The guy would be perfect for the Lakers.  Plays average to good defense in short spurts, has a deadly baseline shot and is experienced.  Why did Mitch Kupcake let this guy go?  And why not re-sign him as a free agent prior to the playoffs?

Cause we got a 7 footer who  hustles and rebounds like a beast, and isn't on his way out of the league.

You would've thought that with all the injuries we've had to all the players over 30 this year, that some fans would understand that the solution is not another 38 year old...

Yet that another 38 year older holds some records about consistency and tagged Iron-Man by some commentators. Injuries just happen guys, these are professional basketball players, they know how to take care of their bodies. If they don't even youngs get injured. So yes age does have an effect on injuries but thats not the main case, the main case is luck and not havin Suns medical staff.

He really impressed me the other day but still i'd take Ramon over D-Fish any time. This is a player almost made me cry when he left i might add.

D-fish has occoasional games like this but hes' not reliable night in and night out. You forgot Conley put up a triple double on the other end against him

Should of keep this old man instead of Nash.  Atleast Fisher doesn't get hurt that often and he plays better defense.  But we all know Jim uss don't want anything to do with Phil Jackson and Fisher is from the Phil Jackson tree. Wouldn't be surprised if Fish end up being a head coach in a few years.


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

Good defense? Fisher is a horrible defender. And the Thunder are in deep [expletive] if Fisher is their number 2 option

I still find it hilarious how people would rather have Fisher than Nash.

Average to good defender. You do realize almost every pg in the league went on the highest scoring nights with fish starting right. Fish has an occasion and by occasional I mean like every 20 games or so will have a great game. The rest he will go 1/6 with like 3 points and 2 assists and while the guy he's guarding will have 20 points easily. 

 

Blake an nash are miles and miles better than fisher. Its literally not even close.

Because Blake is a better backup and defender than Fisher and unlike Fisher can actually play the starting role.

You think when Kobe went down that Fisher would have went off for 24 in his absence in the starting position? 

Fisher is good for what he is.  But I think it's obvious by now that Mitch made the right decision keeping Blake over him.

Thing with Fisher is he is sturdy, and is good at drawing charges.

 

Nash has none of that defensively

He is what, somewhere close to MBA minimum, like $1mm a year?  The comparison to Fisher to Sessions or Nash is apples and oranges/.  We could have had this guy to come off the bench for cheap.  Thats the point.

Did anyone watch thunder vs rockets?

No
You were all watching the clipper games. You phonies...

Fisher hit clutch shots
Played great defense on harden

I'll repeat, great defense on harden

Fisher doesn't miss games, he is built like a pf at pg


I said it when the lakers traded fisher, that they may have brought upon the team a great curse, that will last a generation


Don't get me wrong, hill is a nice talent, a lottery pick with potential...
But fisher has been thru the wars with Kobe since 1996.

I can see fisher playing next year as well...
He is a physical specimen... As a matter of pride I think he wants to play longer then any other pg in that draft....

He passed iverson, starbarry, now he needs to outlast Nash...


Fisher steps up in big moments, he has a few more left in him

Talk about a knee-jerk reaction. Guy scores 15 points and people suddenly want him back.

Most fans often ignore entire seasons, and then cite one good game from a player as evidence that he should be on the Lakers. 

Yet for their own team they require months and months of consistent good performances before they actually give credit, and then after one bad performance call them scrubs :)  

Like I always said.. some Lakers fans seem to like to wait to hate on players UNTIL they become Lakers.

 watched that whole series. Great defense, I'm not so sure.

Big moments from Fisher is something that, I think, every NBA fan, player, critic, or whoever, can agree on. How many more big ones he has left remains to me seen, but OKC's gonna need all of em while Russ is out.
