As his dad worked odd jobs in between playing positions, Arenas developed his basketball game. His father attended Arizona University and played for coach Lute Olson on a team packed with gift. In his second season, Arenas led the Wildcats to the NCAA Championship Final Four as well as a tournament match appearance, that they finally lost to Duke. Arenas subsequently elected to enter the 2001 NBA Draft where he was chosen early in the 2nd round from the Golden State Warriors.

His third season in the professionals demonstrated to that he was prepared for the big time averaging 18.3 points and 6.3 assists for the Warriors. He continued to lead the Wizards and was one of the most volatile players in the league before harms started slowing him down in 2007. He opted from his contract in 2008 but eventually resigned against the Wizards finding a six-year contract worth $111 million. Harms as well as a controversy surrounding Arenas bringing firearms to the locker room (leading to an extended suspension) have curtailed Arenas’ impact lately, as well as in 2010 when he was traded to the Orlando Magic. The following year he was waived and signed together with the Memphis Grizzlies where he backed up the starting point guard. In 2012 he signed to play in China. Arenas has four kids with Laura Govan, who continue to appear in the reality show Basketball Wives.
