Penny Hardaway accuses Barnes of mocking NBA and Memphis coaches

Penny Hardaway has not let it go.

The Memphis basketball coach continued his verbal jabs against Tennessee coach Rick Barnes Wednesday, this time on ESPN's "Get Up."

Hardaway responded to a question from ESPN's Jalen Rose asking about his relationship with Barnes.

Hardaway prefaced his feelings saying, "I've always had a lot of respect for Coach Rick Barnes."

Then came the jabs.

"He was kind of mocking the NBA and our coaching staff and I really didn’t like that," Hardaway said.

"I couldn't let him do my team like that," he added.

Barnes and the Vols won over Memphis on the road, 102-92, December 15. Hardaway has since expressed his feelings that Tennessee players instigated a late game stand off with his Memphis team.
