Gilbert Arenas

February 23, 2012 by staff 

Gilbert Arenas, Gilbert Jay Arenas, Jr. ( born January 6, 1982) is an American professional basketball player who last played for the Orlando Magic of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He plays as a point guard and shooting guard.

Arenas attended Grant High School in Valley Glen, California, and accepted a scholarship offer to the University of Arizona late in his junior year. He entered the 2001 NBA Draft and was selected in the second round (30th pick) by the Golden State Warriors.

Arenas is a three-time NBA All-Star, three-time member of the All-NBA Teams, and was voted the NBA Most Improved Player in the 2002-03 season. Arenas was most often nicknamed “Agent Zero,” due to his jersey number, but has increasingly been referred to as “Hibachi,” a nod to the small Japanese heating device, which literally translates to “bowl of fire.” Both names have quickly become fan favorites in the Washington area.

Arenas was suspended for most of the 2009-10 season because of handgun violations stemming from an episode on December 24, 2009, and for subsequent actions that appeared to make light of this episode.

In late 2010, Arenas was traded from the Washington Wizards to the Orlando Magic.

On December 9, 2011, Arenas was waived by the Orlando Magic.
