People Are Roasting The Hell Out Of Derek Fisher's Debut On 'Dancing With The Stars'

"Matt Barnes about to come beat him in that also."

When you're a former athlete participating in something like Dancing With the Stars, you can leave yourself open to major ridicule. And sure enough, after making his debut on ABC's dancing competition earlier this week, Derek Fisher is being roasted to hell and back.

The former five-time NBA champion point guard debuted on the show rocking a Los Angeles Lakers-reminiscient jersey and warmup pants outfit while dribbling a basketball to the sounds of Kurtis Blow's "Basketball." That paved the way for Fisher and his partner on the show, Sharna Burgess, to dance the Salsa.

As one person put it, "this Derek Fisher Dancing With the Stars debut... is a lot to take in." Check out his routine and all the zero-chill roasting that followed it, including petty AF mentions of Matt Barnes.
