Arenas Named Best-Paid Reserve In Sports

Though it’s almost hard to imagine now, Gilbert Arenas was once a $100-million man, and he’s still counting that money. Arenas has started just two games over the past two seasons, averaging 19 minutes and seven points a game off the bench. All while pulling in about $37 million, including $19.3 million this season.

At age 30, Arenas could still reestablish himself as a star. But for the time being, his career arc reads like a VH1 musician’s biography. … But with that contract, he’s the best-paid bench warmer out there. Many saw him as the owners’ poster boy during last year’s NBA lockout. Arenas beats out Cleveland Indians’ designated hitter Travis Hafner.
