Are you shocked by this? I didn’t think so.
Even though people can pretty much guess that this happens, Gilbert Arenas still took it upon himself to accuse Duke of paying players major money to come play for their basketball program.
It all started when Stephen A. Smith posted a video on Instagram talking about a new California bill that would allow college athletes to get paid through endorsements.
That prompted Arenas to respond to the video in the comments saying players are already getting paid, and he says he knows of two players in the last five years who were paid $200,000 to attend Duke rather than Kentucky.
Arenas’ comment should not come as a surprise to anybody as the recent FBI college basketball scandal should have opened the eyes of fans to what goes on under the table.
