Gilbert Arenas on Free Agency: Not Without My Antawn


From Gilbert Arenas' latest blog post on NBA.com:

I want to be back in Washington, but weird things happen in free agency. If Antawn is not back, then there's no point in me coming back because he's part of my success, too. When you're doing pick and roll with a player like him, they can't double you, they can't trap you because you have a pick and pop guy who can shoot the three at your four position. My success is because of him too. If he doesn't come back, I'm not coming back.

I know everybody is focusing on whether I'm coming back, but I'm focusing on what he's doing. If he doesn't come back, then I'm not coming back.

We talked about it before, but I'm going to let him be his own man. At the end of the season, people don't like the way the season ends and everyone is a little heated, so you know you have to give time for everybody and let everybody breathe first before you start talking about two months from now.
