Wizards Gilbert Arenas gets into argument with fan on IG post comparing him to Stephen Curry
He may be an afterthought nowadays, but there was a time when Gilbert Arenas used to light up the scoreboard with a crazy amount of confidence and skill. A gifted scorer inside and out, he was once one of the best shot makers in the early 2000s.
Moreover, the three-time All-star had an average of 20.7 points, 3.9 rebounds, 5.3 assists, and 1.6 steals for his 12-year career. Unfortunately, his fall from grace was quicker that his rise in the league, due to injuries as well as bad on and off-court decisions.
Continuing his run on possible bad off-court decisions, Gilbert Arenas got into a Twitter dispute.
By way of Tomer Azarly’s tweet, “Gilbert Arenas got into a bit of an argument on @ClutchPointsApp‘s IG post comparing him and Stephen Curry’s best years in the NBA.”

A Twitter user by the name of legitreese dropped a comment stating that Curry’s last four seasons were better than Arenas’ career. Arenas’ pride was wounded on the comparison, and there are compelling points he brought up regarding the matter.
At 25-years-old, Stephen Curry had his first All-star appearance while Arenas had his third All-star nod with All-NBAs under his belt.
In their best seasons, Arenas’ 2005-06 had averages of 29.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, 6.1 assists per game, while Curry’s 2015-16 had 30.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, 6.7 assists, and 2.1 steals.
The matter of who is better than who will be always up for discussion. However, if scoring is concerned, without a doubt these are two of the best in the NBA.
