Gil's Mil Ill Will

New, comments

Found this nugget buried a few hundred words down in Gilbert Arenas' latest blog post on NBA.com:

Richard Jefferson going to Milwaukee …. HAHAHA! Oh man, now that is funny. When I heard that, I started laughing. Oh man, did I start laughing. You know why? Because every player hates Milwaukee. Nobody wants to live in Milwaukee. I’m sorry, Milwaukee, to come down hard on you, but no one in the NBA wants to play in Milwaukee. From him going from New Jersey, actually from New York (because he lives in New York), from New York to Milwaukee is like going … let’s just say it’s not going to sit well with you. That was a funny one when I heard that one. I know Yi is happy though.

This stings even more considering the context of the story: Arenas wildly praises about half (exaggeration added for emphasis) the cities on the planet before the Milwaukee diss. Gil gets a pass on this one because like Jason Terry and Damon Stoudamire, he's an Arizona guard I've always enjoyed watching. Not sure if the rest of Bucks Nation will agree when the Wiz visit the BC.

And in the $111 million range, there might be some lakefront property attractive even to Gilbert.
