The New York Knicks fired their coach Derek Fisher today.
After a promising start to the season, the Knicks had lost nine of their last ten, and Fisher’s overall record with the team was 40-96.
Fisher also got into a bizarre altercation with Memphis Grizzlies forward and his former teammate Matt Barnes right before the season started. Apparently, Barnes drove 90 miles to fight Fisher because he had heard he was hooking up with his estranged wife Gloria Govan.
The league suspended Barnes two games for the fisticuffs, whereas Fisher received no punishment. However, Barnes got back at Fisher this Friday when he scored 12 points in Memphis’s 91-85 win over New York at the Garden.
When Barnes heard the news of Fisher’s demise today, he trolled really hard.
