Gilbert Arenas Has Different Take on Who the Greatest of All Time is

When you think about the all-time greats, you consider championships, stats and records in ultimately arriving at your opinion.

But just last week, we got a new kind of GOAT when the ‘Money Man’ Gilbert Arenas called himself the “real GOAT” in an interview. Why? Uh, because he made $62 million only playing 17 games. MJ, Kobe, and LeBron can’t even come close to that.

“It was funny to me when the media was laughing at me cause I got amnestied,” he said, addressing his 2011 exit from the Orlando Magic. “I’m like, do you know they’re gonna cut me and give me all my money? So, therefore, I’m gonna get all my money without actually doing anything. And you’re laughing at me why?”

Arenas was traded from Washington to Orlando in 2010, and after the 2011 lockout, the Magic decided to waive him as the first casualty of the new amnesty clause. He went on to play for the Memphis Grizzlies in the 2011/12 season, before ultimately calling it quits.

In conclusion, Arenas added, “62 million to sit on the couch? Sounds amazing to me.”

He had a pretty solid career, not spectacular, but if we are measuring money made per effort exerted, he is right at the top of the list.
