Gilbert Arenas is the Sneaker Champ

words_Brandon Richard

Throughout this NBA season, you've seen our "Gilbert Watch" posts, chronicling the nightly footwear selection of Orlando Magic guard Gilbert Arenas. Now, Gilbert himself has gotten in on the fun, launching a new sneaker microsite where he proclaims to be the NBA's first true sneakerhead.

Appropriately under the URL http://sneakerchamp.gilbertarenas.com, Gilbert and staff will also recap his nightly footwear selection and leave registered users with the opportunity to comment on each selection and their passion for the sneaker game. The calendar dates back to his first game of the season wearing the Air Jordan Retro 9 Premio against the New York Knicks. Fans may also have the chance to help Gilbert pick his game-time kicks in the future.

In addition to being the Sneaker Champ, Gilbert is also set to make a return to social media. Mr. Personality is back on the site under the username @thesneakerchamp, so we can expect to hear some interesting and humorous quotes from Agent 1 in the near future.

Gil's Sneaker Champ site officially launched today. What does he have up his sleeve for Orlando's game against the Heat tonight?
