Chicken or Shrimp Sir?

The next time you see Gilbert Arenas walking down the street, feel free to yell out "Hibachi".

In real life a hibachi is a traditional heating device from Japan. It consists of a round, cylindrical or a box-shaped open-topped container, made from or lined with a heatproof material and designed to hold burning charcoal and looks like this:

So how does this apply to the NBA. Recently one Gilbert Arenas started using the term as a way to express that he was heating up. Apparently he only did it at home but Tuesday found room on Amtrak to pack the grill. Maybe because he saw they were playing the Knicks, who get BBQed at home a lot either by the visiting teams or by their fans.

"You ever heard of a hibachi grill? "Tonight was all hibachi, baby. We were cooking chicken and shrimp." - Arenas in the Washington Post

I'm guessing nobody asked him which Knick was the chicken and the shrimp. It didn't matter who was who because the hibachi was cooking up a storm kind of like how these guys were:

Happy Birthday Larry Bird! Have some hibachi on us!
