Our initial thoughts on Gilbert Arenas' Instagram posts
The Wizards were also in the news today because of Gilbert Arenas.
He wrote not one, not two, but three offensive Instagram posts in each of the last couple of days in regard to women's sports including but not limited to the WNBA, player uniforms, and Dallas Wings guard Skylar Diggins.
The W issued a response and many players have followed suit.
WNBA/NBA Statement Regarding Gilbert Arenas' Comments pic.twitter.com/yZ8Nga6weZ— WNBA (@WNBA) December 16, 2015
Even though Arenas hasn't played for the Wizards in nearly five years, the news hits us hard. This team is where he enjoyed his greatest success and biggest downfall. Unfortunately, the latter and immature statements like what we've seen today are what he will be known for more.
I'm saddened and disappointed by those Instagram posts. They don't represent what we here at Bullets Forever and the Wizards fanbase as a whole stand for.
We will talk about this more later in the week, but I wanted to let you know our initial thoughts and statements on them. Let's finish this road trip with a win.
