Keep perspective, Lakers fans. I miss Derek Fisher. I miss him badly. But this is the price you pay for trying to be the Greatest Franchise in all of Sports.
No one is bigger than the organization. Remember that. Pound it into your heads. This is a business. The Lakers, and their fans, want titles. Rings. Banners. This is how you get it.
Rumor has it, Houston is considering buying out Derek Fisher, and while he cannot return to LA immediately, my gut tells me the Buss family will have Fish back home as soon as possible.
I hope this is true. I don’t think the Lakers can win a championship without him here.
