Gilbert Arenas spending his money the MC Hammer way

It's necessary to point out, before we start pointing fingers and laughing, that the court battle between Gilbert Arenas(notes) and his former girlfriend is nothing to cackle over. There are children in the middle, and Gilbert's ex is trying to wrangle a settlement that is in the best interests of those children.

That said, wow. That's a lot of money you've spent, there, Gilbert Arenas. And even in the middle of a six-year, $111 million contract (that followed a six-year, nearly $64 million contract), there's absolutely no way Gilbert Arenas can keep up this lifestyle for much longer.

What lifestyle? According to court records obtained by the Washington Post, this lifestyle:

There's a lot about how Arenas spent his money, based on her understanding of the household finances: "he states he makes 1.5 million per month," read the notes. Arenas lavished plenty on their Great Falls home, dropping $100,000 on landscaping, $5,000 a month for housekeepers, $675 "per car" washing, and $1 million for his backyard pool and grotto. His sharks are expensive: $5,000 a month to feed them and $1,500 for a keeper to drive from Columbus to take care of them.

He was extravagant when it came to toys for the children -- ages 5, 4 and 2 -- buying a $60,000 train set and an $8,000 toy Mercedes-Benz electric car, and dropping between $30,000 and $40,000 during a shopping spree at FAO Schwartz. (Arenas also told this story on the blog, but didn't divulge the amount of money spent.)

"His sharks are expensive." Whoa, boy.

There is some debate as to whether or not Arenas, currently shooting under 40 percent from the field in Orlando while playing on a surgically reconstructed left knee, will even be able to play beyond his current contract, which expires in 2014. So this is just about it for him, and it's not a stretch to say that Arenas (though that contract is easily the league's worst) will be traded a few more times before the deal is done.

So please, Gilbert, let's refrain from building a shark-filled grotto in Orlando. And maybe look into goldfish futures, back in the District of Columbia.

Also, do right by the woman who is raising your kids. And say "hi" to the sharks for me.

Although the train set is quite steep (massive understatement)

I'd say the $675 he spends on car washes PER CAR is beyond ridiculous.

Who even has the nuts to say "Yea I charge 675 each playa"
And this n*gga was dumb enough to say yea

You have to understand that when you make 111 million that $8000 is like $ to the rest of us. Yes he should control his spending and invest in businesses that will help him maintain that lifestyle but it's his life. As far as the woman, when you have kids with a woman and you make more than her you can forget about asking her to take care of herself. Whatever money is decided for child support she will be using some of that on herself too. If you think you are going to be something, use a condom and really try to know the person - how about that. She can be a wh0ore all day buit he choose her! What do you say about that?

If Gil never f**ked up his knee, he would have probably walked away as one of the top 5 highest paid athletes ever in the NBA..

Simply because he was chosen in the second round, and the bird rights rule wasnt implemented..

2 year rookie contract with Golden state

Then gets a 5 year 60mil deal with the Wizards

Followed by another 111mil 6 year extention..

He probably could have gotten another 4 year 55mil deal if he didn't get injured.. Thats over 200mil in his NBA career.. Damn..

What the f**k do you do with a shark? Do you feed them squirrels that you find in your neighborhood or something? Mothaf**ka could be buying land and getting that s**t back to him.

Yes, he should take care of kids, but not the mother of his kids. First of all, they are not even MARRIED. He don't owe her a** nothing. Its called child support, not support the mother of your kids support. Point is: She need to get off her a** and get a J.O.B. She didn't hit game winners, practice endless hours in the gym honing her craft (unless you wanna count latching on to a man who had a future in front of him), shoot hundreds of thousands of jumpers, or play in any playoff games. Woman fought throughout the 60's for woman lib, take advantage of it BEYOUCH!
