Former NBA star Gilbert Arenas has put his two cents into the mess between Matt Barnes and Derek Fisher, giving his full account of what happened via Instagram.

“I know the story because I was around the corner,” he wrote.

If you recall, Barnes got into a scrap with Fisher in October at the home Barnes used to share with estranged wife Gloria Govan. At the time, Barnes said he wasn’t feeling the way Fisher was interacting with Barnes’ kids.

Barnes was suspended two games by the NBA for his role in the fight. This week, the incident returned to the headlines after Barnes was fined for comments he made towards Fisher over the weekend.

With the story resurfacing, Arenas – who nearly became Barnes’ brother-in-law after dating Gloria’s sister Laura – shared his account of what happened on Instagram.

In a nutshell, he says Barnes was “whopping” Fisher and that Fisher was running around the house screaming. Arenas also confirms that Fisher’s bodyguard was the one who called police.

According to ESPN, the New York Knicks coach, who flew to California Saturday afternoon to see his children and missed practice on Monday because of travel issues, took time out from Wednesday’s preseason Knicks game to respond to the situation.

For Fisher, the situation is a “personal and private” matter that shouldn’t be addressed in a professional setting.

“Personal and private matters are personal and private,” Fisher said. “We’re obviously public figures, but we’re at work. So I won’t be commenting on anything that’s happened personally or privately for me.”

Fisher’s comments come after Barnes emerged as a trending topic Wednesday (Oct. 8) following news of him driving 95 miles to Los Angeles home of his estranged wife Gloria Govan to “beat the sh*t” out of Fisher, his former teammate.

Despite remaining mum regarding the incident, Fisher did reveal that he spoke about the alleged fight with Barnes to Knicks players.

“I wanted to make sure that before they were asked about it at least that they heard from me directly about my state of mind and how present I am,” Fisher said. “I’ve been through a lot in life and experienced a lot of things. And sometimes we go through things in life that we can or cannot control. I’m here; I’m focused. It’s not something that’s going to take me away from who we are and what we’re trying to do. And I assured them of that. The only way to do that is to go out and do your job, and that’s what we’re going to do tonight.”

For Carmelo Anthony, Fisher’s situation “kind of caught everybody off guard.”

“Nobody really knew what was going on,” the Knicks forward said. “Still, nobody knows the details of what’s happening.”
