Let me start by saying this letter isn’t necessarily for you and I know that you could care less what I have to say but since you took it upon yourself to ridicule and insult an entire group of women I felt it necessary to send a message to young girls and women who may have caught wind of your antics.
I really hate that this happened because as a native Washingtonian I was a fan of yours Gilbert. I am a Wizards fan and you brought excitement to our city. You were different, you had charisma and on top of that you were a pretty damn good ball player. I even bought into the whole hibachi craze with your buzzer-beating game winners. I was excited when you lead us to four consecutive playoff seasons. Yea we lost in the first round three years in a row but still. I could finally represent my home team and not hear a bunch of hate from the haters. We loved you Gil, the entire city was on your side. We even rooted for you when you were traded to Orlando. The hibachi grill was definitely turned off but we still wanted the best for you.
But we all know you crave attention Gilbert. Everyone knows this. A quick scroll down your Instagram feed is a dead giveaway. Besides, what professional athlete brings guns into their locker room to threaten a teammate? Seriously, I know you didn’t graduate from college but a degree doesn’t give you common sense and that was just stupid. Honestly, we shouldn’t be surprised about what you said about the women in the WNBA. How can we be surprised when you publicly disrespect the mother of your children? A woman who apparently isn’t as bad as you make her out to be or you wouldn’t have had four children with her. Or would you? There’s that common sense again. Yea you’re rich. Yea you’ve made well over 100 million dollars during your NBA career. Yea you stole checks for years from the Wizards with that awful 6 year 111 million dollar deal they gave you but money doesn’t make one happy and clearly you are miserable with your own life or just plain bored.
