By Mike Wise Oct. 13 (Washington Post) -- "I screwed up again." - Gilbert Arenas, after admitting he lied to his coach. Succinct. Pointed. Really, of all the epitaphs I've ever considered, "I screwed up again" pretty much says it all. What, you wanted him to be the morose, bearded, sullen guy who showed up at media day like Joaquin Phoenix once showed up on David Letterman? How depressing. You honestly thought the man was going to go an entire season being a model employee? You believed Mr. Mischief would not put his foot in his mouth about something before April? Ha. He couldn't even get out of the pre-season without incurring people's wrath, without being judged and told to leave Washington for a fresh start. Look, I'm not here to endorse Arenas lying to Flip Saunders about an injury so his teammate, Nick Young, could play in a meaningless exhibition game Tuesday night.
