Following his ejection and $25,000 fine after the altercation with OKC’s Serge Ibaka and follow-up tweets, Clippers’ Matt Barnes says he’s apologized to players in the past for losing his cool, but won’t be reaching out to Ibaka. Why? He puts it in simple terms: “That’s just someone I don’t like.”
According to Matt Barnes via Jared Zwerling of Bleacher Report:
I have gotten into altercations with other guys that I’m friends with or that I’m cool with, and after the game we either shake hands or a phone call would take place. But I don’t like Serge Ibaka, so I wouldn’t apologize to him. That’s just someone I don’t like.
