shape not promoting someone the coach should evaluate.

Kifalme Nyundo: Find a way to trade him. Doing that is beyond inmature. Couldn't Areans talked to his coach first? Welcome to DC J Wall!!

Jarem: if I had to guess the team knew he didnt have an injury & just wanted to see NY play...everyone is taking out too seriously

Dave Thomas: It was a childish act. Playing time is Saunders decision not his.

ADH: Really awesome right up to the point when he started blabbing about it. But I still have a soft spot for Gilbert.

Harry C. Marshall II: terrible what is his deal just play bball and zip it

Sam Betts:/a> Gilbert just does not know when to keep quiet I'm pretty sure he has fans that paid to see him play if he was healthy.

Mr. T: Why waste a good tweet on this guy. (agent 000)

Chrismoore06: I don't have a problem with what Gil did...it's the preseason, who cares.

Jake White: He should be suspended.

From the email machine:

Neil Jacobs (Neil in Rockville) sends an open letter to Wizards owner Ted Leonsis:

Dear Mr. Leonsis:

I congratulate you on your recent purchase of the Washington Wizards and the signing of John Wall. Unfortunately however it seems that you are unable to deal with the re-occurring issues surrounding Gilbert Arenas' behavior. I, like many, believe that Gil's behavior is not induced by any bad intent, just constant stupidity. I give you and the previous ownership teams credit for your attempts to salvage he and his career, but it seems that all your efforts are for naught, and Gil keeps hurting Gil and the team. I therefore commend for your reading the epic Steinbeck novel "Of Mice and Men" and hope that you take metaphoric inspiration from it to do what you know ultimately must be done.

Good luck and G-d speed.

Neil Jacobs

"I give you (sic) and the previous ownership teams (sic) credit for your attempts to salvage he (sic) and his career."

Neil Jacobs ought to go back to junior high and learn English before ever writing another poorly argued open letter to anyone. And judging from Neil's 7th grade level writing, I'm guessing Gilbert Arenas is not "induced" by "constant stupidity"--whatever that means--nearly as much as Neil.

Barno1 you are my hero. I couldn't even finish reading Neil's poorly written e-mail. I wish I could meet you in person and shake your hand.

And to those that want to trade gilbert please review the rooster for the Wizards. Besides John Wall, who we got by luck (YES LUCK. THE CHANCES OF GETTING THE NUMBER ONE PICK WERE NOT IN OUR FAVOR), we have nobody that can finish. All our players (save Wall) are streaky or unproven.

Shame on you for even thinking of trading Gil when all he was trying to do was give a teammate a chance to improve in a preseason game that doesn't even matter.

And if you go back and watch saunder's entire interview he says that Gil and Nick talked to him about playing time, but he decided that Gil should start anyway. It's a preseason game and the coach doesn't even experiment with different line-ups. Flip isn't a bad coach but he isn't the smartest.
