Derek Fisher knows a thing or two (or five) about winning. He recently conducted a radio interview with Steven A. Smith and had this to say about the Lakers when asked, “Are the Lakers the best team in basketball right now?”

“I’m always going to say that we’re the best team in basketball, not just because of what we accomplished in the past, but who we are right now. People obviously have strong opinions about the way we play or sometimes how it looks. … But we know how to win. We’ve won two championships, we’ve been to the Finals three years in a row and we’re confident in our ability to deal with these circumstances.”

The Lakers are preparing for the Mavs tonight. It’s good news for Lakers fans to see the confidence as strong as ever with the savvy veteran.

      Again, your sexual fantasies are irrelevant to this blog. If you have a basketball related opinion about the Lakers, please feel free to state it. Otherwise, try homoeroticsportsfantasy.com or something.
