Matt Barnes Promises That Derek Fisher Will Catch These Hands When He Retires
Matt Barnes is still not over the fact that his former teammate is dating his ex-wife which is a clear violation in the Bro-code handbook. Barnes & Fisher reportedly fought before the season when Matt found out Fisher was at his ex’s house, which got him suspended for a few games.
The Grizzlies take on the New York Knicks tomorrow night and the NBA has already added extra security to make sure nothing goes on between the two during the game. Clearly, Barnes is not over the situation. Barnes made it clear that he’d be avoiding Fisher — only because the Knicks coach might “snitch” again, as he put it.
“I don’t talk to snakes,” Barnes told the Daily News.
“I know I got to keep my mouth shut because then he’ll run and tell,” Barnes said. “So we’re focused on playing that team (the Knicks). And when I’m retired, him and I will cross paths again.”
“I never wish for another man’s downfall. I always knew the NBA would come down hard on me, so I wasn’t surprised… Cause I’m the bad guy.”
Two of Barnes’ teammates – Mario Chalmers and Courtney Lee – had a different theory that they shouted in the background of the interview.
“Because you won (the fight).”
“Probably,” Barnes responded, “because I didn’t snitch.”
