What to Do With Derek Fisher

The League may have to take disciplinary action against the Lakers point guard prior to Game 3: ” Fisher’s actions will be reviewed by the league today and could lead to a suspension for Friday night’s Game 3 in Houston. He said he doesn’t even think he should have been ejected let alone suspended, suggesting that Scola’s screen was simply further away from him than he expected when he tried to run through it. ‘I understand the officials were trying to get the game under control at that point,’ Fisher said. ‘My intent was to run through the pick hard. He was further away from me than I thought, so my arm was up high when I hit him.’”

    Does anyone have video of this?

  • German Reignman

    Reading only the headlin the correct answer would be: RETIRE

    If I’m the NBA, and he promises to get some James Worthy goggles and fit them with some prescription lenses, I’d waive any suspension.

    Just kidding, one game.

    tad, search “Scola gets LAID OUT by Fisher” on youtube

    From the video it appears that Derek looked before he hit Luis, so it’s likely the league will suspend him.

    Laid out is right. How out of character for Fish. Looked like he came off the ropes WWE style when he hit Coca Scola

  • riggs

    his dumb*ss should get fined as well, if they want to be consistent with the KMart BS fine.

    Um, yeah. 1 game suspension. All of that goodwill Fisher built up from his daughter’s surgery is dunzo.

    If Rondo and Kmart didn’t have to sit, neither does DFish.

    And Charles Barkley needs to STFU.

    Fisher is under investigation and Rondo was cleared to play game 7 against the Bulls after shoving Hinrich into the lap of some guy charting baskets and rebounds? Now how come people get these crazy ideas about the NBA-conspiracy-theories? (!)

    tealish, you ride the short bus dont you?

    Scola looks like Razor Ramon.

  • KoBynum716

    if rondo didnt get suspended for his b!tch move on hinrich, neither should fish. but the bias of this joke of a league will lead to fish sitting out game 3, just to prove that the celtics are untouchable

    Wow, the officiating and penalizing of players in these playoffs has been terribly inconsistent… It’s very frustrating to see, I Rondo Punched Brad Miller in the face and threw Kirk Hinrich into the scorer’s table (then ran away) and he didn’t get ejected OR a fine! I’m fine if they want to be strict on all of them or leaneant on all of them, but just pick one for goodness sake.
