Mayweather is a smarter fighter today but he doesn’t have the...

Gilbert Arenas Maybe Won $100k on Wizards Last Night

No way to verify if Arenas is a mini-Floyd Mayweather or not, but the Sports Grid caught Gilbert arguing with some fans on Instagram when he dropped this nugget. Seems a bit off because I don’t believe the Wizards were 10-1 underdogs, but you never know with Agent Zero.
