Josh Smith calls Hawks fans 'bandwagoners'

The interplay between Smith and the Philips Arena crowd was lively throughout the night. Smith, an Atlanta native who played his first nine NBA seasons with the Hawks, was booed loudly whenever he touched the ball. The catcalls grew louder in the third quarter, after Smith drained a 3-pointer that rattled around the rim several times before dropping in. Smith then shushed the crowd by placing his finger over his lips as the Hawks called timeout. “I mean, those fans are fickle, very fickle and bandwagoners,” Smith said. “It really doesn’t mean anything to me.”

Peace prevailed between the two Friday but Barnes now is 3-0 against Fisher — two Memphis victories and triumphant in the brawl. “I get booed everywhere,’’ Barnes said. “I don’t mind it I enjoy. It means you’re doing something. They don’t boo you if you’re not doing anything. They’re booing if you’re doing something right which is what an away crowd is supposed to do. It’s what they’re here to do and they do a good job if it.’’
