But, according to Gilbert, he intends to be on the court in his Agent Zero uniform.
“That game, playing against Detroit, Saturday’s the plan,” Gilbert said.
It’s good to have a plan.
It might also be good to include interim coach Ed Tapscott and general manager Ernie Grunfeld in the plan, but who knows whether that happened. Based on his track record, the committee that makes decisions about Gilbert Arenas and the Wizards exists inside Gilbert’s head.
Arenas said the original plan was for him to come back Monday against Chicago but that team trainers and doctors wanted to have a sit-down, map out a plan and limit his minutes.
“But I wasn’t going for that,” Arenas said. “I don’t have discussions on game days. And I don’t want them to monitor my minutes. I want them to treat me like a normal player. Monitoring my minutes was part of my problem last year. I’d go in for six minutes, sit for 12 minutes, be cold. I want to just play.”
How about that? Gilbert doesn’t even talk to team employees on game days. I wonder whether the coach is included in that?
“I wasn’t going for that.” …
“I don’t want them to monitor my minutes.” …
“I want to just play.” …
I. I. I. I.
Sense a pattern here?
Gilbert said he will play only home games, except for the April 8 game in Cleveland and perhaps the season finale against Boston.
Got that, Ed? Are you listening, Ernie?
Maybe Gilbert texted them before he texted Chris Miller of Comcast Sportsnet to tell him he planned to play Saturday, which is how the news broke.View Entire Story
