Evidently, Gilbert Arenas feels he needs to work on his flopping game.
Accoring to Soccer Insider, Gilbert Arenas has expressed interest in training with D.C. United of the MLS (that soccer league in the US that you'll hear more about once David Beckham joins the LA Galaxy in July).
Now prepare for Agent Zero, Gilbert Arenas, who has expressed interest in offseason workouts with United at RFK.
Here is United's official take on things from vice prez of communications Doug "Blacksburg Soccer Rules" Hicks:
"The Wizards strength and conditioning coach has visited to observe some of the work we do to increase foot speed and quickness, among other things. Gilbert is said to be interested in alternative training methods to help elevate his game. While no date is set, it is our understanding that he hopes to train with us in the near future on a day that we work extensively on fitness and mobility drills."
Actually, I always felt all the years of youth soccer helped my basketball footwork. Soccer does use a lot of change of pace change of direction moves that are needed in hoops. Plus, maybe the coach will share some new flopping techniques.
Also, given that both David Beckham and Gilbert Arenas are Adidas guys, how soon before we see a "Fútbol vs. Basketball" commercial, like the new Fútbol vs. Football ones?
