The rumors of Gilbert Arenas to the Lakers have been flying around the internet for weeks and one of the biggest question marks about Arenas has been his surgically repaired knee from two years ago. Last year, Arenas was with the Orlando Magic and it was pretty easy to see that Gilbert was not quite back yet from the knee injury.
Recently, Gilbert’s former teammate, Nick Young, let out the secret that Arenas had the same surgery that Kobe Bryant had this summer in Germany.
“Yea, he’s been working out. He said he got the — I don’t know if I’m supposed to say this — but he got that Kobe treatment on his knees… [reporter makes joke about The Kobe System] “Yea, yea… you could say it’s the Kobe System, but he said it feels great, his knees feel great, and he’s been working out.”
Now, we all know that Arenas had a private workout yesterday in front of Lakers officials. If Arenas has learned from the mistakes of the past and if he’s healthy and he looks anything close to the videos we found below (thank you twitter), there could be some Gil-sanity going on in LA soon!
A little fuzzy, but it sure looks like how Gilbert moves:
