Recently, the Orlando Magic handed the Los Angeles Lakers one of their worst losses of the season on national television. Gilbert Arenas somewhat blended in with the yellow throwback jerseys of the Lakers by rocking this Air Jordan 11 Low IE White/Varsity Maize-Azure. It was the second Air Jordan 11 Low IE of the season for him.

Opponent: Portland Trail Blazers

The “Ice Blue” Air Jordan 10 was one of the first re-releases of MJ’s 10th signature sneaker back in the summer of 2005. Sadly, Arenas went ‘ice cold’ in this game against the Trail Blazers. He shot 5-15 from the field, charted five turnovers and had six fouls. It’s okay, Arenas. You won us over with the sneaker selection.

  1. haters everywhere we go. Gil hasn’t played a full stretch of 82 game basketball in about 5 years. It takes time to get into a rhythm, especially with a brand new team. The squad is currently 4th in the East and picking up steam. Yall boys sound like females. Just mad cuz he could use your grails as toilet tissue

    • Your whole post is off base and contradictory…You’re right he hasn’t played a full season in 4 years, however, he has a max contract and that doesn’t bother you as a fan? To me that equals being overpaid. The team is 4th place in a PATHETIC CONFERNCE, Celts/Heat a given Magic were in the Finals a few years back and now 4th? Lakers are in 4th too, but guarantee they in the finals thanks to stern. The 4th place has NOTHING to do with Gilbert, as a matter of fact, I believe their record is worse with him there. If dudes sound like females? You just sound ignorant.

  2. idk theres just some shoes that i think he wore just 2 b a dick and have all the attention on him cause cmon D&G shoes… be serious man? !!

  3. Horrible TITLE NK….What makes him a hero? because of his shoe collection? Because he is barely a shell of his former self on the court. Overpaid idiot.

  4. every1 and dey momma would have all dem shoes wit the money he makes.. problem is he’s garbage! how can he be a hero cuz of his shoe collection?? if so, then that means my cousin is GOD!

    he would never get signed by jordan are you stupid?! not hating just being honest.

  5. gilbert is a hero…the KOC hero…shit was almost always wackness until he showed up. Now i see alot more heat in the NBA.
