Ankle Injury Not Enough To Prevent Gilbert Arenas From Inventing Sprints

If you're wondering what really is going on with Gilbert Arenas' latest injury, join the club. Maybe he's really suffering from a sore ankle. Maybe he's pouting because he doesn't like something. Maybe he really wants to give Al Thornton a chance to play. Maybe he's on his way to another team. Who knows anymore.

We do know this, though: Arenas is kind of sort of helping out the team, in some small, tangible way. After practice today, Andray Blatche told reporters that he and Arenas have created a special sprint that every player must do if they make any sort of negative gesture about a certain play. The idea is to prepare the team for the technical foul crackdown occurring league-wide. Via Joseph White of the AP:

↵↵Blatche said he & Arenas made a rule: "You do any kind of hand gestures then you have to do a 17." What's a 17, you ask? It's 17 sprints from sideline to sideline in under a minute ... Can't do the 17 in a minute? You have to do it again.

See, look. Arenas really is a good teammate.
