Gilbert Arenas, a former Washington Wizards star guard, retired almost 11 years ago from the NBA. Yet, there appear to be signs of him finding another purpose in spying on fellow ballers specifically, those who have anything to do with the legendary centers and unusual hoop situations. As fate would have it, when Ross recently hit the courts with Lil’ Wayne by his side, hooping it up in his own private jet hangar, Arenas couldn’t help but take a playful jab tweeting about Ross’ skills.
