Despite going 40-96 as a head coach in the NBA, Derek Fisher thinks he deserves another shot at leading a franchise to a losing record. It’s not his losing ways keeping him from a head coaching job though, according to Fisher; it’s his relationship with a former teammate’s wife.

Back in 2015, the entire world got the popcorn out after learning NBA forward Matt Barnes put hands on Fisher for sleeping with Gloria Govan, Barnes’ then-estranged wife. Fisher responded to the beatdown by calling law enforcement, NBA executives and Barnes employers at the Memphis Grizzlies. As a fallout, Barnes was disciplined and Fisher eventually lost the New York Knicks locker room and his job.

Both have men have traded verbal jabs at each other in the press since then, but their feud was reignited on Tuesday after BleacherReport posted this quote of Fisher’s on their IG account.

After seeing the image and caption, a sassy Barnes jumped in the comments, writing, “[Fisher] sound real tough on here, didn’t sound like that when he was running around my house screaming and pleading!” According to Barnes, Fisher wanted to talk during their violent confrontation but Barnes had no interest in a conversation.

In addition to being called a wuss by Barnes, Fisher’s week also featured five NBA championship rings being stolen from his home.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
