There’s a story behind the 2008-era T-shirt Gilbert Arenas posted on his Instagram on Thursday, but it can’t live up to whatever reasons you’d imagine as to why Gilbert Arenas has an article of clothing depicting a cartoon John McCain boxing against Gil’s former Washington Wizards teammate Nick Young.
John McCain Rumors
As Bullets Forever notes, Arenas used a connection at UNDERCRWN to play off their shirts featuring Barack Obama beating John McCain at sports and got a custom-made Nick Young tee. Company founder Dustin Canalin explained: Nick Young, a favorite target for Gil, must of opened his mouth one too many times. We sent a few dozen tees down to DC during the heat of the presidential race. The entire team had them on.
