Arenas Showing World That We Are Indeed Fools

"You were fooled because you believed it was about me. I believe it takes five. But you're not a fool, are you?"

Many Adidas commercials boast this slogan promoting teamwork amongst the company's endorsers. Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Tracy McGrady and Gilbert Arenas each reverberate the slogan throughout their individual commercials promoting their personally endorsed shoes. Arenas is part of Adidas' new strong campaign to corner the basketball market. With the Nike's of the world having stars such as Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Kobe Bryant under contract, Adidas might have found themselves a true star under the radar.

With all the current news being about Allen Iverson and his move to Denver, many have failed to honestly recognize the type of season that Gilbert Arenas is having. Arenas has evolved over the past year and a half before the NBA fan's eyes. His true rise to fame came last year in an unforgettable series between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Washington Wizards. Arenas has carried that momentum from last year's playoffs into this season and has improved upon it greatly.

29.2 PPG 4.1 RPG 6.4APG 2.1 SPG

The numbers speak for themselves.

Not Convinced? Well when your stat line reads 60 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists after a game which Kobe Bryant guarded you (and gave a lame excuse for Arenas’ performance), that should solidify your status amongst the elite.

Jerry Colangelo and the rest of USA Basketball skipped over Arenas for the USA roster. Big Mistake.

Vote Gilbert Arenas for the NBA All-Star Game. Only a fool wouldn’t.

But you’re not a fool, are you?

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Hustle (2022)

What is it about? A long-time scout, Stanley Sugarman, grinds out the life of an NBA scout and the politics of the NBA by taking a chance on a prospect he believes in to change both of their lives.  Who is in it? Adam Sandler - Stanley Sugarman Juancho Hernangomez - Bo Cruz Queen Latifah - Teresa Sugarman Favorite Scene:   Kermit and Bo line up at center court and Kermit begins the trash talk to get inside of Bo's head, eventually taking him off his game.  Favorite Quote:   "I'll say one last inspirational thing to you: they can't kill you if you're already dead." Review:  Hustle sat on "My List" on my Netflix account for quite a long time. Parked on the couch in the middle of the night with a newborn, and jonesing for some hoops, I dove in on what I read (and heard from others) was a "really good film". I'll give away the suspense, I thought Hustle was decent. It felt too cliche and had little depth, but still, a really good film.  The
