Default Arenas on Moon and the Dunk Competition

Who knows, Gilbert could be right but I hope Moon surprises everyone including us.

Some people can jump high, some people are more acrobatic and know how to use their body.

Eddie Robinson was a one-dimensional player and seemed like kind of a doorknob. I think Jamario will surprise some people, though I frankly don't favour any particular dunker to win it this time around; we'll just have to wait and see.

Eddie Robinson got bought out by the Bulls about five years ago and that's the last I've ever heard of him.

Does he not know that Moon used to be on the Harlem Globetrotters? That's all those cats do - entertain. Jamario is going to surprise a lot of people.

Gilbert Arenas is a big-head case....emphasis on the big and the head.

Wasn't there a chucker who played for Wizards few years ago that was named Gilbert something? I heard he retired...

Arenas should stay healthy for more than a month before he shoots his mouth off. What does he know about dunking anyway? With his knees can he even touch the mesh anymore?

Haha, when he says something nice about the Raps it's "Gilbert's the man, he's hilarious", but when he says something bad hes a bigmouth chucker, haha. Gilbert could very well be right, have any of you seen Jamario do any fancy dunks yet? No.

Gilbert's blog is very interesting and probably the best in the world of basketball. The stuff he does in between games is like any average Joe, how can you not like the guy when he plays online poker at halftimes, halo til 5 in the morning with fans, has paintball matches in his backyard at night etc. Dude is like any one of us living the dream, he hasnt become a hothead/bighead once he got to the bigtime. Gilbert's the man.

No he is not! How many games have we seen Moon play? exactly not a lot, he cant really showcase flashy dunks because he is not that type of person plus it is very risky when your only getting limited amount of touches and fighting to keep your starting spot.

I agree that he is like one of us but he really needs to shut the fuck up sometimes. Like one of the posters here said, Moon use to be in the Harlem Globetrotters...'nuff said.

Which is exactly why Gilbert is speculating like many probably have saying 'who the fuck is Jamario Moon', and then they look at his dunks on nba.com and say the same thing Gilbert said. It's a legit opinion man, who knows if Moon has more creativity than Hakim Warrick did or if theyre just power dunkers. We shall see come mid February

Thrill, why are you in love with this Gilbert guy?

Since he retired he didn't say one nice thing about anybody...

Yes it is a legit opinion, but it's also unfair to speculate and judge Moon just because he has not seen him that much. Especially when he comes out and says it to the media, it does not look good on his character.
