Klosterman on Arenas

Chuck Klosterman has an article in the NY Times "Play" magazine on Gilbert Arenas. If you like Klosterman, this is a must read. If you don't know who Klosterman is, you need to read this and find out. If you don't like Klosterman, we can't be friends.

I don't really follow the Wiz all that closely, so I know who Arenas is, but I wasn't aware of all his "quirks." There are two great quotes in the article. The first one made me an Arenas fan for life:

Arenas claims he would sacrifice an entire N.B.A. season to play one game against Duke, solely to punish its head coach, Mike Krzyzewski, who, as the head coach for the United States team competing in the world championship last year, cut Arenas from the squad.

The second one almost made me laugh out loud in the middle of class:

The number of clandestine hyperbaric chambers in the N.H.L. remains unclear.

Read the article, it'll make sense then.

You know I hate the NBA, but if I could find one of those old Smashing Pumpkins "ZERO" shirts, I'd wear it and sit in the front row at a Wizards game. Agent Zero is the hibachi bomb.
