Former NBA star Gilbert Arenas sparked controversy with his recent remarks on Philadelphia 76ers’ president of basketball operations Daryl Morey, labeling him as “an Instagram guy, not a reality guy” during an episode of Gil’s Arena.

Arenas’ criticism of Morey’s basketball credentials came in the context of the strained relationship between Morey and Sixers superstar James Harden, leading to Harden’s eventual trade to the Clippers.

Arenas also highlighted the perceived contrast between Morey and former face of the team, Elton Brand, suggesting that the team appeared to perform better under Brand’s leadership.
