On Sunday, vendors at the Orange County Fair barred former NBA All-Star Gilbert Arenas, 33, from winning any more prizes after he swished too many basketballs at carnival booths.

On Sunday night, Arenas posted an Instagram photo of with himself with his family and all the toys he had won. He wrote, “We just got banned from all the basketball hoops at #orangecountyfair … every one screamed #theRimsarebent I screamed #hibachi … #ArenasFamily #CountyFairRockstars”.

When he played in the NBA, Arenas would shout “hibachi” as he took a jump shot to indicate how hot he was.

On Monday, OC Fair spokeswoman Robin Wachner told the Orange County Register said that Arenas had achieved something no one had done before: winning a prize from all 15 basketball games at the fair. She added that he could return another day to win more prizes, but he had reached the maximum winning total for a single day.
