It appears that former Los Angeles Lakers teammates Derek Fisher and Matt Barnes have managed to reconcile and bury the hatchet after their infamous 2015 altercation. The incident was sparked by Fisher’s relationship with Barnes’ ex-wife, Gloria Govan, leading to a feud between the two.
However, recent developments suggest that they have moved past their differences for the sake of co-parenting Barnes and Govan’s twin sons, Carter and Isaiah. Despite the initial controversy, Fisher and Govan are still together, and Barnes has acknowledged the importance of raising the twins together.
In a recent podcast appearance on “Charges With Rex Chapman,” Barnes revealed that he and Fisher have now patched things up. They communicate, attend events together, and have even celebrated the twins’ birthdays at each other’s homes. Notably, Barnes mentioned that Fisher has been involved in coaching the kids, and Barnes himself attended one of the coaching sessions.
This positive turn of events signifies a significant shift from the time when Barnes and Fisher couldn’t be in the same room together. It’s encouraging to see them prioritize the well-being of the children and work towards an amicable co-parenting arrangement. Fisher and Barnes were teammates on the Lakers from 2010 to 2012.
