Details from Fisher’s Crash Coming to Light
On Sunday morning, former NBA player and Knicks’ head coach Derek Fisher and girlfriend Gloria Govan were involved in a car accident linked to a suspected DUI.
Per the Los Angeles Daily News, Fisher flipped the SUV he was driving after hitting a guardrail. The multi-time NBA champion was arrested by police on suspicions of drinking, but thankfully neither Fisher nor Govan were injured in the accident.
In an intriguing plot twist, the vehicle which Fisher wrecked on that faithful morning was, according to TMZ sports at least, a gift from Govan’s ex-husband and Golden State Warriors wing player Matt Barnes who reportedly gave her the 2015 Cadillac Escalade “for the kids”.
In October 2015, it was reported that Barnes and Fisher got into an altercation after it was discovered that Fisher, who is a former teammate of Barnes, has been dating Barnes’ ex-wife.
