How can Gilbert Arenas drama possibly start this early? We can't even get through the first preseason game without Arenas saying something that raises eyebrows and causes most of us to say: "Are we at this point already? In the very first week of October?"
Okay, Arenas on Wednesday backed off his comments from Tuesday night after the preseason opener, the ones where he made it sound like he was halfway out the door. He told The Post's Michael Lee after practice that he's not demanding a trade, not requesting a trade, not even suggesting the Washington Wizards trade him. He says he remains committed to the Wizards and he wants to help make John Wall a star. You get the drift.
