Tough as nails, yet classy. That’s how I would describe Derek Fisher.
He had some controversial moments when he left Utah, but he did ask permission and had a valid reason (his daughter’s illness) to leave. Kudos to Utah Jazz management for being classy enough to understand.
Tough and classy guys belong in OKC, so Fisher will retire with the Thunder. Yet, he’ll still be remembered as a Laker and as a player.
Question is, will he get another ring, this time without Kobe?
