The Hibachi Show - Shaq on the Grill

Published by Yoshi on 15th March - 20:14 (CET)
Gilbert Arenas, Agent Zero, Hibachi. The man has many names and even more talents. While Arenas, the player, was a true superstar averaging nearly 30 PPG in his prime and as clutch as they come, many of us miss his personality even more than his game. While using the alias Agent Zero, Arenas had a blog on NBA.com (which is still there by the way) and provided a unique combination of humor, valuable insights and that Kenny Powers superstar hubris to give fans a fantastic peek into the reality of an NBA baller.

Then some... stuff.. happened and Arenas kind of fell off the grid for a while, but through Instagram under @no.chill.gil, Arenas is in his retirement still providing rants ranging from completely outrageous and offensive to honest and real on current NBA topics and life in general. With no editor his horrendous typing skills and not-so-PR-friendly views shine through, but nevertheless the entertainment value is through the roof, why we at FlagrantFlop now introduce The Hibachi Show - the occasional look at what's going on with our favorite post-NBA rant provider!

This time around, Gil is giving Shaquille O'Neal the business in response to comments made by Shaq on how Kevin Durant should shut up until he has a ring. The Big Telecaster made these remarks after KD defended JaVale McGee over Shaq's constant bullying on TV and Twitter and said that "Shaqtin' A Fool" could have been filled with his mistakes as well.

Agent Zero grills Shaq's no-ring-reasoning by pointing out how much more goes into winning a championship other than the individual star of that team, providing arguments which us LeBron fans can recite in our sleep after the first Cleveland years. In the minds of a lot of people a player's value is far too tied to championships or the lack thereof, why they basically kill any argument regarding a player's value if he doesn't have a ring. I'm looking at you, Kobe fans!

You can read the full rant below for yourself, but in my opinion Arenas nails this one pretty well as Shaq continues to make an ass out of himself on TNT BullyTime.

What do you think? Is Shaq right about rings before respect or is Agent Zero dropping some truth? Comment below, and look out for upcoming episodes of The Hibachi Show!
