Gilbert Jay Arenas, Jr. (/əˈriːnɨs/; born January 6, 1982) is an American professional basketball player who has most recently played for the Memphis Grizzlies of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He plays as a point guard and shooting guard. Arenas attended Grant High School in Valley Glen, California, and accepted a scholarship offer to the University of Arizona late in his junior year. He entered the 2001 NBA Draft and was selected in the second round (30th pick) by the Golden State Warriors. Arenas is a three-time NBA All-Star, three-time member of the All-NBA Teams, and was voted the NBA Most Improved Player in the 2002–03 season.

Both names quickly became fan favorites in the Washington area during his time there. Arenas was suspended for most of the 2009–10 season because of handgun violations stemming from an episode on December 24, 2009, and for subsequent actions that appeared to make light of this episode. In late 2010, Arenas was traded from
