Gilbert Arenas’ home — complete with shark tank — back on market

Arenas shark tank

You want a home with a shark tank? You got a cool $3.5 million lying around?

If the answer to both of those questions is “yes” then you are just like me and we both have to be considering buying Gilbert Arenas’ Virginia mansion, which was on, went off, and is now back on the market according to (hat tip to The Big Lead).

Arenas is out of the NBA after a career that for a time had him as one of the best scorers and most entertaining players in the game. But it spiraled at the end and got ugly with a suspension for bringing a gun into the locker room. Arenas and the league have moved on.

But the house… you could throw a Hugh Hefner level party in this place. If you look at the photos of this house, it is so Gilbert Arenas — there are fish tanks everywhere. The home has a grand entrance that leads to a round fish tank in the lobby. Head out back and there is a pool with a grotto. Just check out the slide show, it does this better justice than words.

    Dude likes fish. Not exactly Weebay from the Wire but he’s got at least 200% more fishtanks than I do.

    ….but does it come WITH the shark? That’s the real question.

      I doubt it, wouldn’t the shark be his “pet”.

      If you had a dog house in the backyard, would you leave your dog if you were to move out?

        I bet Shark Protective Services has the Shark.

    Surprised no one giving him a chance to make it back to the NBA.

    His knees must be shot but good.

    I definitely give him props for having such good taste, that place is not low rent or gawdy whatsoever. As long as you don’t trash the place & the market doesn’t crash (which it did), a big ass, nice house is a good investment.

    Who does sharks anymore? It’s all about octopus now.

    High I’m Troy Mclure, you might remember me from such films as “Today we kill, tomorrow we die, and Leper in the backfield.
