Former NBA player Kwame Brown did not take kindly to his name being brought up on Showtime’s “All the Smoke” podcast hosted by Stephen Jackson and Matt Barnes last week. Brown took to social media to respond to Gilbert Arenas speaking about him being drafted #1 overall by the Wizards in 2001 and some believing that he didn’t live up to his potential.
Arenas believes that Michael Jordan destroyed Kwame’s confidence while they played together on the Wizards, and he added that Wizards fans booing Kwame at home games also didn’t help. Arenas went on to call Kwame a “show pony” who looked good but didn’t produce so well.
In his video, Kwame states, “Stephen Jackson maybe you can put that motherf**king blunt out and pull your pants up on your ass and put that rag down and act like a grown ass man instead of a little ass boy.”
He then addressed Barnes, stating, “Becky with the good hair, go to counseling and Gilbert you already knew, I was quiet on you for years and I wasn’t going to say nothing…you took food, what did I get 3 years/ 85 mil for the Lakers, I was supposed to get 88…N***** you took millions out my mouth, and you shout like you love black folks, you’re the whitest black boy I’ve ever known.” You can hear his full statement above.
