It’s very clear that the rest of the world has made huge strides when it comes to producing quality basketball talent and having quality leagues. But, former UNC and NBA guard Rashad McCants got fried by Gilbert Arenas for saying one of his former teams in Lebanon would compete with the NBA Champion Denver Nuggets.

The name Rashad McCants may not instantly ring a bell. But, he starred on the 2005 University of North Carolina national title team alongside Raymond Felton and Sean May.

Rashad McCants was then drafted 14th overall in the 2005 NBA Draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves. His best season in the NBA was in 2007-2008, when he averaged 14.9 points per game for the Timberwolves in the season after they traded away Kevin Garnett. He last played in the league the year after, and bounced around in overseas leagues.

He played for Lebanese club Homenetmen in 2014-2015, and must think highly of his time there. So highly, in fact, he thinks that they could compete with the defending NBA Champion Denver Nuggets. Former All-Star guard and constant newsmaker Gilbert Arenas was incredulous. Take a look.

Nobody on this roster is guarding Nikola Jokíc, let alone anyone else on the Nuggets. If by competitive he means they would keep it within 100 points, he could be right.

Safe to say, no one will be seriously considering hiring Rashad McCants as an analyst soon.
