Another reason to love Gilbert Arenas. Gilbert scored 25 (=$2,500) last night in a very frustrating overtime loss to the New Jersey Nets.

In case you’re wondering he donates the money for the points he scores in both home and away games. For games he doesn’t play in for some reason (injury, etc.) he gives $500.

I have a chance to actually give back in this life,” Arenas said. “When my career is over, I want people to remember me for what I did off the court as well as what I did on the court.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Wizards owner (Abe Pollin ) is matching every dollar Gilbert donates.

Impressed by the gesture of the young player, the Wizards owners matched the offer and chose another 41 schools for the away games.
