Memphis Grizzlies forward Matt Barnes told the New York Daily News that he still isn’t here for Derek Fisher. He labeled the coach a ‘snake’ and vowed the two will cross paths when he retires:
“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.”
Matt’s hostility comes as a result of the fight he and Derek got into at his estranged wife’s home in Los Angeles last year. When Matt found out Derek was dating Gloria, he showed up at the house and punched him.
The incident earned Matt a two-game suspension.
