    He's only 29, I don't understand why his game declined so much after a few off-court incidents.

    knee surgeries, lack of motivation after a sudden surge early in his career

    you need to watch more basketball man, this guy ain't half the player he was before.

    He's just a chucker now.

    I know, I just don't understand why.

    I know now Stephon Marbury had a precipitous decline in the NBA largely due to lack of motivation. Could be the same for Arenas.

    The millions have made him uninspired and unfocused.

    Sometimes guys make so much money that they just "check-out".

    NBA teams just notified that Gilbert Arenas, released by Orlando via the amnesty clause, has cleared waivers and becomes free agent

    So no cap-room teams chose to bid on Arenas and he's free to negotiate w/anyone. Told he hopes to land on same team that trades for Dwight

    is it an amnesty waive or just a regular waive?

    He cleared waivers and is a free agent now.

    He wants to ride Dwight's jockstrap and sign with whatever team Howard ends up on.

    Gilbert Arenas expected to attract some interest from the Nets. D-Will recently asked about him and expressed interest, source says.
