Matt Barnes Reportedly Attacks Derek Fisher For Dating His Estranged Wife

There's plenty of love lost between these two former teammates.

Matt Barnes was none too pleased when he found out that former Los Angeles Lakers teammate Derek Fisher was dating his estranged wife, Gloria Govan. In fact, he went on the offensive against Fisher. 

According to a Wednesday New York Post report, which was later corroborated by Yahoo! Sports, Barnes drove to Fisher's home in Los Angeles on Saturday to confront the New York Knicks head coach about his new romantic relationship with Govan. 

Fisher, who filed for divorce in March from his wife of 10 years, has been dating Govan, a star on VH1's "Basketball Wives LA," for a few months, according to the New York Post. 

The Post reports that Barnes, upon hearing of their relationship while at Memphis Grizzlies training camp in Santa Barbara, California, drove 95 miles to Los Angeles and showed up at Fisher's home while the couple hosted a bonfire for friends. 

A physical confrontation ensued, with Fisher reportedly suffering a few minor scratches. Fisher left the scene before police arrived and doesn't plan to press charges, but Govan plans on filing a restraining order against Barnes, according to the Post's report. 

Needless to say, gone are the good times between Fisher and Barnes. Memories of smiling faces and moments of embrace were wiped away Saturday, but at least this solitary picture of their former kinship remains.

Do better, NBA brotherhood.
