You May Want To Hold Off On Ordering Those New No. 6 Gilbert Arenas Jerseys

There have been rumors circulating that Gilbert Arenas wants a new number, even newer than the six he changed it to midway through last season. Many have considered those rumors a sign that Arenas may be on his way out of town. As always, Ted Leonsis keeps us in the fold on his blog.

As to Gilbert’s number, yes, he would like a different number than new number 6 — more as it develops. And as a great man once said, “there are times when a cigar is only a cigar.” Don’t read so much into every little pixel and statement generated, ok. :-) It will drive you all crazy… This isn’t the Da Vinci Code. I will be direct when I need to be. No morse code here.

It's refreshing to have an owner who is this honest, as well as one who wields the emoticon so readily. So what do we know? We know Gil wants to be a number other than zero and six next season and that his request has nothing to do with his future with the organization. Hm, that's not so bad. Thanks Ted.
