Matt Barnes is still in the NBA. He’s on the Memphis Grizzlies roster — his ninth team — hoping to push the Grizzlies to the next level. At 35, Barnes is an NBA veteran. But in the bitter love triangle between Barnes, his estranged wife Gloria Govan and New York Knicks coach Derek Fisher, Barnes is a spring chicken. Derek Fisher is 41. He retired from the NBA as a player two seasons ago, moving directly into the Knicks hot seat. And the woman they’re both battling over?
Barnes’ wife (they’re not yet divorced) and reputed Fisher paramour Gloria Govan is 45 years old. She was one of the stars of the VH1 Basketball Wives franchise, both the original and the spin-off: Basketball Wives: LA. Barnes and Govan have two children, twin sons Carter and Isaiah. The boys are almost seven.
