Gilbert Arenas reveals the story of Kobe Bryant kicking everyone out of their own house for a security check

Gilbert Arenas recently appeared for an interview on VladTV. During the interview, he was asked about some of the Kobe stories. To this, Arenas revealed an incident at Caron Butler’s house, when Kobe and his security team kicked everyone out of the house to do a security check.

“I got third-party stories. Like Caron was telling me once about his birthday. He did a party at his house in Milwaukee and he said he invited Kobe. Says my house got my family, my friends, our teammates and they said Kobe comes,” Gilbert Arenas said.

“He has security, tells everyone ‘hey everyone! Out of the house’. Kicked everyone out of their own house and then he had a security check and make sure everything was all right. And then let everybody back here. He (Caron) said I’m sitting outside looking like ‘yo bro, this is my house bro’. He said that’s what he could. Said you just gotta deal with it, okay.”

Gilbert and Kobe never played alongside each other in their career. But they had a lot of respect for each other. In fact, the two were also involved in a trash-talking incident, but Arenas has always had respect for Kobe.
