Hibachi Wants to Come Play

Team USA Plans
You know what, I’m still debating it. Since my leg is healthier than I thought it would be at this time, I might just go out there. I might call Jerry Colangelo and see if I can just go out there and train with them. Or if not that, I’ll just stay and work on my health.

I say no chance in hell they should let him in a USA Jersey. I was fine with him being upset about being left off the team. Hell, I liked his passion and thought he should have been out there but not after his antics afterwards. He doesn't want to play for the USA because its represents his country he wants to do it because he wants people to think he is the best. He all but proved it by his personal assault on all the US coaches. Sorry Gil but if it was up to me (and it isn't) you would be staying home.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

I believe Gilbert's shooting would have won us the gold last year.

are you serious?? He shoots horrible... he just chucks a lot of shots to get points. He's shooting 41.8%...35% 3pts that's not efficient.

I say no to Gilbert.

I don't think the team needs him. He usualy sucks in all-star games and when he's not hot he doesn't stop shooting. Gilbert Arenas = Michael Redd, don't need 'em both, don't really need another chucker with no d.

I'll gladly be Hollinger if I proved you wrong. Obviously he doesn't shoot efficiently, so no he wouldn't have helped. I provided facts, yet you insult me.

Everyone is agreeing with me... Gil doesn't shoot efficiently, when he's hot, it's all good, but when he isn't he just chucks up shots. USA doesn't need him.

I haven't insulted you at all. It was more like a poke on facebook.

Gilbert's not an efficient player? Then explain to me Washington's playoff appearances the last couple of years. Also, explain to me how he efficiently scored 60 points against our team. In addition, explain how he efficiently averages close to 30 ppg throughout the season. Once again, Gil's a shooting guard - one of the most clutch players in the league. He's supposed to shoot - and he's quite good at it.

I said he isn't an efficient scorer not player. He scored 60 points... so what? That's one game... he has great games, bad games... he's not consistent. His 41% tells me that. If you average 30 ppg on 46-50% shooting it means he's doing it the right way. If you average near 30 ppg shooting 41% it means he's chucking up shots. Anyone can score 30 ppg... all you have to do is keep chucking shots... but that's not being efficient and it's hindering your teams performance.

damn, so much hate on Gil.
I'd love to see him play and be a part of National team. His charisma would bring joy of playing in other players :man11:

Some of the things these clueless fans say apply to Kobe also.

Gilbert would be the best player for USA after Melo and Kobe.

The guy can flat out shoot.

Gotta have role players, too many stars and there aren't enough basketballs. Gil is a chucker and Miller is a shooter. Everything Gil does is about Gil, don't need him on the team.

Exactly Weezy.

It isn't that Gil isn't good enough to be on the team it is that the Team doesn't need Gil or his "all about me" attitude
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Of course the team needs role players, but people here are basically saying Gilbert shouldn't even be on the team.

He can backup Kobe ANY time he wants to.
