Arenas says he's 'retired' as a blogger 2009-03-25
WASHINGTON (AP) - Gilbert Arenas apparently is ready to return to the court. He swears he is done, however, with his computer.

Yes, one of the best-known and most-quoted examples of a star professional athlete conveying his thoughts to the world via his blog is hanging up his keyboard. The Washington Wizards point guard said so himself Wednesday when asked whether he plans to resume writing now that he's ready to get back to balling.

"I retired," Arenas said in the home locker room before Washington's game against Charlotte. "No more blogging for me."

Really?

Why not?

"It's just like the double-(edged) sword thing: Eventually your words is going to kill you," Arenas said with a smile.

Asked to explain his thoughts further, Arenas smiled.

What's Hot:

  • Goodman: 'Nova can't be overlooked
  • Hill: Mizzou too fast for Memphis
  • Beatdown: Duke rocked by 'Nova
  • Pitt escapes vs. Xavier in thriller
  • Tiger two back after Bay Hill opener

"I started looking at it as, before, it was fun, and everybody has fun reading it. And then it's like everything I said, everybody started using it as firepower, instead of saying it's just entertainment. You know, people started using it, trying to take bits and pieces instead of enjoying the blog," the three-time All-Star said. "So once I started seeing that, I just started visualizing, eventually, this is going to be the double-(edged) sword thing. It made me and it's going to kill me, so I might as well stop."

He hasn't updated his blog since November, and has threatened in the past to stop blogging — only to pick it up again.

He has missed all of this season so far after having his third knee operation in 18 months. But Arenas started practicing with his teammates last month and has targeted Saturday's game against the visiting Detroit Pistons for his return.

"The plan is still holding," Wizards interim coach Ed Tapscott said Wednesday. "T-minus-48 or something. So we're still on schedule for launch, I guess."
