Gilbert Arenas has never been known as a defensive stopper on the basketball court, but he's hoping for better luck in a courtroom.
The Orlando Magic star has filed a motion seeking an injunction against the VH1 reality series "Basketball Wives." The Hollywood Reporter says Arenas is angry that his former fiance Laura Govan, the mother of four of his kids, is set to have a role on the latest edition of the show. Now he's working to make sure the controversial show never gets broadcast.
Arenas, 29, is asking the court for a preliminary injunction that would prevent the producers of the show from using his name or the term "Basketball Wives."
The former All-Star guard has made $100,637,492 from the Warriors, Wizards and Magic during his NBA career.
The motion will be heard on Aug. 22 -- a week before the debut of the new season. If Arenas is successful, "Basketball Wives" might end up pulled from VH1's programming schedule.
