Agent [Less Than] Zero, Monday Breakdown

After a recent loss, Gilbert Arenas was interviewed about his progress and if he'll see the court this season. He replies,

"I don't know. I mean, seven wins? Would you?" said the three-time All-Star, who last July signed a six-year, $111 million contract to remain in the District.

Yes Gilbert, I would play if I could. You just signed a contract for $111 Million. You play because the fans, the organization, your teammates and coaches all invested into you. I thought I was pissed about this...Breakin' reader and long-time Wiz fan James chimed in;

Simply saying that I'm mad would understate how I feel right now. No matter what happens, I will never root for him again and I hope he never plays again. Hopefully there is a way to void his contract! A disgrace to professional basketball, and he has sabotaged my team for years.


On to the Breakdown...

*The Cavs are now the best team in basketball (just don't' tell the Lakers, who post a slightly better record). King James and his Cavs reign supreme in both the NBA.com and ESPN.com power rankings. To top it off, the numbers agree, and they're also the top spot in Hollinger's rankings.

*The Painted Area asks if LeBron James is better than Larry Bird. "Statistically, there is no question that LeBron is better at 24....[however]...It's nearly impossible to argue that LeBron is better, period, at this point simply b/c he has neither the 3 championships nor the 3 MVPs on his resume."

*In response to Steve Nash's free throw skills...my boy Dave wants to see him take on this 81-year-old who sank 2,750 (!) free throws in a row.

*There is trade chatter in the air...and it should only get louder with the Febuary 19th deadline approaching. The latest talk is that a deal is close to being finished, sending Mike Conley Jr to Milwaukee for Ramon Sessions and Joe Alexander. I think this is a horrible move, considering Mike Conley has had his chances and yet to prove himself as a solid NBA point guard. Meanwhile, Ramon Sessions is an assist machine who only gets better as he gets more playing time. Add to that the fact that it is way too early to give up on the 8th pick of the draft. Look at Toronto, they're still trying to make it work with their #1 bust, Andrea Bargnani.

*Ken Berger reports on the recent Thunder/Bobcats/Dallas talks, and why they're on hold...for now...
