Arenas: ‘I’m just back to my old self’
Agent Zero is probably long gone. The guy who could fill it up for 20 or 30 or 40 points a night, the one whose playful antics on and off the court were met with cheers rather than conniptions, probably left for good when he was shown the door in Washington for the final 50 games in 2010.
But after missing the first four months of this NBA season following his ouster from Orlando, Gilbert Arenas is back on the court. And that alone is enough to bring out the big grin that was once plastered on the point guard’s face.
“I’m just back to my old self — laid back, funny guy,” Arenas said with a smile after his second game with the Memphis Grizzlies, a 101-85 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center. “Last couple years I was just stressed (laughs). Right now I’m just trying to get back to my own element.”
