Matt Barnes Still Wants To Fight Derek Fisher Over Gloria Govan
At this point most of you are familiar with the infamous fade the Matt Barnes and Derek Fisher caught over Gloria Govan.
Well, the time has now arrived for Barnes and Fisher to see each other on the basketball court as the Memphis Grizzlies play the New York Knicks on Saturday night. Based on comments that Barnes made to the NYDailyNews, he’s not over it…
“I don’t talk to snakes,” Barnes told the Daily News.
Barnes, 35, is appealing to recover the lost wages from his two-game suspension levied by the league last month, an effort he acknowledges is fruitless because of his reputation. And while he thinks very little of his former Lakers teammate, Barnes told the News he didn’t want the league to discipline Fisher for his role.
“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.”
Matt’s teammates believe the only reason the NBA suspended him and not Fisher is because Derek got washed.
“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.”
We have a hard time believing that Matt Barnes knows how to keep his mouth shut. After all, this is a man who invited James Harden’s MOTHER to insert his lightskinned peen into her mouth.
If the Grizzlies go up big, there’s no telling WHAT Matt might say. We’ll be watching that game for SURE.
