Gilbert Arenas shared his thoughts on John Wall and Kevin Durant getting ready for their return to the NBA.

Arenas believes both players are physically ready and they now have to work on the mental part of their return.

“So, both the boys (Durant and Wall) are back. That’s all you’re trying to make sure: You’re mentally back. You did the physical part.

Now, it’s this (mental) part, making sure all those doors (are) unlocked so when the season hits, you have an open game,” Arenas told Wall in the No Chill Gill Podcast, via The New York Post.

Wall has been out of action since December 2018, due to multiple serious injuries. For his part, Durant suffered a torn ACL in Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals and missed the entire 2019/20 season.
