Last night at the Verizon Center there was a secret pick-up game played between several NBA players, including a few All-Stars. Taking part in the game was Gilbert Arenas, whose performance was witnessed by owner Ted Leonsis:

Last night there was a pick-up game played at Verizon Center on our practice court. There were many NBA players in attendance and a few NBA All-Stars played as well. I stumbled into watching purely by accident.

Gilbert Arenas played last night. It was a very good evening of basketball. Gil - our All-Star - matched up against another NBA All-Star. It was quite a show and quite a display of talent.

I won’t comment yet on Gilbert or who was in the gym last night but suffice to say Gilbert looked trim, fit and explosive. His shot was sweet and he did one left handed dunk that was something to see. It had everyone talking. I was impressed and am happy.

It is too bad that Ted is not one to kiss and tell. I want to know who Arenas was guarding! Are we talking about a recent NBA All-Star? Or are we stretching the truth a bit and was Gilbert being covered by Dominique Wilkins?

All kidding aside, this is exceptionally good news for Wizards fans. Further, if Leonsis is willing to extol Arenas' values on his blog, it would seem to point towards a further healing of relations between Arenas and the organization. A fully fit Gilbert Arenas would means a lot to an organization whose stock has steadily been rising in NBA circles since the acquisition of John Wall.
