Gilbert's Vendetta Against Flip
Dan Steinberg has dug up some vintage Gilbertology. Remember the Eastern Conference Assassin? Well, Arenas once vowed to get back at Flip Saunders -- possibly the next Wizards coach -- because of a perceived all-star snub.
The AP reported back in 2006:
Arenas said his teammates were fired up because of his ongoing revenge tour against Eastern Conference coaches, who as a group didn't select him for the All-Star game. Arenas made the All-Star game only as a late injury replacement, and he played the fewest minutes of any East player. Detroit coach Flip Saunders was the East's coach. "I said that I was going to get Flip back," Arenas said. "My team was behind me, they were ready to go. Easy way to get them riled up."
For what it's worth ...
