Former three-time All-Star Gilbert Arenas was a recent guest on the I Am Athlete. He talked about the infamous gun in the locker room incident with former teammate Javaris Crittenton during his appearance. According to Bleacher Report, Crittenton is now serving 23 years in prison after agreeing to a murder plea in 2015, according to Bleacher Report.
Also during his appearance, Arenas shared a story about the G.O.A.T Michael Jordan.
“I was at MJ camp for two years, so I know MJ mindset. I was the first person to waive MJ off at the camp. Because he called me Randy Brown. Listen I had 40 the first night feeling myself, right? Nobody knows who I am feeling myself. He’s like you remind me of a player on my team, I’m like you, Pip? Randy Brown! Randy Brown number one, the hustler… I can’t wait until the game tonight. He ain’t never getting this ball back and that’s what I did,” said Arenas.
What did MJ say to Arenas?
‘Nothing! If you want the ball from me, you better get it off the glass. That was my mentality!”
Over the years, we heard some of the craziest stories involving MJ on the record and off, depending on the circles you travel in. The latest story involving Idris Elba, who was on one of the latest episode of Complex’s ‘Sneaker Shopping.’
Idris Elba revealed that he once asked Jordan to play him in a film. Michael Jordan declined.
“I even said to him one time, ‘I want to play you,'” Elba told host Joe La Puma. “He was like, ‘Hm, I’m not ready yet.’ That’s what he said, ‘I’m not ready yet.’ … I was dead serious.
He continued: “In my head, playing Jordan wouldn’t be about playing the basketball player; it was about the businessman. He is a very astute businessman, really smart. And his work as a philanthropist is, like, unspoken, but people don’t understand the work. He cares; he does a lot of work. So that’s where I was hinting at. I wanna play Jordan – I’m doing that. He was like, ‘Ah, I’m not ready for that story yet.'”
Speaking of Jordan, Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons shared that we miss watching him, but all said Warriors Steph Curry in will be the greatest point guard in 20 years.
“Bro I can’t cap !! We missed watching Jordan!!! But I promise you in 20 years y’all not gonna be able to tell me Steph curry wasn’t the greatest pg ever!! I watch this man live!! Parsons Tweeted.
Parsons was in attendance for game three of the Western Conference Finals between the Mavericks and the Warriors in Dallas.
