[Watch] No Respek: Salty Matt Barnes Gives Zero Fs About Derek Fisher and Colin Kaepernick

Here's what the NBA forward said he'd do to both of them.

Published May 17, 2016

To say that Matt Barnes could go zero to 100 real quick when it comes to Derek Fisher would be an understatement.

But just to be extra clear, the Memphis Grizzlies forward wants everyone to know that Colin Kaepernick could catch that fade, too.

TMZ Sports caught Barnes in the airport Tuesday and they made sure to ask him if he'd rather fight Fisher or Kaepernick in a charity bout.

His answer?

"I'll f**k both of 'em up," Barnes said with zero Fs and no respek whatsoever.

When TMZ tried to dig for more, Barnes clarified that he doesn't want to fight either of them. But if he had to, it'd "go down."


Think Barnes is being salty because his former teammate, Fisher, is dating his ex Gloria Govan or is Matt merely reinforcing the notion that he's about that savage life?

Barnes already reportedly beat the brakes off Fisher during a confrontation last October. He also seemed to enjoy the internet having him destroy Derek in a simulated UFC match last month, saying he'll "do it to him anywhere."

But earlier this month, when Fisher seemingly trolled Barnes by wishing Gloria a Happy Mother's Day on Instagram and using a shot of her with the two sons she shares with Matt, the wild NBA forward surprisingly took the high road. And it could have been different, considering that many of Barnes's IG followers were begging him to give Fisher the beats once again for his lack of respek.

Perhaps, this TMZ footage was Matt's way of offering a refresher for who he is and what he's capable of.

As for Kaepernick, his name was brought up because TMZ had previously reported that Barnes's beef with the NFL quarterback dates back several years because he feels Colin disrespected him.

For good measure, Barnes also called Kaep a "h**" last May.

Hey, Barnes's Grizzlies have been eliminated from the playoffs, it's still the offseason for Kaepernick and the NFL and Fisher is still unemployed after being fired as the New York Knicks' coach in February...so it's possible for Matt to put hands on one of these guys.
