Recently the never filtered and always entertaining Gilbert Arenas joined Kristine Leahy on her talk show Fair Game, where the former basketball player elaborated on a previous statement he made about being paid $62 million to only play in 17 games.
Arenas explained that he was referencing his 2011 exit from the Orlando Magic, where after the NBA lockout he was waived after a newly established amnesty clause.
Reflecting on that time in his career, Arenas laughed while saying: "you know it was funny to me that when the media was laughing at me for getting amnestied, I'm like 'do you know they're going to cut me and give me all of my money', so therefore I'm going to be able to get all my money without actually doing anything."
From there, he pointed out that the 17 games only took place because he decided to sign another contract with the Memphis Grizzlies, while he just as easily could have taken all of his money and left the game from there. "$62 million to sit on the couch?," Arenas said about his previous contract, "sounds amazing to me."
Elsewhere in the interview, Agent Zero also spoke on his game-winning shot in the 2004/05 playoffs against the Chicago Bulls, his 60 point night against Kobe Bryant and the Lakers in 2006, as well as his mindset than in the world of entertainment nothing is off-limits.
