After his gun incident, Gilbert Arenas had to stay in a halfway house for a month. Now a month has gone by and the Wizards' guard has been released out of there.
Arenas arrived in his Washington home in his Mercedes Benz at about 8:30 in the morning. What was a bit humorous about this is that Arenas probably forget the code to enter his house.
Trying to punch the numbers on the keypad, it failed on numerous attempts. Arenas then yelled and a woman replied with the number.
Arenas was asked about his time in the halfway house, but didn't reply. He said he nothing to say. I can understand why. We should all. It's something you really don't want to talk about to the media right when you get out of it.
Arenas was sentenced to a month in a halfway house, but will also have to serve time on probation for two years. He also has to cover up the $5K fine and his 400 hours of community service. But sadly for him, it can't be performed at basketball clinics.
On April 9th, Arenas had to serve 48 hours in jail and then the halfway house.
But now Gilbert can put this stuff behind him. He is now free to do his basketball career again. Like what happened to Michael Vick, Arenas can act like his career is starting all over again.
The Wizards have said they are planning to keep him. He's 28 and has a lot left to play. Though he hasn't completed a full/good quality season since the 2006-07 season, he looks to change everything up for this year.
Arenas has four years remaining on his mega contract with a six-year $111M contract.
"I'm glad it's over with," ex-teammate Antwan Jamison said. "I think this is the most important part. He can get to just playing basketball. It's unfortunate the way things happened. We always envisioned, what I'm going through, doing it together."
I wish all the best to Gilbert and hope things turn out alright.
