Three-time All-Star Gilbert Arenas left the NBA in 2012, but that doesn’t mean he lost his shot.
The former Washington Wizards star was asked to leave the Orange County Fair after he nearly bankrupted the basketball tent of all its prizes.
“We just got banned from all the basketball hoops at #orangecountyfair…every one screamed #theRimsarebent I screamed #hibachi …#ArenasFamily #CountyFairRockstars”
I always thought the “basketball rims” at those bullshit carnival games were oval-shaped and that’s why my perfect shot never drained like it does on a regular court (Editor’s note: It doesn’t), but Arenas has clearly found a way to sink shots with his nice NBA-caliber stroke. I can only imagine how easy it was for him, or how nervous the stoner kid in the booth was after handing over six months worth of prize inventory in a matter of minutes.
Apparently, Arenas hit the daily maximum prize limit of 15 giant stuffed animals — which is a nonsense rule.
OC Fair tells @ABC7JulieSone that Gilbert Arenas hit the daily max prize limit of 15 on the basketball games, can come back another day.

If you go to the fair, there shouldn’t be “prize limits.” Maybe that flies in another country, but not the United States. This is a nation built on hard work, and limiting our ability to win giant, human-size Minions is violating a God-given right and disrespecting what this country is all about..
