Gilbert Arenas Has An Interesting Tactic To Get Courtside For Kobe Bryant’s Last Home Game

There are plenty of athletes who just need to go away, but I’m not sure there’s one I want to see disappear more than former NBA All-Star Gilbert Arenas.

The man known as “Agent Zero” has remained in the news for a couple reasons over the past year or so—none of which look good for him, like this and this—but Arenas made headlines the other day when he posted an Instagram pic asking the L.A. Lakers to sign him to a 10-day contract so that he could take in Kobe Bryant’s last home game in the NBA.

Arenas, who is from L.A., found out that tickets to see Bryant’s final home game in the Staples Center are sold out—shocking right?—so is trying to use his balling/negotiation skills to land with the Lakes for a courtside view of The Black Mamba’s finale, and he’ll even PAY for his own seat on the bench.

The full caption from Gil reads like this:

Just tried to get courtside seats to #Kobes Last home game #smdh #SOLDOUT…..But yall know I keeps a backup plan… I look at the end of the lakers bench AND realize what #hibbert #metta @swaggyp1 been doing all season #WatchingKobesLastSeason in those NICE #CourtsideSeats….Buss you gotta let me be down..give ya boy a #10day from (april 3rd-13th) ill pay for the seat…I dont want the seat #metta sits in…that shit so far in the corner, I thought that n***a was security last time he wore all blk #NOTHX…..dont sit me next to #nick or #hibbert they #downsyndrome looks like its catchable, NOT paying top dolla to catch what them two #n****s look like they got #NOTHX hahahaha Just as long as im on the left side of that bighead n***a #sacre NO offence bra I wanna see the #Mamba not a life size #bobblehead version of #Mrclean AND far away from #byronscott as possible…the way he coaches, hes liable put anyone in whos sitting next to him (jack nickelson #batman go get #russell and u guard #cousin’s #playhard) hahahaha ..can somebody let me know who I can contact for My request demands hahahahaha

Arenas was once a freakin’ offensive star in the league, but now he’s just a sideshow—although, if this works, he’ll be a mad genius.
