Gilbert Arenas, once known as “Agent Zero,” has hatched a plan to watch Kobe Bryant and fans say goodbye to each other.
Arenas used Instagram on Thursday to lobby the Los Angeles Lakers to sign him to a 10-day contract in April. Why? So he can watch Kobe Bryant’s final NBA game — on April 13 against the Utah Jazz at Staples Center — from the comfort of the team’s bench. Bryant’s finale probably is the Lakers’ hottest ticket in an otherwise dismal season, and Arenas couldn’t guarantee his attendance through conventional means.
“…(Lakers owners) Buss you gotta let me be down..give ya boy a #10day from (april 3rd-13th) ill pay for the seat…,” Arenas pleaded.
Arenas, 34, hasn’t played in an NBA game since 2012, but his 11 years of experience and former All-Star status makes us wonder how serious he is about making a cameo comeback.
Let’s consider Arenas trying to score the best ticket his basketball skills could possibly buy.
