Gilbert Arenas' reaction to the fight between the Los Angeles Lakers and Detroit Pistons is going viral on social media.

Sunday night, both Lakers star LeBron James and Pistons big man Isaiah Stewart were ejected from their game.

LeBron took a clear swipe at Stewart during a rebound attempt, drawing blood. Enraged, Stewart had to be held back by several teammates as he attempted to go after LeBron.

It was a pretty wild scene.

Arenas, who played against LeBron in the mid-2000s in Washington, took to Instagram with his reaction to the fight.

NBA fans seem to be entertained by it.

"Gilbert Arenas with perhaps the greatest take in NBA history," one fan tweeted.

"He did not lie at all. Only CP3 & Rondo throwing hands. The rest of them just be dancing. Dude had Bron right there in his face & waited until his boys came to act like he was going to do something all that running for what? Rondo/Cp3> this anyday lol," one fan added on Twitter.

The Lakers went on to beat the Pistons, 121-116, on Sunday evening.

It will be interesting to see if any further punishment is handed down.
