Rumor has it that the 42 year old NBA Champion, Derek Fisher is wanting to give the NBA one more shot. He retired after the 2013-2014 NBA season and has played 18 seasons in the NBA. He was never really a huge stats guy but was always a good role player. Some would even go as far to say that Fisher was a minor key in a couple of the Los Angeles Laker championships.
Derek Fisher tried to coach after retiring but never made it past the peak and didn't really get a fair shot. Now the question is, will any NBA team give the 42 year old player a chance?
My Opinion: At first I thought that the Thunder could maybe get him for cheap and to help mentor the team but now I think he would fit better with the Mavericks. The Mavericks have former a pretty nice team and have a great coach. They really look to be a threat in the Western Conference. They now have Andrew Bogut and Harrison Barns. Both of those two players that I just named will have a ton to prove and want to shut the haters up. If Barnes wants the media to stop talking about how he isn't worth the max then play good.
Derek Fisher could be the coach player and could keep the young guys in check. I would love to see him put on a Dallas Mavericks jersey for at least one season. Justin Anderson, David Lee, and Deron Williams all could use some lessons from the former NBA Champ Derek Fisher.
