I just wanted to get some opinions on Arenas becoming the starting PG. Personally, I am very very biased when it comes to this topic. I love Arenas. (Hence the Avatar :D ) I watched every game he played his two years at Arizona, and read nearly every article that the Arizona Daily Star put out about him and the rest of the Wildcats.
By the way, I agree with everyone who says Arenas isnt a PG, but he will be one, and a good one. Remember these things when assesing him:

1. Gil is a young guy. Gilbert came into the league as a 19 year old. He is still only 20. He will have many years ahead of him to progress and develop.

2. He comes from the U of Arizona, which is widely known as a breeding ground for guards. Granted he only spent 2 years in college, but the pro experience he's getting now is very close to as valuable.

3. Last year, he spent most of his time on the bench. However, when Hughes struggled earlier last season, Arenas was called on, and he exploded. He earned co-rookie of the month honors (shared it with Zebraca of Detroit). Given the right amount of game experience, he WILL put up numbers.

Given time and the support needed, Arenas could become an elite PG in the league. However, NBA teams are not known for their patience

IMO

I've seen this cat play in arizona.. loved his game there and love his game with the W's..

REMEMBER this cat has only played basically half a season... give him a full season with the fullsupport and help that he needs to succeed before you start judging him
