Agent Zero is back.
“I think a lot of people watched the first year to try and figure out the speed of it, and when I watched it I was like, ‘Whoosh, they’re really going, they’re really playing basketball.’ So I don’t think I’m trained and prepared for that sport right there,” Arenas said. “It’s one of those things where I need to train like I’m playing in the NBA again ’cause I’m not gonna let them get the best of me. So I got four and a half months (to get ready).”
This year Arenas joins former Wizards and Maryland guard Steve Blake, Lamar Odom, Will Bynum, Kendrick Perkins, Bobby Gibson, Carlos Arroyo, and Perry Jones III as Big3 newcomers.
When asked who he wanted to join him, Arenas asked for Wizards teammates who wouldn't steal his shots.
“I want all my Wizards teammates that didn’t shoot the ball,” he said. “I want Etan (Thomas). Brendan Haywood, I want DeShawn Stevenson, Kwame Brown. You know, they already know my style.
"Eddie Jordan, where you at? We already know the plays,” Arenas said.
