It didn't take long for Gilbert Arenas to earn headlines in his return to the Wizards. Arenas begged out of playing in a preseason game because of injury, only to then announce to reporters that the supposed injury was a ploy to get teammate Nick Young more minutes.
As coaching moves go, it worked out pretty well. Young scored 24 points in his quest for regular-season minutes and the Wizards gave the fans in the Verizon Center a win against the Hawks. But the Wizards apparently weren't amused, fining Arenas an undisclosed amount. Arenas blamed the media for making a big deal of the story, but was this the latest installment of Arenas causing problems or a gesture of selflessness we should embrace?
