Hide your valentine when Derek Fisher comes around — at least, according to Jalen Rose.
The ESPN analyst took a dig at the former Knicks coach while on “Mike & Mike” Tuesday morning after host Mike Greenberg read a 1-800-Flowers ad.
“I heard a rumor,” Rose said, “if you don’t spend time with your valentine, Derek Fisher will.”
Fisher, who was fired by the Knicks on Feb. 8, is dating Gloria Govan, the estranged wife of former teammate Matt Barnes. In October, Fisher was involved in a reputation-damaging fight with the Grizzlies player over the relationship.
Govan recently posted, and then deleted, an Instagram picture of Fisher and herself boarding a plane with a large group of people.
There were also rumors, while unfounded at this point, that while Fisher was coaching he was also romancing different players’ significant others.
Tim Hardaway Jr., one of his former players, even asked his girlfriend if rumors he had heard about her and the then-coach were true.
“I’ve seen those. No reaction over here. I know all those are lies. They are going to do whatever they can, especially here in New York (with the media),” Hardaway said earlier this season. “So I am not even worried about that. I had a talk with my girlfriend. If you ask me, it is not true at all. I am completely positive with her judgment and what she said.”
