Knicks Coach Derek Fisher Involved In Fight With Matt Barnes
The New York Post, is reporting that the New York Knicks head coach Derek Fisher was involved in a scuffle with old teammate, and now Memphis Grizzly Matt Barnes. The whole thing started over Derek Fisher dating Barnes Ex-Wife and when Barnes found out over the weekend, he allegedly tracked down and attacked Fisher. The two played together during Fisher's tenure with the Lakers.
Barnes's ex is Gloria Govan, who stars in the reality show Basketball Wives LA. A source close to Fisher confirmed the fight but said, “Matt came after Derek but he only had a few scratches… Derek’s not going to press charges, he’s going to let it go.” This isn't the trouble maker Barnes first time getting into trouble in 2010 he was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence but he disputed the charges, and again in 2012 on a misdemeanor traffic warrant.
The New York Knicks are aware of the situation, and have not commented. It was extremely suspicious when Kurt Rambis was seen running practice, and now we know why. Fisher was in L.A visiting his children.
