3. Gilbert Arenas
Arenas is one of the most foolish athletes in the history of humanity. First of all, there was the time that he and Javaris Crittenton pulled guns on each other in the locker room. But that’s not even why he’s on this list. No, we’re talking about another incident that’s almost laughably foolish. In short, if you’re going to carry illegal items in your truck, you should have the brains to drive slowly so as not to attract attention.
However, let’s give him some credit because he was a professional athlete, not a professional criminal. In 2013, police pulled him over for speeding in L.A. But then they proceeded to uncover over 100 pounds of fireworks in his truck. The only thing that could have made this better is if one exploded and the whole truck lit up in different color flames. You almost have to admire his hustle.
