Gilbert Arenas Seems To Have Real Problem With White Players
Former NBA player Gilbert Arenas has a problem with successful white basketball players.

For months, his commentary has reeked of subtle and oftentimes not-so-subtle anti-white hatred and jealousy.

Arenas' name is trending on social media this week after a podcast with his business partner Shannon Sharpe, during which Arenas called Nikola Jokic "the worst MVP winner in the last 40 years."

Just consume a quarter of the post below to understand how factually incorrect Arenas' argument is:
Quote: <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

On the surface, Arenas' statement reads like another useless take from an uninformed former jock. But with context, it follows a pattern of views Arenas shares about players of the same skin color as Jokic.

Arenas is on a crusade against what he calls "European players." Yet he's always quick to preface said comments by saying he's not referring to Giannis Antetokounmpo or Victor Wembanyama. He's referring to white European players.

The top white players in the NBA are from Europe. "Euro" is code for white.

In December, Arenas defended Draymond Green for backhanding Jusuf Nurkic in the face on the court. Nurkic is a white player from Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Arenas then encouraged Green to assault more Euros – meaning whites – for trying to take the NBA away from black players, who he run the league:
Quote: <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Arenas was likely happy to learn that a black player, Isaiah Stewart, from the Pistons punched a white player, Drew Eubanks, during a pre-game confrontation weeks later.

Stewart took Arenas' advice.

Then, in March, Arenas complained about the waning state of the NBA. However, he didn't blame the scoring inflation, load management, or lack of consequences in regular-season basketball for the diminishing quality of the league.

He blamed, you guessed it, "European players." He called for the NBA to exile those Europs from the league.

"I know what they can do [to fix the NBA]. Get rid of all the Europeans," Arenas said on his podcast.

"You go to college and learn defense. What college do Europeans go to? They don’t go to college whatsoever. They have no athleticism. They have no speed, no jumping ability. They are a liability on defense."


He, again, noted he was not talking about Antetokounmpo or Rudy Gobert.

Arenas is dog-whistling, using the demeaning stereotype that white men can't jump: "They have no athleticism, have no speed, no jumping ability."

Specifically, he is referring to Jokic and Luka.

Later, Arenas said that Luka is not even a top player on the Dallas Mavericks. Luka leads the NBA in scoring at 34 points per game, along with 10 rebounds and nine assists per game. Yet Arenas considers his teammate Tim Hardway Jr., averaging 15 points per game, superior.

Arenas is not a fan of Caitlin Clark, the Iowa sensation rewriting college basketball history books, either. He warns WNBA teams that they best reconsider drafting Clark this April.

According to Arenas, Clark is nothing but "lunch meat."

He hopes teams instead tank in the coming years, so they can draft JuJu Watkins, an 18-year-old basketball player from USC. Arenas would rather look stupid than racially objective.

Last week, he referred to Purdue star Zach Edey as a "waste of lottery pick." (Arenas might be unaware that Edey has a Chinese mother to go along with his white father. He's not fully white.)
Quote: <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Gilbert Arenas' basketball commentary is so egregiously hateful and racist that it reflects poorly on each of his media partners, from Shannon Sharpe to The Volume to Underdog Fantasy.

Sharpe, Volume, and Underdog lost any credibility they once had on topics of race by platforming a character to spew blatant racial animus for profit.


What's worse, anti-white rhetoric regarding star basketball players is not exclusive to Arenas. It's a trend, an ugly trend.

Sheryl Swoopes (via Arenas' podcast), Jemele Hill, Bomani Jones, Paul Pierce, Kendrick Perkins and USA Today have each also participated in the open season on white players.

Call it Excused Racism, the belief that it's socially acceptable to discriminate against white people. Or call it blatant, shameless racism toward white athletes.

Your choice.

Gilbert Arenas was once a star point guard in the NBA. He then carried firearms in an NBA locker room. He has since adopted the vernacular from the vade mecum of black supremacy.

Gilbert arenas is an idiot. He was a jerk when he was a player, and everyone knew it, and he’s a jerk now.

Amazingly jerks can say what they want.

No longer GroupThink 'woke'.  but it was fun while it lasted.

My greater point is the way narratives are presented by folks in media like Jemelle Hill, etc.   I have not seen division among races like we have today.  Can't change the past and blaming the present doesn't work either for what happened in the past.

You can thank none other than Obama for this.

People who fixate on race aren’t the sharpest knives in the drawer. 

Isn’t Gilbert the idiot who went into the stands in Detroit during the game after a fan

I do not know.  I do know you can be a fantastic white basketball player by playing the game a lot AND  if you have athletic ability and desire.   Selling these players short due to skin color is ignorant.

No.  Arenas is the one who brought the gun in a locker room and feuded with teammates which made the teammates scared.  It was Ron Artest who went into the stands the he changed his name to Meta World Peace.

Keep the race card current and there will always be an excuse. Never let that "trump" card go.

Nah, anyone can. Notice he said this on some podcast where he has total control….and not on espn or Fox. Of course ESPN has Kendrick Perkins who says similar stupid stuff.

As an fyi, I was hoping something for you the other day.  Apparently a man from Alabama hit some type or a portion of some type of lottery when he bought his ticket in Ohio.  I hoped maybe you were visiting family in Ohio, played the lottery in Ohio and won
