If you're not following Gilbert Arenas on Twitter, you are doing yourself a pretty big disservice. It seems like he comes out with a legitimately newsworthy fun fact every other day at this point. Last night Arenas went on a little rant about how exactly the story about him with the gun in the locker room came to light. He seems to think that it was the organization that leaked the story, to give themselves a reason to get rid of him.

You can never tell if Arenas is being serious on Twitter, and the fact that he finishes the whole thing with a "lmaoooo" is not a good sign. But I wouldn't be surprised if this is truly what he believes, or if this was in fact the case. But Arenas makes perhaps his best, and possibly his only salient point right in the middle. He gave them he tool to take him down. So they might have pulled the trigger on releasing the story, but Arenas' actions are what made it a story worth releasing.
