It used to be Vinnie the “Microwave” Johnson, but now the honor goes to the inestimable Gilbert Arenas, or the player formerly known as “hibachi” (which itself was a crowd pleaser).
“We started off worse than we can imagine, started off slow,” said Arenas, who recently declared that his new nickname is Nacho. “Now we’re picking up some momentum. We’re just trying to get out of this November alive, because we know December and January is our time.”
Arenas is an alma matter of Arizona. Go Wildcats.
