After getting into an altercation with Fisher at the home of his ex-wife last summer, Barnes served a 2 game suspension, and the jabs have since continued on social media.
Barnes ranted about Fisher on New Years Eve on Instagram and, for good measure, released a handful of other barbs towards Fisher. Immediately after the Knicks fired Fisher in February, Barnes posted a photo of himself dressed up, only for Fisher to post a photo afterwards, leaving for vacation with Barnes’ ex-wife.
In late March, following the D’Angelo Russell–Nick Young recording incident, Barnes took another shot at Fisher on Instagram by posting a meme of the him on a podium with the words, ‘DEREK FISHER BE LIKE WHAAAAT GUY CODE DID RUSSELL VIOLATE?’
Apparently Fisher isn’t done either, because he posted a photo of Barnes’ ex-wife Gloria Govan and her two sons (from her marriage with Barnes) on Instagram on Sunday from the Angry Birds premiere, with the caption ‘Hope you enjoyed a nice relaxing day today! You deserve it! Happy Mother’s Day @glogovan’
Needless to say,the posted picture was a calculated shot at Barnes.
This doesn’t seem to be losing steam anytime soon. Following this trend, expect to see another Instagram post from Barnes soon in response.
