For about a month there, Gilbert Arenas had fallen out of favor as the blogosphere's brightest NBA star. He came off as a dick in that DeShawn Stevenson bet, the Wizards lost several games in a row, and Agent Zero came up with only 9 points when he promised 50 against the Blazers.
However, last night Gil scored 43 against the Kings as the Wiz held off a late Sacramento rally to win 109-106. Yay! He's good again! Everybody back on the bandwagon!
Actually, the biggest story of the game was the official review that kept the game from going into overtime. John Salmons appeared to hit a game-tying three-pointer as the buzzer sounded, but the referees huddled and determined Salmons didn't quite get the shot off in time.
Man, I can understand that. I once gave a girlfriend her Valentine's Day present at 12:01 a.m. on February 15th, and it didn't fly at all. Of course, I was blind drunk and that gift was a pint of Mad Dog 20/20, but I thought it was damn nice of me to share.
