LeBron James, Lakers hilariously roasted by Gilbert Arenas over free agency haul
In case you didn’t know, former NBA All-Star Gilbert Arenas goes by the Instagram moniker “no.chill.gil”. This is exactly what the Washington Wizards icon recently exhibited when he went on an all-out, no-chill roasting of LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers following their impressive haul in free agency.
Arenas decided to focus on the fact that the Lakers are set to be one of, if not the oldest team in the league next season. No chill Gil did not hold back:

Gilbert Arenas got jokes. As a matter of fact, he decided to throw in a handful of jabs in his caption as he shared a photo of LeBron and a list containing the ages of LA’s players for next season. All of his jokes centered on how the Lakers are so old, going as far as saying that this is going to be a “senior citizens discount team.”
To be fair, Arenas does have a valid point here. The average age of the Lakers will be 31 next season. The age gap between the oldest (Carmelo Anthony, 37) and the youngest (Talen Horton-Tucker, 20) player on the squad is 17 years. That’s almost one full adult.
For what it’s worth, Arenas is currently 39 years young. He actually isn’t too far off LA’s current ceiling in terms of its players’ ages so perhaps Agent Zero himself has been fantasizing about a return to the hardcourt? Then again, probably not. He’s clearly happy with mocking the NBA from where he’s sitting.
