The former NBA star sharply criticized the American players who attended the World Cup, saying, “As a group, It could be “Group F” of the United States. If we compare him with other players in the NBA? If Jimmy Butler and Jaylen Brown were there they would be like “Group C”. And this is an “F” group compared to what we have.

“When you’re building that squad and you’re thinking about the best 12 players available… This group is really lazy. I will only save from there to Anthony EdwardsArenas explained on his podcast.

Arenas’ criticism didn’t stop there: “If you look at the list that Steve Kerr has managed to put together… It’s a pity. Listen to me, I am happy for the chosen ones. It’s great for those guys who’ve made it this far, however Some of them I don’t even know. And they probably won’t be newbies on their teams. “

Now, Team USA is in their hands to prove Arenas wrong. For now they will be able to do it in Group C of the World Cup in which they will play Greece, New Zealand and Jordan.
