Gilbert Arenas spent more than seven seasons with the Wizards and even though the end wasn't very positive, he took the time to thank the fans for their support.
Arenas played his first game with the Magic on Monday night, but sent a message to Chris Miller of Comcast SportsNet to rely to Washington's fans.
The statement read as follows:
"I know it didn't end like I would have liked. I had a great time playing in Washington -- they made me feel like a rock star while I was here. I wish I could have took them further than the second round.
"I wanna thank Mr. and Mrs. Pollin, Ernie, Eddie, every teammate I went to war with on that basketball court. Thanks [sic] you for believing in me.
"I wanna thank Mr. Leonsis for giving me a chance to regain some basketball respect back in my career, and I hope nothing but the best from him and the Wizards.
"Last but not least I want to thank the great fans of Washington. It was an honor playing for you guys for 8 years.
"I hope when it's all said and done. I entertained you when you entered those doors at the MCI/Verizon Center and can forgive me as a man for the mistakes I've made."
