Memphis Grizzlies forward Matt Barnes and New York Knicks head coach Derek Fisher, formerly teammates on the Los Angeles Lakers for two seasons, were reportedly involved in a physical altercation at the home of Barnes’ estranged wife, Glovia Govan.
Govan, a former “Basketball Wives” cast member, has reportedly been dating Fisher since separating from Barnes. The Grizzlies forward, who is no stranger to fighting, allegedly showed up to the home with bad intentions for D-Fish.
Sources told The Post that Barnes became incensed when his 6-year-old twin sons Carter and Isaiah called Saturday to tell him that Fisher was at the house.“Barnes went crazy. He got in his car and went to the house and went after Fisher,” one source said.
The NBA will investigate this love triangle, and if these reports are proven to be true, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Barnes is punished. The Knicks and Grizzlies don’t play each other until January 16th, so if you are anxious to see the sequel to this soap opera-like story, you’re going to have to wait a bit.
