This is the same guy who went into a Hikikomori in February, wearing Do Not Disturb signs around his neck before getting antsy for attention and divulging that he'd been secretly practicing weeks later.
The same guy who set off a fury by text messaging Comcast's Chris Miller with the "truth" about a possible return, and then becoming more wishy-washy than Hugh Hefner regarding a monogamous relationship when faced with follow-up inquiries.
To equate the world of Agent Zero with a circus would be an insult to the big top.
Is Arenas a nouveau "boy who cried wolf" (or attention desiring prima donna crying "leave me alone" on the outside, but "please don't" on the inside)?
As Carter prepares to leave the antiquated print media stylings of the Post for the paper's television interests at Comcast, he's been dropping parting shot hints towards the franchise that pampers their superstar.
Carter wrote Monday, "The man with the guaranteed $111 million contract is calling the shots, not the organization that gave it to him."
And on Tuesday, "[Arenas] loves the attention, craves it in fact and he plays for an organization that has coddled and enabled him to the point that he knows he can do what he wants, when he wants and nobody says anything."
Which begs the question, can the Wizards ever win with a card like Arenas? Does LeBron James, and did Michael Jordan, not have their respective organizations under their thumb?
Or does Arenas' self absorption trump the drive for the glory of a ring? Wiz Nation can only hope the guy is healthy enough to find out.
