Odds on Scola flinching when Fish walks past him in the HOU locker room?
Derek's had some huge moments as a Laker. I expect he'll be back with the organization after he hangs up his sneakers _________________ Dumbledore closed his eyes and slowly lowered his head before Kupchak. "Teach me," he whispered.
It's bittersweet. The team is drastically improved at point and saved some cash, but I'll never forget those clutch moments from Fish when it mattered most.
Who knows. Maybe he's bought out and returns next year in a more appropriate role. _________________ "Closest thing to MJ in this current league is not Kobe Bryant. It´s Demar Derozan."

In all the years I've watched the Lakers I've seen players come and go and its always tough. But today is by far the saddest I've ever felt to see a Laker go. Fisher wasn't the most talented player but he had a warriors spirit, and he always wore the colors with class and honor. _________________ But remember, while today it is me, we all shall fall..
D.Fish will be missed and I for one, appreciate his accomplishment as a Laker .
I do however like our PGs now, Session starting with Blake coming up the bench and Morris as third string.
I like our chances for winning the championship this season better now!
Im sad to see Fisher go out like this. He deserved better, at least bench him don't trade him to Houston for a scrub. Come back D-fish, sign a 10 day and retire as a Laker.
I think the team felt that Coach Brown would have a hard time simply benching him, with Kobe having Fish's back and Fish being the proud leader that he is.
I know, you probably want to say "Fish would prove his leadership by not complaining, by sitting for the team." Well, we don't know. And when you factor in that unknown with the salary savings for next year, the decision was clear to Mitch.
I'm sure this was a very tough trade for the front office to make.
