Would Matt Barnes really risk further banishment — just to prove a point to Derek Fisher?
Barnes and the Memphis Grizzlies will host the Knicks for the first time since the forwards training camp altercation with the Knicks coach at the home of Gloria Govan.
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.
Barnes, who dropped 18 points in Memphis’ victory Thursday over the Pistons — promised that he and Fisher would throw paws at some point — again!
“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 wouldn’t expect fireworks — but who really knows with these two.
