Default Arenas has 3rd knee surgery, out until December!

Uh-oh! Looks like Gilbert did a great job talking Washington into signing him to a 6-year, $111 million contract, but they forgot the fact that he just sat out the last season with surgery on his knee, and he has not played in an NBA game in about a year. They forgot to vet him!


I hope nobody is surprised by this!

My favourite comment of the article is from Ernie Grunfeld, the Wizards' team president: "I don't know if it is a setback."

If Gilbert being out until December (at the absolute earliest) isn't a setback, then why the hell did he get a big contract in the first place. GM's need to be saved from themselves.
