— -- It's been several years since Gilbert Arenas has played in the NBA, but the basketball star had a seemingly unfair advantage when he went to play the basketball games at the Orange County Fair in Costa Mesa, California.

The former Washington Wizards and Orlando Magic player wrote on Instagram Sunday: "We just got banned from all the basketball hoops at #orangecountyfair"

"every one screamed #theRimsarebent I screamed #hibachi ...#ArenasFamily #CountyFairRockstars" Arenas added, along with this hilarious photo of him surrounded by all his big winnings.

Despite Arenas' social media post, a rep for the Orange County Fair told ABC affiliate KABC that Arenas is not banned.

The fair has 15 basketball games and you are allowed to win 1 prize per game, per day, the spokesperson said. Arenas won all 15 that day.

Arenas is welcome to return any other day, the rep added -- he had just reached the limit for the day.
