Gilbert Arenas has a grim outlook for Isaiah Stewart after the Pistons forward’s bloody scuffle with LeBron James on Sunday.
After James elbowed him in eye, Stewart repeatedly charged at the Lakers star in a fit of rage — something Arenas suggested he’ll likely be traded for.
In a comment on Instagram, Arenas suggested Stewart should “pack all S–T, pack yo winter jackets and boots becuz yo about to be traded to (Budapest) somewhere” because “you can’t charge at the #KING like that on tv.”
Arenas warned Stewart that he “will be drug tested expeditiously just to make sure that rage ain’t drug related.”
Sunday’s incident sparked an on-court fracas that saw players and coaches holding back Stewart, who required five stitches after the game.
Arenas wrote that Stewart hasn’t “read the memo on fight attempts in the NBA” and listed four players you “don’t square up with,” including James, Nets star Kevin Durant and Warriors duo Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
The elbow occurred in the third quarter of the Lakers’ 121-116 win over the Pistons. Stewart was ejected from the game after getting two technical fouls for his role in the commotion. James was also tossed and called for a Flagrant 2 foul.
Arenas also claimed that the Lakers-Pistons scuffle was worse than the gun incident he had in 2009 in the Wizards’ locker room.
The three-time All-Star was suspended by the NBA for the remainder of the 2009-10 season for bringing unloaded firearms into the locker room after a heated argument with teammate Javaris Crittenton.
The NBA has not yet issued additional discipline for Stewart or James.
