Ex-NBA star guard Gilbert Arenas, who last played professionally in China for the Shanghai Sharks in 2013, and former NFL tight end, who played for the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens, Shannon Sharpe give their full reactions to the brutal YouTube sensation Jake Paul knockout of former NBA player Nate Robinson in an exhibition boxing match leading up to the Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Junior fight on Nov. 28, 2020, in Los Angeles, Calif.

Arenas and Sharpe discuss Nate Robinson underestimating the YouTuber and not taking the fight seriously. Arenas, who knows Robinson personally, described what hurt the former NBA player the most: “Because of the Curry’s, the LeBron’s, everyone laughing, that probably hurt Nate Robinson’s soul more than the actual fight.”
