Gilbert Arenas Just Flamed Okafor & Thinks He Needs to Hit the Road!
In a recent post on Instagram, former NBA player and known shit talker Gilbert Arenas just flamed the hell out of Sixer Center Jahlil Oakafor. Commenting on the recent max contract that fellow Center Joel Embiid received, Arenas believes Okafor’s time in Philly are numbered but said it in a not too flattering way. See the post below:
Gilbert who recently had fake IG beef with porn star Mia Khalifia to boost his new show on Comlex “Out of Bounds”, has been going hard as of late. If you’ve been following his account at all, you’d know that he never holds back and takes shots at everyone including his baby mom.
Now Arenas has his sharp tongue and Twitter fingers set on Jahlil. Although many Sixer fans already saw the writing on the wall, Gilbert suggest that Jahlil never had a shot and should be playing in the D League.
In an article on SBNation Jahlil foreshadowed his time in Philly, “I was kind of already thinking that I’m not really a part of this future,” he says of his teammates’ photos and tweets. “So it wasn’t like ‘oh my goodness, they left me out.’ I kind of left myself out.”
He goes on to allude that fans haven’t given him a fair evaluation either, ““I definitely feel like I’m the scapegoat for a lot of The Process issues,” Okafor says. “Something I learned is that when you lose, people find a reason why you’re losing and I think that’s where the defense thing really blew up.”
Sure he hasn’t panned out as expected but he was a steal at the draft and the ceiling was definitely high at the time. Experts still believe Okafor has trade value so it will be interesting to see how the Sixers will handle it after the whole Celtics deal blew up and made things even more awkward.
