As the 2015-16 NBA season was getting ready to begin and the preseason hype was all around, there was an off-court incident between former friends and teammates.
New York Knicks head coach Derek Fisher and Memphis Grizzlies forward Matt Barnes, former teammates on the Los Angeles Lakers, were involved in an incident in October that saw Barnes and Fisher get into a reported physical altercation.

The NBA said they would be doing their own private investigation and it appears that there is a result of the issues between the two parties. Barnes will be getting suspended by the NBA.
