NEW YORK, Dec. 16, 2015 – The following statement is from league spokesman Mike Bass on behalf of the WNBA and NBA:
“Gilbert Arenas’s comments are repugnant, utterly disrespectful and flat-out wrong. WNBA players are strong, talented and determined individuals who give it their all on the court and serve as inspiring role models to millions around the world. They should be celebrated for their accomplishments, not disparaged with ignorant insults.”
