One of the hot basketball playing thong models in the video Gilbert Arenas used to bash the WNBA says Gilbert is NOT entirely wrong ... the league needs to sex it up if it hopes to survive.
And get this ... the model is a former college basketball player who says she knows firsthand the challenges female athletes have when it comes to getting respect.
Her name is Melody Rae --who played at the U of Tennessee at Martin -- and she tells TMZ Sports, "I'm all about empowering women ...and if wearing sexy attire helps to promote the game in any way I'm all for it."
Gilbert posted a video of Melody and another model, Tamra, hoopin' around in their undies ... a video that was a behind the scenes moment for a calendar shoot for SmilePillows.com.
