Late last month a UFC 2 video-game simulation showing Matt Barnes beating the brakes off Derek Fisher hit the internet to rave reviews.
In it, Barnes gets the knockout victory with a jaw-shattering left hook.
Well, it turns out that Barnes caught wind of that simulation video just like the rest of the internet did.
"My kids showed me that," Barnes told TMZ Sports cameras recently. "That's what would really happen if it came down to it."
Some say it already did during their real-life altercation when Barnes attacked Fisher last October for dating his ex, Gloria Govan.
He reiterated with TMZ, though, that he doesn't need an Octagon to give Fisher the beats.
"I'll do it to him anywhere, boss," Barnes said.
While once again taking the opportunity to blast his former teammate and friend, the Memphis Grizzlies forward also took the time to acknowledge Kanye West's shout-out to him on "30 Hours," which has Yeezy rhyming about driving 90 miles to whoop ass, referring to the legend of Barnes doing that to approach Fisher.
"I heard it, man. It was dope," Barnes said. "Anytime you could be mentioned by Kanye... but all that stuff is in the past, man. I'm just focused on my kids, the playoffs and enjoying this summer time."
Barnes and the Grizzlies will have a chance to play the role of the bad guys when they visit the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night. A Grizzlies win would prevent the Warriors from notching their NBA record-setting 73rd victory.
