Exclusive: Gilbert Arenas Not Training With The Clippers, Plans On Going Back To China

Published

on

HipHollywood has exclusively learned that former NBA star Gilbert Arneas will not be training with the Los Angeles Clippers.

The professional baller worked out at the Clipper’s training facility two months ago, and looked great. Reports later surfaced that the star could be invited to the Clipper’s training camp, which would give Arenas a chance to make the active roster and pick up his NBA career.

But while on the red carpet for Laura Govan’s birthday bash, the 31-year-old told us that he will not be joining the Clippers, and that he plans on going back to China to play for the Chinese Basketball Association.

“With China, I get to go and still play and then I can get back home and spend more time with the kids. I get to be home in February and enjoy the family, I don’t need the NBA money, I have enough of it. Now it’s about spending time with the family and the kids,” Gilbert said, referring to the CBAs short season.

Arenas played in China last season with the Shanghai Sharks, averaging 20.7 points in 14 games. Before playing overseas, the 31-year-old played for the Memphis Grizzlies during their 2011-2012 season.

    Brilliant ploy by both Arenas and the Clips. He goes over to China and plays to keep his form up. (Won’t get much PT with the Clippers atm). Then he comes back in February and gets to rest for a month with the family before signing an end of season deal with the Clippers to finish out the playoffs!!! Well played fellas, well played!!!

Sorry Folks! Martin Lawrence Doesn’t Think ‘Bad Boys 3’ Will Happen

Published

on

Martin Lawrence has pretty much lost hope in plans for another Bad Boys film, and for good reason. Over the last few months, the long-gestating third installment has lost it’s director and release date.

Now according to Lawrence it may have even lost one of it’s boys – co-star Will Smith. “I don’t think we’re going to get one, not the way everything’s turning out,” Lawrence told EW. “Will is off doing another movie, and I don’t think it’s going to happen.”

Just last December Smith told Jimmy Kimmel that Bad Boys 3 aka Bad Boys For Life,  was “very, very, very close” to beginning production. He also added of Lawrence, “I love that dude. That’s among the best times I’ve ever had making movies. So I’m looking forward to it.”

As for Lawrence, he’s ready if the project can get off life support. “I’m there, I’m ready right now,” said Lawrence. “If they wanted to do it, I’m ready, but I don’t have control of that. That’s the studio’s decision.”

Back in March, writer/director Joe Carnahan departed from the Sony Pictures’ flick after months of delays. And director Micheal Bay, who helmed both Bad Boys and Bad Boys II declined to return after too many set-backs. “Pretty soon its going to called Bad Old Boys because they can’t get it together with doing a script,” he told HipHollywood back in 2016. “Thats why I backed out of the process.”
