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.
And the roasting that ensued was ferocious.
"High school musical" ... wow.
The former NBA teammates have been synonymous with each other since Matt Barnes allegedly beat Fisher up for dating his then-estranged wife, Gloria Govan.
Take a minute and figure it out.
DAMN! Hey, give the man some credit. It's not easy to participate in something like this. Best of luck to him.
