I'm not saying in this case, but most championship teams have that old guy that's been there before. He's the guy that's not going to freak out on the big stage and keep his head in it while the kids loose their shit. It's a useful tool to have.

He needs to retire. Free Jeremy lamb and give more playing time to Reggie Jackson.

I have no problem with Fisher. He' a great asset to this team and will be a big key to our playoff run this year.

I don't remember which game that was (probably game 4 or 5), but Fisher gave this speech before the game about always making the extra pass, etc. That's what you expect to hear from a vet, right? But later in the 4th quarter, when the game was tied or very close, he had the ball on a fastbreak, and instead of passing it to Durant or WB who were open and ahead of him, that midget took it all the way to the rim, missed it badly, and Miami went right back at them and scored an easy transition bucket. That play pretty much cost them the most important game of the series. So, long story short, fu*ck him and his veteran leadership.

I'm convinced Derek Fisher has some kind of CIA mind control device that he uses on coaches. That is the only explanation for the inexplicable love that coaches show this guy.

I always thought that OKC's biggest mistake last year wasn't letting Harden go, but re-signing Brooks. This roster needs a championship-level coach.

Well...it's a lot easier to can a bad coach than it is to get a what, top 10 player?

Well, they better start the canning process. Brooks is a proven bad coach, but the playoffs will determine if OKC needed Harden.

Don't sweat it, Thunder fans. Popovich left Splitter on the bench for over 2 years before deciding to start him. Instead Spurs fans had to suffer through Bonner and Blair. Even the best of coaches do STUPID things.

Just wait for the series to unfold, you will see we still do. 1 good game won't make up for his crappiness in the rest of the games.
