    Haha, no way... Arenas makes Harden look like a PhD. Harden might goto the club but he's not a ****ing dumbass on social media or bringing guns to the locker room.

    Agent Zero is in his own class of idiocy. Hell, he makes anyone look brilliant, I'm starting to think he doesn't understand how the Internet works.

    It's the bragging on Instagram part that really makes this next-level stupidity. As far as fraud goes it sounds like he was getting away with it, and as mentioned before he's not the first athlete to think he can get away with fraud (tax or otherwise), but to post his scheme on Instagram to the general public? :eek:

    Time for Credit card companies to add in the "Gilbert Arenas Clause"

    Yeah, because whatever supposedly happened when Dirk was supposedly "defrauded by a stripper" (what are you even talking about) is exactly the same as what Gilbert Arenas did here. :rolleyes:

    Arenas is a known troll. There is just as good a chance that his story is a complete fabrication. Only American Express knows.

    Haha if he's trolling AMEX I'm not sure they'll understand his sense of humor too well. He's also a complete moron so either could be completely true. Pretty sad that his only relevance as a human being these days is his idiotic behavior.

    Throwing $40,000 at a strip club? Taking the other $40,000 home? Then calling it all in as fraudulent? Didn't he make $100,000,000+ million in the NBA? Why do something so petty? You can take the kid out the hood....
