Gilbert Arenas doesn’t hold back, calls 2008 Team USA ‘trash’

Former NBA star Gilbert Arenas didn’t mince words when discussing the 2008 Team USA basketball squad on a recent episode of his podcast, Gil’s Arena

The podcast crew engaged in a heated debate about which Team USA Olympic roster was the greatest since the iconic 1992 Dream Team.

Arenas firmly argued that the 1996 Team USA, featuring notable names like Hakeem Olajuwon and Shaquille O’Neal coming off the bench, was the pinnacle of excellence.

He underscored that even the so-called “worst” players on that roster included Hall of Famers Reggie Miller, Mitch Richmond, and Grant Hill.

However, when the 2008 Team USA was brought into the conversation, Arenas didn’t hesitate to deliver his blunt verdict, simply stating, “trash!”

He later elaborated on his assessment, pointing out that the 2008 team had four players who are unlikely to enter the Hall of Fame: Deron Williams, Carlos Boozer, Tayshaun Prince, and Michael Redd.
