09:34 AM ET 12.14 | Bleacher Report caught up with Gilbert Arenas for an interview. The former Wizards franchise guard thinks he would be a good fit for NBA teams struggling with guard play: "I know the Knicks -- I've watched them. They need a lot of help; they need scoring. "Melo [Carmelo Anthony] needs an outlet. Someone who can just put the ball in the basket and take the pressure off him. I [also] called Jason Kidd before the season and said 'Listen, I feel that I can be better than some of the players you're going to have.' But they were already stacked to the brim.

I guess the Lakers, with Steve Nash out. I think I could've made that squad, because that's who I was working out with before training camp started. I was playing pretty well there. But they had 15 players, so ..."

Do those teams also need guns in their locker rooms? Gilbert can help with that too.

Looked his age up. Surprised to see he's still just 31, expected him to be a little older.

Depending on how good gilbert was playing, I think he could really be a good fit for the Nets or Knicks. Would love to see him play in the lg again

I won't be surprise if he does get picked up. All 4 teams need a PG ASAP!

Another guy that probably needs the cash. He was a great player but injuries took their toll.

No doubt the Laker fans were "optimistic" with the .500 start and thought incorrectly that when the black garter snake returned, the Lakers would be contenders. They'll win 30.

I said 25 once and 30 a number of times. It'll be in that range. It's still the lottery for the Lakers and playoff for the Cavs.
