Gilbert Arenas Used Michael Jordan’s Gear He Left Behind In His Wizards Locker: “MJ’s Orthotics, I Put In My Shoes.”

 

After Michael Jordan’s second retirement in 2003 which concluded his long successful career, a young and upcoming point guard in Gilbert Arenas, who signed with the Washington Wizards in that same summer, was the lucky one who took over Jordan’s former Wizards locker.

 

During a conversation with ‘Fubo Sports’, Arenas now revealed that Michael Jordan left some of his gear in his old locker that he took over. One of which was his orthotics inserts that Arenas admittedly used during his NBA career.

 

“When his [Michael Jordan’s] time was up, you know the owner and MJ didn’t agree to the terms. MJ left, which means he left all his stuff,” Arenas mentioned.

“So when I came that summer and I signed with the Wizards, you know I picked my locker it was MJ’s Locker. When I opened it you know you got all MJ’s stuff so I’m sitting here like is this MJ, MJ?… So I have his undershorts, all his stuff — his orthotics, I actually played in his orthotics in my career. Yeah, so his orthotics, MJ’s orthotics, I put in my shoes,” Arenas said.

 

While comfort was sort of a question, Arenas didn’t mind at all. In fact, the former Wizards star implied that he benefited from wearing Jordan’s orthotics, saying that Jordan’s energy was within him.

 

“Yeah because he was I think he was a 14, and it was like a 14 on one side and like 13 and a half so he just trimmed it you know the trim to 14 for 13. And yeah, it was MJ so I had the power of energy in me.”
