justifying the man-crush.

Gilbert Arenas became a blogosphere-wide man crush (and mine, despite the Nuggets having Iverson, Melo, and J.R. Smith all together now) because he keeps on saying things like this while embracing the lovely interweb medium, where he claims he'd love to go back to college and drop 84 or 85 on Duke just to spite Coach K for leaving him off the U.S. squad.

This man has had a nasty chip on his shoulder since he got shafted out of first-round money in the draft after his Arizona days (where he was a beast), and it's entertaining to watch, read, and listen to -- it's ego without the malice; the anti-Kobe, in a sense.

"I wouldn’t pass the ball. I wouldn’t even think about passing it. It would be like a NBA Live or an NBA 2K7 game, you just shoot with one person."

Doesn't matter what basketball video game you've played; everyone's tried that at least once.

84 or 85?! seems like an arbitrary number, no? how about 100! and when's he gonna break another wilt chamberlain record?

At this rate of pub, Arenas could start taking a run at Wilt's bedroom record.

I once scored 101 points with Paul Pierce on NBA Live 06.
