Gilbert Arenas: 'I'm Going to Try to Come Back' to the NBA

Three-time NBA All-Star Gilbert Arenas is planning a comeback.

Arenas, who hasn't played at the NBA level since 2011-12 when he appeared in 17 games for the Memphis Grizzlies, spoke with Bleacher Report in promotion of Zya, an interactive musical game from Music Mastermind.

Per Zya's official website, the app allows you to "mash-up world-famous songs" and "mix your own vocal melodies into a surefire hit." Finished products can then be shared via various social-media platforms.

While discussing his involvement with Zya, Arenas also spoke of a potential NBA return next season. The high-scoring guard played for 11 years in the Association, more than seven of which were spent with the Washington Wizards. After brief stints with the Orlando Magic and Grizzlies, he has since stepped away, surfacing only to work out at the Los Angeles Lakers facility this past offseason.

During our conversation, Arenas also talked starting fives, NBA teams he believes could use him now, Kobe Bryant's and Derrick Rose's returns, and reflected on his career and life thereafter.

Believe me when I say his thoughts are a must-read.
