Gilbert Arenas once put dog poop in Andray Blatche’s sneaker
Now that Gilbert Arenas is a third-string guard who plays for the Grizzlies, he’s probably not having as much fun as he used to. He was already heading downhill in Washington before the gun incident, but that became the final straw for his career with the Wizards. However, when Arenas was one of the highest-paid players in the NBA, he was known as a prankster. That could be why Andray Blatche once falsely accused him of cutting up his suit.
In an interview with the USA Today, Arenas told a story about Blatche once throwing all of his clothes in the jacuzzi because he thought Gilbert cut up his suit. Arenas insists he was not the culprit, but he was forced to get back at Blatche for throwing his clothes in the hot tub. He decided to take aim at Blatche’s sneakers
“It was just dog doo-doo in it,” Arenas recalled. “It was really dog doo-doo. … I took his sole out, threw it under there, put the sole back on and threw the baby powder on there so he couldn’t smell it.”
Advantage: Arenas. Based on the way he went about the prank, this sounds like a man who has pulled the dog s*** in the sneaker prank before. Under the sole and baby powder to mask the smell? That kind of expertise doesn’t just come to you one morning when you wake up. Either Gilbert did a lot of Google research ahead of time, or Andre wasn’t the first person to feel the squish at the hands of Agent Zero.
