In a big WTF of the day, Gilbert Arena went in on one of the game’s all-time greats when he cirticized Houston Rockets great Hakeem Olajuwon for charging $50k per training session at his big man school. On his podcast, Arenas said:

“Nobody wants the Hakeem Olajuwon sky hook. Nobody wants none of that... You should be ashamed of yourself, charging these young whippersnappers $50,000. When you came in the league in 1984, you wasn’t even making $50,000 a game. You’re trying to make your month back through the youth! Do not charge these boys 50 grand for that bull----.
