Former NBA star and current social media user Gilbert Arenas unleashed some opinions on the WNBA with an Instagram post. It appears he believes the league would be better if it incorporated more scantily-clad fitness models into the mix.
"NOW this is what america was hoping for when they announced the #WNBA back in 1996… not a bunch of chicks running around looking like,cast members from#orangeisthenewblack…dont get me wrong,they have few #cutiepies but theres a whole alotta #beanpies running around hahahahahaha if #skylardigginscame out like this,I dont care if she missed every layup..imma buy season tickets and I dont even know where the f*** #tulsa is hahahaha#2016newwnbaoutfitPLS and if u think this is sexist,9 times out of 10 u the ugly one and we didnt pay to come see u play anyway #donkeykong …smdh#thiswillbeawesome "
That 9 out of 10 stat may need some citation. There are surely some people who view these thoughts as sexist who aren’t currently on a WNBA roster.
I hate to crush a misguided dream here but Arenas shouldn’t hold his breath waiting for such a change to happen.
