Former Washington Wizards star Gilbert Arenas retired from the NBA more than a decade ago. However, he has continued to stay associated with the basketball world with his polarizing takes. His latest remarks about a 7x NBA champion weren’t received well, causing both sides to engage in a war of words. Arenas launched his own defense recently.

It all started back when Arenas was asked to choose between James Harden’s $300 million contract with zero rings or the 7x champion’s $54 million contract. Along with siding with Harden, Arenas chose to belittle the former Los Angeles Lakers star’s accomplishments.

Horry had claimed that Arenas accused him of being someone who rides on the “coattails” of every team he was with. One of Horry’s co-hosts proceeded to say “Well, that’s bulls**t”. Arenas paused right at this moment to thank the co-host for making the comment. “He got caught up by his own host. Thank you, white man,” said Arenas during the clip.

The 3x NBA All Star made it clear that Horry’s “coattails” comment was not what the latter made it out to be. “I did not say this. I did not say he was hanging on other people’s coattails” Arenas added. “He’s projecting. “Not feeling like he made his disdain against Horry clear, Arenas took a dig at the latter’s nickname. “Big Shot Bob. I mean, that could be a great basketball name or, like, straight po*n title.”
Highlighting the moment on social media, Arenas captioned it by writing “I said ill take 300 million over 7 rings and Robert Big shot, made up his own version of what I said,” accompanied by a few laughing emojis. The former player went so far as to name the YouTube Link “Lying Azz Bob”.

The clip caught the attention of the 53-year-old. During an episode of ‘Big Shot Bob Pod with Robert Horry’, the former player brought up the issue. He mentioned that the remarks were heard by his wife as well, who was visibly upset with them. This compelled her to ask her husband to respond on the same. Robert Horry, however, came out with a mixed message.
“I don’t want to read it. I told my wife I don’t want to hear it because you know I don’t argue with idiots,” said Robert Horry. While the 7x champ claimed that he didn’t have anything to say to Arenas, his “idiot” remark seemed to be a statement in itself.
