Arenas Doesn’t Think Boston Will Lose Now

November 2, 2007

Gilbert Arenas was talking tough in the preseason about facing the remodeled Celtics. Writing to fans in his blog, Arenas said “you might as well just cheer for me, because Boston isn’t winning in Boston for the season opener. I’m sorry.”

“On November 2nd, we’re going to go into that building, we’re opening up Boston,” Arenas wrote. “Right now I’m telling the Boston fans: You guys are going to lose. It’s not going to be a victory for Boston.”

“You’re only going to see me twice! Me and my handsome self. I got a fresh cut for the Boston and Indiana fans. Break out the Arenas jerseys. I’m coming to town.”

He’s from Los Angeles and has become a star, one of the league’s highest-scoring players and an engaging personality who would embrace the Hollywood scene. He would meet the Lakers’ demands for an All-Star player if they trade Bryant.

“Watch out for them,” the general manager said, meaning the Wizards.
