Now it all makes sense, why Monday night's Presidential debate centered on foreign policy: Gilbert Arenas playing professionally in China screams of international incident.

We kid, we kid the former Washington Wizards star guard and baller formally known as "Agent Zero", who is reportedly close to signing a one-year deal with the Guandong Southern Tigers.

Last season Arenas hooked on with the Memphis Grizzlies for 17 regular season games, averaging 4.2 points. Though the Grizzlies advanced to the postseason, Arenas was a virtual non-factor and no NBA team brought the 30-year-old guard to training camp this year.

At that point, if you want to keep playing, start looking overseas. China has become a hot spot for former stars to keep on keeping on hardwood style. Heck, Stephon Marbury's been such a hit in China, a statue was officially unveiled in his honor this year.

Come on Gilbert, go to China. Get your statue. At least start tweeting once you get there.
