While many in the Los Angeles sports world have been miffed at Laker star Kobe Bryant’s unwillingness to address the Mike Brown hiring publicly, the other captain of the Purple and Gold will reportedly get some face time with the teams’ new head coach. Accroding to ESPN Los Angeles,  Lakers co-captain Derek Fisher, took a break from the negotiating table with NBA executives in trying to hammer out a new collective bargaining agreement, and flew back to Los Angeles to have dinner with new Lakers coach, Mike Brown.


Fisher, Matt Barnes and Pau Gasol are the only members of the Lakers to date who have commented on the hire, with Fisher tweeting: “…Will miss Phil but excited to start a new chapter under Mike Brown. Looking forward to a different style and energy!!”
