Former NBA star Gilbert Arenas clearly has way too much time on his hands. While he’s been out of the league for the past few years, Arenas still loves to chat about his former sport on social media.

Tuesday, the unmarried father of four took to Instagram to show everyone just how big of a sexist jerk he is when he suggested the WNBA should recruit more thong-clad “cutie pies” to its ranks to boost viewership.

“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,” Areas wrote under a video he shared depicting a group of half-naked women playing basketball.

Female athletes have a difficult enough time being taken seriously without folks like Arenas reducing their skills, hard work, and talent to looks.

Arenas attempted to dismiss those who think he’s (rightly) sexist as “ugly,” but three-time WNBA champion, Swin Cash, had the best response ever.

Go Swin!

    Maybe he should just be grateful that the NBA doesn’t have a sexiness requirement. I’ll leave it at that…

    Gilbert Arenas is no prize in the looks department himself.

    So Mr Arenas, if I had my choice someone with your looks (or lack of therein), wouldn’t even be considered for a try out on and NBA team.
    Now if the NBA would only raise there standards on players looks and recruit the more of likes of

    Corey Maggette
    Chris Paul
    Rick Fox
    Tony Parker

    Why every woman here would be happy.

    I’ve had about all I can take from these “I can say, what I want dudes!” but if you dare mention where they themselves are found to be . . . . . wanting, they have a fit.

    Mr Arenas, please have several seats and go take care of your children.
