Say it loud ... WE'RE A COUPLE AND WE'RE PROUD!!!
Here's Derek Fisher and his GF Gloria Govan ... all over each other while on a lunch date out in L.A. this week ... obviously trying to send a message that they're NOT AFRAID of Matt Barnes.
The pics come days after Fisher published a middle-finger style article about Barnes -- painting Matt as a violent, crazy ex who attacked Fisher out of jealousy back in October.
Fisher and Govan have been careful about keeping the PDA out of the public eye for months ... but now it's clear, they want EVERYONE to know they're a couple ... whether Barnes likes it or not.
