NBA player Matt Barnes is known for having a temper problem around the league. Barnes has had altercations with players such as Serge Ibaka, James Harden, Kobe Bryant and many more. However, that is on the court. Barnes has gone off the deep end and taken his anger to a whole new level.
Barnes drove 95 miles to his ex-wife’s Gloria Govan house “to beat the s**t out of former player and current New York Knicks coach Derek Fisher. Fisher and Govan have been dating for a couple of months now. Govan was throwing a party at her house that Barnes found out about.
When Barnes arrived, he attacked Fisher immediately. When asked about the altercation, Barnes told ESPN he went to Govan’s house to “check on his sons, not confront Fisher.”
Now Barnes may have fooled the media, but no offense, I don’t think he made a two-hour drive to check on somebody. If you making a hike that far, your going for a good reason. I don’t believe nobody is wasting that much gas for a checkup.
Barnes and Fisher were teammates on the Los Angeles Lakers from 2010-2012. It’s going to be very interesting when the Knicks and Memphis Grizzles play against each other on January 16. I wonder if Govan is going to travel to Tennessee to see that game?
