On Friday in New Orleans, the 66th annual bash kicks off with a series of basketball games and parties all leading up to the main event on Sunday (Feb. 19). Basketball fans from all over the globe come to see their favorite players and just enjoy the surrounding festivities.
But Gilbert thinks, for women, there should be an age cut-off.
In an Instagram post, the 35-year-old former professional basketball player shared an iPhone notes statement of his intellectual findings.
“Attention old b**ches 34 and up, don’t bring your ass to All Star Weekend 2017,” he begins. “Let these young h*es enjoy life. You old h*es had a chance when Shaq and Kobe were winning. Take your bitter ass on a Tom Joyner cruise. Leave NBA All Star weekend alone.”

He captions the post with a colorful remark about how the aforementioned “old” women are probably dating the ESPN announcers and half-court league players.
Sadly, Gilbert has always been on the right side of dumb.
If you’re a masochist and scroll through his Instagram page, you’ll find more problematic statements about women and the Black community. But this All-Star comment is interesting since he’s over the age limit dictated by himself and is suggesting that women solely go to this annual event to have sex—as opposed to actually enjoying the sport and parties.
Critical thinking is an endangered species these days.
