Following the altercation between Matt Barnes and Derek Fisher due to Fisher dating Barnes’ ex-wife, things remained quiet between the two until now. Barnes is finally speaking about the situation and he does not seem to have any less hatred for Fisher than he did on that night. He said the following:
“We’re two grown men who should have handled two grown men’s business, but he wanted to run and tell the cops and the NBA. The New York Post is run by the New York Knicks, so it’s obviously a way of trying to make me look like the bad guy.”
Barnes is basically calling out Fisher for being a snitch. For what it’s worth, the story was believed to have Barnes’ ex-wife call the police on him and Fisher left before they arrived with no desire to press charges.
