The debate started on the No Chill podcast with Gilbert Arenas with McCants, Josiah Johnson, and Brandon Jennings talking about Noah Lyles’s comments about NBA teams being called world champions.
Arenas aligned with the NBA, having the best players on this planet, fitting the world champion title. Well, McCants felt different about Arenas crowing NBA players the best, sparking a debate on international players vs. those in the NBA.
The hilarious clip garnered significant attention as McCant’s name started to appear in tweets throughout the night. The “We have a chance” comment is funny because it comes on the heels of McCants stating that Gregg Popovich is not a good head coach.
Enough back story: let us look at how social media reacted to McCants believing his Lebanese team has a chance against current NBA champion Denver Nuggets.
Gilbert Arenas and Kenyon Martin are losing their minds on Rashad McCants about the Noah Lyles comment
Rashad McCants: Any team I'm on we got a chance to win
Kenyon Martin: How many games did your team win in the NBA, yall was in last place every year

The way Rashad McCants said “We’d have a chance” when saying Lebanon could hang with the Nuggets is exactly what I sound like when I’m getting throttled in Street Fighter 6 lol

B Jennings and McCants actually explained Noah Lyles & Greg Pop’s point right at first in the full clip. They had Gil sweating mad shifting the conversation elsewhere trying to make his point. https://t.co/3xfnjoV25W
