Happy Birthday to “Agent Zero,” Gilbert Arenas! The former Wizards guard turns 32 today, so in honor, here are some of the best moments of his interesting career (in no particular order).
- Highlights from his career-high 60 point night against the Los Angeles Lakers back on December 17, 2006. He went 17-32 and also grabbed 8 rebounds and handed out 8 assists.
- Highlights from a few weeks after the 60 point night when he dropped 51 on the Utah Jazz and also hit a game-winner.
- Highlights from his duel against Tracy McGrady and the Houston Rockets from January 3, 2006. McGrady put up 38 points to lead Houston to a win despite 44 from Arenas.
- Highlights from his matchup with Allen Iverson and the Philadelphia 76ers two months later, on March 3, 2006. Once again, Arenas and the Wizards fell short, despite Arenas putting up 33 points. Iverson dropped 47 on the night for the Sixers. (Bonus: Commentary from Bill Walton.)
- Video of Arenas playing paintball with JaVale McGee and Nick “Swaggy P” Young. Trust me, this is very important.
- Arenas’ game-winner from Game 5 of the Wizards’ first-round playoff series against the Chicago Bulls back in 2005.
- Arenas crossing Kobe Bryant multiple times in the same game. (The footage is a bit grainy.)
- A nice windmill dunk.
- Arenas dunking off of a trampoline at an event hosted by Dwight Howard. (Bonus footage of Howard being a goof.)
- Nick Young claiming that Arenas took the wheels and rims off of his car as a prank when he was a rookie in Washington. (Skip to 3:45 mark.)
- Arenas discussing why he pooped in Andray Blatche’s shoe. (H/T to Kyle Weidie at Truth About It.)
- Arenas telling Vince Carter about his plans to cross Kobe during the All-Star game. (Bonus: Arenas badly bricking a three.)
- #NeverForget: Arenas owned a home with a shark tank and a grotto.
- #NeverForget: Arenas’ sharks died after someone (Arenas claims it was the mother of his children) threw pennies into the shark’s tank.
