Derek Fisher pulled Matt Barnes’ ex and the Kings guard/forward is continuing to pull the former NBA player and coach’s card.
Their beef centers around Gloria Govan, Barnes’ now ex-wife and Fisher’s current girlfriend. Back in October 2015, the former Lakers teammates had some sort of an altercation after Barnes’, reportedly responding to a text message from one of his children, showed up at Govan’s home.
Barnes started 2016 with an expletive-laden Instagram rant, recapping the drama of his love life, which according to him, also included a brief stint dating pop star Rihanna.
Needless to say there’s no love lost between him and Fisher. So, when Barnes got wind of a remark Fisher made about him in a Bleacher Report feature, he had to clap back.
“I just want to win, man,” James said. “That’s all that matters to me. I got no personal problems with nobody.”
Of course, Chalmers played alongside James in Miami while hoisting championship banners.
Though Chalmers has not played since suffering an Achilles injury last March, James thinks he’d be a good addition if healthy.
Coach Tyronn Lue would not let anything slip when asked about the status of the players earning a tryout.
“It went well,” Lue said regarding the minicamp. “I’m not going to talk about that. A step in the process as we’re trying to get better. I’m not going to speak about that, but I was at the workout today and that’s all I’m going to speak about.”
It seems unlikely any of these players are going to be the difference in helping the Cavs get past the Warriors should they meet in the Finals.
