Why does no one want Gilbert Arenas’ sharks? Arenas left the Washington Wizards in 2010, but he just sold his house in D.C. (actually, Great Falls VA) — after slashing a million bucks off the price and removing his giant rumpus room shark tank. Apparently it wasn’t a popular item.
I don’t know why — according to court documents which came to light during his divorce, Arenas was spending only $5,000 a month to feed them and $1,500 a month for a guy to take care of them.
The house finally sold sans sharks for $2.5 million, according to Curbed.com.
Arenas put the house on the market two years ago for $3.5 million, and the home would just not sell. Since the house first went on sale, it has seen some renovations, like the removal of a giant built-in shark tank in one of the rooms.
The house has 7 bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms, a gym, and a movie theater. Perhaps the best part of the property is the backyard which has a pool with a slide and a grotto with a full wet bar.
Arenas last played in the Chinese Basketball Association for the — wait for it — Shanghai Sharks, in 2013.
