There may be no I in team, but there are two in insecurity, which is just the way Gilbert Arenas likes it. No. 0 in your program, No. 1 in the hearts of people who saw him start his trip from obscurity at Grant High in Van Nuys, he just finished No. 4 in the NBA in scoring, trailing only Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Allen Iverson, ahead of Dwyane Wade.
