Gilbert Arenas, the former NBA Allstar point guard who’s also known as Agent Zero, made his mark playing for the Wizards. He was known for making game-changing plays and scoring big shots when they mattered the most. He has transitioned into being an online personality, who takes very controversial stances when commenting on athletes, as well as having a very colorful off-court life during his career.

He sat down with the I AM Athlete podcast for an interview and was able to break down the reason for his most recent interactions online with Kwame Brown, who claims that “Gilbert Arenas is a professional exerciser, a big buff bust, out doing cardio”. Gilbert Arenas responded by saying that Kwame Brown has returned to fame for attacking former Basketball players, and saying that his stance is based on his disgruntled view about being bullied by Michael Jordan in his rookie year as the number one draft pick.

He went on to explain that there were many rookies in that year who didn't get much playing time, but instead of complaining, they hit the gym and got to work. He went on to further explain that Michael Jordan was only there for the first two years of their career and then he retired, and after that each player was competing against others in their own draft class.

Gilbert Arenas has caught a lot of heat online from the community that has sided with Kwame Brown for not being sympathetic about his legacy, and for the first time he was able to explain his perspective. “You can be the best player and keep your head down and go unnoticed, but once you add a little splash to your speech, people start to listen”. Gilbert Arenas said this as he confirmed that he “trolls” athletes online.
