Former NBA player Gilbert Arenas is no stranger to locker-room incidents.

After the Rockets looked to take a confrontation into the Clippers locker room on Monday, Arenas was asked to give his thoughts on the most recent NBA locker-room feud.

He went on to provide more details about his 2009 gun incident with then-teammate Javaris Crittenton.

Arenas was a guest on Open Run where he discussed the discipline handed down by the league. He was suspended for the remainder of the 2009-10 season but claimed that it wasn't about the guns - but rather for conduct detrimental to the team. He believed a one-or-three-game suspension would have gone his way if it was only about the guns.

Arenas described the incident with Crittenton as more sarcastic than it was made out to be, claiming he was baiting Crittenton to act on his threats. Arenas' teammate at the time, Caron Butler, detailed the account differently in a chilling excerpt:

We had the next day off, but on the following day, December 21, practice started at ten o'clock at the Verizon Center so we all wandered in a little earlier.

When I entered the locker room, I thought I had somehow been transported back to my days on the streets of Racine. Gilbert was standing in front of his two locker stalls, the ones previously used by Michael Jordan, with four guns on display. Javaris was standing in front of his own stall, his back to Gilbert.

"Hey, MF, come pick one," Gilbert told Javaris while pointing to the weapons. "I'm going to shoot your [expletive] with one of these."

Arenas went on to call Butler a snitch after that.

Crittenton is currently serving a 23-year prison sentence for voluntary manslaughter with a weapon.
