Quote of the Day: Gilbert Arenas was filling teammate’s bathtubs with coffee beans at Arizona

Gilbert Arenas china AP

“(Gilbert Arenas) had a prank for every city we went to. He was filling bath tubs with coffee beans, and putting coins in the keyhole so you couldn’t put your key in there anymore. He liked to have a good time.”

—Luke Walton, former Arizona Wildcat then NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers (now a Lakers’ studio analyst), speaking with ProBasketballTalk.

He also talked about how much loved playing with Arenas, who was a crazy 17-year-old when Walton first met him at Arizona. Walton has nothing but fond memories of the hibachi.

We will have more from Luke and his father Bill Walton both on the PBT Podcast and The Extra Pass tomorrow morning, talking a little Jack Ramsey, a little Portland Trail Blazers and even some Clippers and what Doc Rivers means to them.

    Yeah, Arenas was great. Agent 0 forever. That was a fun thing while it lasted.

      Dude had ice water flowing through his veins. Those crazy 30 ft game winners and celebrations before they even went in. Dropping 60 on Kobe. What a shame it ended so fast.

      RIP Hibachi

        Kobe thumbs downed this twice. Get over it man.

      And then Javaris Crittenton decided to keep it real, and ruined the good times

      As a Wizards’ season ticketholder, I still have nightmares about this.

    The Minnesota Vikings=greatest sports franchise.PERIOD

    • asimonetti88 - Feb 5, 2014 at 11:02 AM

      the most memorable Vikings moment was a defensive lineman recovering a fumble and running the wrong way. hardly the greatest sports franchise.
