One day after Sacramento Kings swingman Caron Butler's memoir was released, former Washington Wizards teammate Gilbert Arenas disputed his account of the infamous locker room gun incident that took place in December 2009.

According to Chris Lingebach of CBS Washington, Arenas posted a lengthy retort on Instagram—that has since been deleted—in response to the claims made in Butler's book, Tuff Juice: My Journey from the Streets to the NBA.

On Saturday, Arenas took to Instagram again to give his account of Butler's story (NSFW warning: Arenas' posts contain profanity):

Both Arenas and Javaris Crittenton were suspended for the incident, which allegedly escalated to the point of guns being drawn in the Wizards locker room due to a dispute over a card game on a flight.

Butler claimed Arenas owed Crittenton $1,100 and was unwilling to pay, per an excerpt from the book, courtesy of the Washington Post's Dan Steinberg. Based on Arenas' recollection, though, JaVale McGee fairly won the $1,100 in question, but Crittenton complained about what he believed to be a misdeal, according to Lingebach.
