Posted February 27, 2013 - 03:27 AM

I've been waiting to write this one for quite some time but I'm elated with having even more irrefutable evidence to support my argument.  I might not be the best person to write this, considering my disdain for anything LA, but hear me out.

Back in 2007 Derek Fisher convinced the Jazz that he needed to spend time with his ailing daughter who was suffering from cancer in her left eye.  The Jazz obliged Fisher by releasing him out of his contract so he could "concentrate on finding the best care for his daughter." After saying, “life for me outweighs the game of basketball,” Fisher would proceed sign a three-year deal to return to the Lakers, one of Utah's biggest rivals in the Western Conference.  He was the starting guard on a team that would make three straight Finals and win two titles. 

Fast forward to this week.   Fisher signed with Dallas last year but quickly asked for and received his

Derek+Fisher+is+a+piece+of+[expletive].jpg This was the right call release on Dec. 22 so he could spend more time with his family, as he explained in a prepared statement.  Now with 26 games left before the start of the playoffs, family concerns are no longer an issue for Fisher, who wore No. 6 for the Mavs because, as he said, he joined them on a quest for a sixth title. “This is not a pit stop,” Fisher had told his new Dallas teammates (that's a lie).

So sure enough he will also wear No. 6 for the Thunder. He will make his second OKC debut in as many seasons at home Wednesday against the New Orleans Hornets.

So why did he come back to the Mavs?  According to this terrific and brutally-honest piece by Jason Whitlock, Whitlock suggested that Fisher’s sole intention when he signed with the Mavs — or with any team that would sign him — was to make himself eligible to maintain his position as NBPA president. If Fisher remained out of the league, he couldn’t lead the union.

Then he could proceed with the "hanging" of Billy Hunter that he so lusted after.   Whitlock's even got some voices in his camp, here's what former NBA player and NBPA vice-president Maurice Evans had to say about it:
“I give (Derek) a round of applause for being able to pull off this stunt and pull the wool over everyone’s eyes.  They were able to circumvent (the system) by putting him on a team for a day and a half so he could be reinstated as president,” Evans claimed. “I don’t know who (are) the powers that be to put that in place, but D. Fish was only on the Mavericks this year so they could pull this stunt off, so they could get Billy Hunter out of office.”

Derek Fisher doing something dishonest?  No way!  You mean like all the constant flopping he did while playing for years?  Geez I'd be shocked!  You mean like [expletive]ing over the Jazz and going to LA?  Or screwing the Mavs and joining the Thunder?  Fisher is a prima donna, a ring-chaser-extraordinaire.  He goes wherever suits him best and uses family issues as his excuse making him the lowest form of life.  If the Flakers had the same record as the Thunder you could bet your sweet ass he'd be back in LA.

Why sign with LA after 2007 after convincing the Jazz to release you?  Oh right because he was looking for the best care for his daughter.  Then why not go to the Knicks or Nets (both of whom showed interest) which is where you got the actual surgery performed (New York City)?  Wouldn't that make sense to get your daughter the best care?  No because the Knicks and Nets were irrelevant back then and not close to winning a title.  But that's how D Fish has always rolled.  He gives off the image of being some sincere, genuine guy but he's a conniving snake.  A gutless bastard.  A real piece of [expletive].

Don't believe me?  Here are three reactions to Dallas players/personnel upon hearing he would be signing with the Thunder this week:
  • "It wasn't a big surprise," one Mavs veteran said. "We expected him to end up with the Lakers or OKC."
  •  Added another Dallas veteran, while rolling his eyes: "Good for him. Good for him."
  • According to NBA.com, a league source described the Mavs' front office as "agitated" by Fisher's decision to sign with Oklahoma City less than three months after his sudden exit from Dallas.

p;

Derek+Fisher+flops.jpeg Courtesy of the Derek Fisher Flop Academy It was egregious to me at the time of the 2010 Finals when Mike Breen would mention Ray Allen and this [expletive] in the same breath, talking how they both epitomized being the consummate professional.  Say what you want about Ray (and Celtics' fans have a lot) but he was never un-true to his team.  He never talked his way out of a contract and went to sign with a rival within the same conference, not once, but twice.  Yes how Ray left was disappointing but there's many stories about how Ray's pride was hurt and how there was friction with Rondo.  Ray Allen has dignity and even if he seemed to stick it to the Celtics (by joining one of their biggest rivals) he did it at his own-will, as a free agent.  Not by using family as an excuse to get out of a contract.  Ray Allen is a hall of famer and not a con-artist.  Derek Fisher is not a hall of famer.

Kelly Dwyer from Ball Don't Lie chimes in on Fisher's OKC signing:

I can understand the personal aspect of it. Fisher was under no obligation to let the Mavericks know he was in talks with the Oklahoma City Thunder, and it’s not typical for ex-players to give ex-teams the ol’ ex-heads up before they put pen to paper with a new team. Fisher was waived under unorthodox circumstances, though. He asked to rehab his knee injury with his family before diving fully into the work of (rightfully) usurping Billy Hunter in the Players Association front office. Days after that work was done, he signed with the Thunder – a much, much better team that didn’t have use for Fisher earlier in the season (with Maynor’s potential still in place) when he signed with Dallas. 


derek-fisher-flop-225x300.jpg Credit ballislife for this gem So forget the apologists for Fisher who will claim I don't have my facts straight.  I've watched him "act" on the basketball court for years.  He's the biggest flopper in recent memory in NBA history.  He's an overly dirty player, always seeing what he could get away with.  It doesn't surprise me the unethical parallels of ball player and Player's Association head are so similar.  Breaking NBA contracts for atypical reasons?  Been there.  Trying with all his power to usurp Bill Hunter before he's out of the league?  Done that.  I agree with Mo Evans on that one.

I love Kevin Durant and if the Celtics don't win the title, it'd be cool seeing the Thunder pull it off.  But not by adding this douchebag.  Seriously hang it up, Derek, you've done this kind of thing far too often and frankly, everyone's sick of it.

I seriously do not give a flying [expletive] what some [expletive] Celtic fan thinks about Fish, but i'll comment on it anyway...

First of all, he should get his facts straight: Fish signed in with the Lakers in the summer '07 on a team that was close to trading Kobe while at the same time had to give up a bit of money to go there. Pau didn't get there until '08, so it was exactly a "winning" situation, like ass-hole-Celtic-guy suggest.

Second, he did get traded by the Lakers, and one can hardly blame him for wanting to go to a contender in OKC.

Could he have been more honest about his intentions to Dallas? Probably. Does he flop too much? Yes.

I've always had a maluable oppinion because I'm open to people's arguments and this definately lowers my oppinion of D. Fish. Definately happy he was a Laker though

If say, a Charlotte or even Dallas beat writer put together a balanced, well researched piece, I will pay attention.  Coming from a Boston writer, not much reason to pay any attention.  I suspect there is alot more to the daughter's medical issues part of the story than this writer cares to cover.

Even if you forget about the Jazz and him coming to the Lakers....him not even contacting the Mavs is a pretty [expletive]ed up move if he was going to come back to the league. It's really disrespectful. They were kind enough to let him out of his contract.

This article can trash him all they want. I had the pleasure of meeting the guy at my gym. And he showed up for his workout with his son, he was also a nice guy. He actually takes the time to shake hands and reply to the people who talk to him at our gym. True story, about 2 years ago in the offseason paul pierce was working out at my gym, one of my friends whos just an NBA fan not really a laker fan asked him for his autograph and he literally said this "I aint doin that [expletive] today, you saw me workout for free, thats enough for you."

Wow a Boston writer with a adgenda against anything LAKER

 

WHAT A [expletive]ING SURPRISE

Owners and Coaches pull back-stabbing crap all the time. Owners and Coaches lie to and about players all the time. Owners and Coaches will keep the upper hand by sitting players, limitting minutes to avoid paying on "incentive clauses, making promises that vanish once the Player agrees to a less than professional situation...............

DFish is playing the System..........and now everyone is jealous cause they didn't think of it 1st......or just Fn mis informed....or just wanted to post something controversial for a media deadline

 

Way to go DFish......play those loopholes til it hurts

^And IIRC he gave up the remainder of a very lucrative contract with Utah, like $7m/ year or something like that?

Would also like to note that his "evidence" contains out of context quotes false speculation(like fisher coming to LA to win a ring when we weren't even that good at te time) and a quote from Kelly Dwyer. If many of you don't know Kelly Dwyer he is an awful blogger on yahoo.

You know the one thing I love about our fanbase and these forums is although we have many bandwagon fans, I have not come across a single Laker fan in my entire life that is simply completely disrespectful and trashes other players and teams like celtic fans do. Seriously think about it even though a bunch of us hate other teams and players we don't act like this and make completely disrespectful comments towards them like this one. We give credit and respect where credit and respect is due. Doesn't shock me at all though. I'd expect nothing less from a fan of the Celdicks.

Except the Clippers.  It's every Lakers' fan's God given right to trash them whenever and whereever deemed necessary/ fun.  No apologies and no excuses.  To think that we have to share a court with them, how degrading!

 

Oh, and the Warriors too.  They have always been bad and will always be bad.  Even when they are not bad.

 

And the Kings.  They play in Cowtown, everyone knows that.  Picking on them does not count against classy fans like ours.

 

Oh, and the Celtics, everyone hates them so it is ok for us to hate too.

 

And the Suns.  How can anyone stand living there, its like the moon?  It's ok to trash them.  They have an inferiority complex so picking on them is fun.  And we now have the only Sun who was ever any good anyway.  Never mind they have all our draft picks.

 

And Utah, of course.  Backwards folks clinging to their God and guns, they are to be pitied and then teased by enlightened Lakers fans.

 

And Cleveland.  The Siberia of the NBA.  But we will soon rescue Kyrie Irving from the NBA gulag!

 

And Orlando, the Lakers' farm team of course.  Nice little run they made to the finals with our future center.  Who should we ask them to draft next with all those  picks?
