Fishing For Fisher
Derek Fisher. He has been on the Los Angeles Lakers, winning championships with Kobe Bryant. After being on Oklahoma City Thunder last year and losing to the Miami Heat, Derek Fisher left to go to the Dallas Mavericks. After suffering a knee injury this year, Fisher asked for the Mavericks to release him around Christmas time because he wanted to spend more time with his family. Now, he participated in the Thunder's practice on Tuesday. Head coach, Scott Brook, has not clarified if Fisher will play Wednesday night. He will not retire quite yet, and this is his last chance. If Derek Fisher doesn't play well or prove his point that he still has basketball left in him, this will most likely be his last season. Maybe Fisher can win a championship in his last season, like Ray Lewis of the Baltimore Ravens in the NFL, sending him happily into retirement.
