Gilbert won't be making friends in Milwaukee any time soon with these comments about the Richard Jefferson trade:
"Richard Jefferson going to Milwaukee …. HAHAHA! Oh man, now that is funny. When I heard that, I started laughing. Oh man, did I start laughing. You know why? Because every player hates Milwaukee. Nobody wants to live in Milwaukee. I’m sorry, Milwaukee, to come down hard on you, but no one in the NBA wants to play in Milwaukee. From him going from New Jersey, actually from New York (because he lives in New York), from New York to Milwaukee is like going … let’s just say it’s not going to sit well with you. That was a funny one when I heard that one. I know Yi is happy though."(Source)Ouch. Although what he's saying is mostly true, you've got to be smarter than that. Next time the Wiz visit the Bucks, Agent Zero will not receive a warm reception, it's safe to assume. One thing I admire about Arenas, though, is that he tells it like it is and isn't afraid of the hellstorm that will probably follow.
