There’s been some speculation about the condition of Gilbert Arenas’ knees, but according to SLAM and Nick Young, he had a similar procedure to which Kobe had in the off-season in Germany:

‘He’s been working out. He said he got the — I don’t know if I’m supposed to say this — but he got that Kobe treatment on his knees.

Yea, yea… you could say it’s the Kobe System, but he said it feels great, his knees feel great, and he’s been working out. When I seen him last time, he looked like he was in shape. He lost a lot of weight.’ When did you last see him? ‘When we went to Orlando the last time we played [the Wizards played the Magic on Orlando on January 4], so he looked like he was in good shape.’ The Los Angeles Lakers are reportedly interested in Arenas, have you talked to him about playing for both of you guys’ hometown team? ‘Oh yea, oh yea … most definitely. That’s a big thing for him. That’d be real big for the Lakers to add him to their team because they need a guard.

If this is true about Gilbert’s knees, it will be interesting to see if he is rejuvenated like Kobe and if the Lakers will actually wind up signing him.
