Gilbert Arenas to give away all the shoes he wore while watching Jameer Nelson this year

Gilbert Arenas, Stan Van Gundy

Gilbert Arenas is back on Twitter, which is great news for everyone who either a. loves Gil or b. loves making fun of Gil. It’s a win-win, really. Those two groups have a pretty high crossover on the ol’ Ven diagram as well.

Not only is Arenas back on Twitter, but he’s giving away shoes! Shoes he played in in the past year! Now, Arenas says that’s about 70 pairs of shoes. So under that number, here’s a list of some of the things we think Arenas qualifies as “playing in.”

This is a nice thing from Arenas. It’s good that Arenas, a sneaker freak, is willing to part with the shoes for the fans. The bigger concern is Twitter. How long’s it going to take before this goes bad? Over/under is what, a week? Two weeks, since everyone’s distracted with the Finals? Everyone’s excited about it, that’s for sure.

    This guy should give back 80% of his game checks also since he has not earned his money by not playing up to par.

    He also needs to give back $60 million on what’s “owed” to him!!!
