Hey, its fine to want to win. Everyone wants to win some games at least so they dont look bad. If Fisher truly wants to win, then he knows that him shooting 7 contested shots against the celtics, all misses by the way, will not help this team win.
Derek does not need to be a starter to be the vocal leader of this team. Most of the "inspirational leading" comes during halftime and timeouts.
If your third reason is true, then thats just stupid for Derek because it would be the most irrelevant and defaulted record ever. We have no other PG, of course he would be starting.
