08:10 AM ET 09.07 | As it turns out, John Wall and Gilbert Arenas were a poor match, but not in the ways some might have expected. How Wall would co-exist with Arenas was an immediate concern. And from the time training camp started until Arenas was dealt to the Orlando Magic on Dec. 18, Wall said he and Arenas had just one problem -- playing together. "Everybody expected us not to get along, to bump heads," said Wall, who still communicates with Arenas. "When we were playing together, we really got along good. But it just couldn't work with us two, and then you got Nick Young. That's why it didn't work. But other than that, he was cool people on and off the court. When Gil got traded, it really helped me to get open."

I'm a Wizards fan, but God I hate John Wall.

But I just love Gilbert. At least when he can make bail.

Arerna's co-conspirator Crittenton (sp?) is a murder suspect now. Wall must be thanking his stars that Arenas was moved.

Someone needs to tell mr wall that the team just isnt very good

Agreed...he could use a reality check. With or without Agent Zero this team will be terrible.

Gilbert is a great scorer, could be a better if he appled gimself,but is a prime example of what happens to a player that loses that chip on his shouder after the big payday.
