Matt Barnes Compares Derek Fisher to D'Angelo Russell

This is shade to the highest degree.

Published April 1, 2016

Matt Barnes just couldn't resist.

The Memphis Grizzlies forward took to his Instagram on Thursday to compare the incident of D'Angelo Russell secretly recording a cheating admission from Los Angeles Lakers' teammate Nick Young to his own situation with his ex-teammate Derek Fisher.

This is shade upon shade.

Folks got the game so ass backwards these days you don't know who to trust!

Of course, Barnes made headlines of his own last October when he attacked Fisher for dating his ex Gloria Govan.

Ever since, Barnes has been calling open season on Fisher, comparing him to Russell, whose recording of Young hit the Internet last week, leaving Swaggy P's engagement with Iggy Azalea up in the air.

Both Barnes and Young found themselves in the situation of trusting their teammates only for them to stab them in the back in two different ways.

Earlier this week, Govan refused to accept blame for Fisher being fired as coach of the New York Knicks in February.

Not that Barnes cares — his Grizzlies are headed to the playoffs.

We feel like Barnes will blast Fisher every chance he gets with no chill whatsoever.

Hey, Derek, you earned it.
