Gilbert Arenas Once Put Dog Poop in a Teammates Shoes

There once was a time where the Washington Wizards were once thought to be the next team on the brink to break into the upper echelon of the NBA. But while Gilbert Arenas was assassinating players on the court, his alter ego Agent Zero was doing damage to his teammate’s apparel in the locker room.

In an interview with USA Today, he spoke on an incident where he placed dog feces in his teammates Andray Blatchs’ shoes as revenge for him throwing Arenas’ clothes in the Jacuzzi after accusing Arenas of cutting up his suit.

“It was just dog doo-doo in it. It was really dog doo-doo. … I took his sole out, threw it under there, put the sole back on and threw the baby powder on there so he couldn’t smell it,”

But today, “We’re all friends,” Arenas said of his former teammates today. “We’re still cool. We still talk to each other. Everyone is happy they’re in better places”

Arenas also spoke on the gun incident that led to him being suspended for fifty games and the altercation that took place on the plane;

 “No one actually saw a gun in my hand at all. … I was not pulling a gun on anyone. That’s actual fact,” he says.

Arenas, 30, had previously declined to go into great detail. This is what he says happened:

Then-Wizards center JaVale McGee had beaten Crittenton out of $1,100 in a card game. Wizards guard Earl Boykins loaned McGee $200. McGee didn’t immediately pay back Boykins as he won the money and an argument blossomed. Arenas says he wasn’t involved in the actual bet.

” ‘Pay the man his (expletive) money. You’ve got all my money,’ ” Arenas says Crittenton shouted at McGee. “So I jumped in, ‘Why you talking to your teammates like this? We family.’

“That’s when (Crittenton) started coming at me, ‘(Expletive, racial slur), just because you got all money, this and this and this.’ That’s when we started going back and forth. I didn’t owe him anything. It was over a $1,100 pot he just lost.”

Arenas pauses and sighs when asked how the situation escalated to the point of guns.

“Someone said they were going to shoot me. So since I’m one of those guys who says, ‘I want to see this happen. I want to see you actually shoot me,’ that’s where that came from,” says Arenas, declining to mention that someone by name. “I brought the four guns in and said (in a note), ‘Pick 1, so the day you want to shoot me let me know, I’ll be ready to get shot.’ That’s how.”

What’s interesting is, when the situation happened, no one was interested in what Arenas had to say. Once people heard guns were involved and athletes fighting over money, judgments were made and that was that. From what Arenas is quoted telling USA Today, is not something unreasonable and a stance you’d want the leader of your team to take. Had the guns never been brought into the situation, maybe Arenas would still be in Washington and the fate of the Wizards would be much different.

While many will say, other successful organizations don’t have things like this going on; I would say that we don’t hear about them. Every team has disagreements, they’re together too much not have a quarrel every once in a while, key thing is the leaders are able to handle them and allow cooler heads to prevail.
