Philly Will Do That To You

May 3, 2007, 11:16 AM EDT

Former Sixer Matt Barnes was interviewed by HoopsAddict.com:

HoopsAddict.com: You’re playing for a legendary Coach in the personage of Don Nelson. Describe the experience of playing for “Nellie”?

Matt Barnes: It has been a dream come true playing
for Coach Nelson. I was in Philadelphia prior to coming to Dallas and I
was thinking retirement. I was disrespected badly by Mo Cheeks while in
Philadelphia and was contemplating pursuing a football career.



Matt Barnes:
I had a bad experience with Mo Cheeks.
No Coach ever talked to me in the matter and he did beat down my
confidence. I was wondering if his view was how the league (NBA)
thought about me.

Philadelphia!  Where even professional atheletes making millions of dollars feel like nothings.
