I hope Wizards' fans appreciated Eddie Jordan's comments after the game.  Arenas is definitely putting together hall of fame career with his abilities; but, don't look to Arenas to make a good team great.  Not with his current attitude.

Eddie Jordan named great leaders in Steve Nash, Jason Kidd.  Nash took a mediocre team and made it into a West Conf Finals team for two years and Jason Kidd took the Nets out of the gutter and into the NBA Finals twice.  And they're work ethic and team play were just as important as their offensive execution.    

Guess it is kind of harsh for Coach to say the obvious and indirectly bash Arenas after the game - but he's making an important point for teams that want to improve.   I think Coach is actually challenging Arenas to change and  become a leader by his comments.  Kobe's become a leader in last two years ( he didnt have to be more than a hotshot during 2000-2 titles).  Kobe's changed his whole attitude and Lakers are benefitting enormously so Arenas could become that valuable a player too.

There's nothing here not too agree.  I don't think any Wizards fan would argue that Arenas is the leader of the team, it is very clearly Jamison at this point.  Look at their turn around when he came to the team (in fact if you want to do some searching I think at one point I called him the most important player to play on the team since Wes Unseld, which might be overstating it a little bit).  With that being said, Arenas is the player that makes the team go.  When he's on his game they're almost impossible to stop because it also means that he's getting shots for Butler, Jamison, and the rest of the gang.  And yes, I think that Jordan is trying to challenge him because right now someone needs to step up because without Jamison on the floor this team is dead in the water.

Yeah, Arenas needs to be challenged and he needs to meet that challenge or this team will slip, fast.

He needs to transfer his energy on the floor into the locker room, that's all. He'll learn that he can't win by himself. He needs to get his team into it and then do his job.
