Former NBA star Gilbert Arenas took to Instagram Tuesday to express some changes that he feels should be made to the WNBA, and it had nothing to do with basketball or the quality of the game.

In Arenas’ view, the women in the WNBA would ideally be more attractive and wear less clothing, focusing on the sexuality of the female athletes as opposed to the game that they are on the floor to play.

From his post, Arena said:

“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

So, there’s a lot wrong with this. First and foremost, Arenas must think that during his time in the league, he and all of his peers were a bunch of good-looking guys and that’s why people watched them. Obviously, that’s not the case. People watch basketball because they want to see basketball. Who would have thought that?

Arenas’ preference of how WNBA players would dress is seen in the embedded post below:

His reference to some of the players in the league as “bean pies” is just silly. Again, their purpose isn’t to look good for anybody; they are there to play basketball just like anybody else. If women had a similar masculine makeup to that of men, they wouldn’t have to play in their own league.

The WNBA was created so women had their own major league with an even playing field just like the NBA, not to put on an arousing show.

I also really hope Arenas is kidding, and knows where Tulsa is. Somebody should also tell Arenas that sexism is pretty ugly.
