Arenas Denies Report, Threatens To Sue New York Post

Just over an hour ago, Gilbert Arenas tweeted the following, "i wake up this morning and seen i was the new JOHN WAYNE..lmao media is too funny." Now, we have a more official denial, as the Washington Post's Wizards beat writer, Michael Lee, reports that Arenas said, "I saw the story. Very compelling stuff. Some real O.K. corral stuff," in reference to the New York Post article, and added, "That's not the real story."

Lee also reports that Arenas is considering a lawsuit against the New York Post. Again, investigations are ongoing and details are still emerging, but it seems that between Yahoo's initial report, the New York Post account, and now Arenas' denials, it could take a while before we actually find out the truth. In the interim, more "Bookie Ball" please.
