Kyle Kuzma describes prime Gilbert Arenas as ‘S.A.V.A.G.E.’
From 2003-2010, Gilbert Arenas was one of the best scorers in the NBA, and Los Angeles Lakers second-year small forward Kyle Kuzma wants to remind everyone of that.
Arenas averaged 25.0 points per game in 357 career games with the Washington Wizards. He made the All-Star team three times and was a walking bucket. There wasn’t anything you could do to stop him. The point guard had unlimited range, a lethal crossover and a knack for hitting clutch shots.
Like many kids back in the day, Kyle Kuzma was a big fan of Agent Zero.

In 552 NBA games, Gilbert Arenas averaged 20.7 points, 3.9 rebounds and 5.3 assists while shooting 42.1 percent from the field, 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 80.3 percent from the free-throw line. He scored 60 points during 2006-07 season with the Wizards against the Lakers. That was the game where Arenas and Kobe Bryant had an epic duel. Kobe had 45 points, but the Wizards won by a final score of 147-141.
Gilbert Arenas’ NBA career ended on a bad note. He was involved in the well-publicized gun incident in the Wizards’ locker room with Javaris Crittenton during the 2009 season. Arenas played with the Orlando Magic and Memphis Grizzlies before his playing career ended in the 2012 season.
