He's a Laker, which sucks 'cuz I really liked him on the Jazz.....

He was released from the Jazz for his daughter's illness, then he signed with L.A.

Utah supported him on that. He didn't do anything sneaky (like Utah's own Boozer). Fisher expressed that he wanted to leave to go play for a team that is located near hospitals that can treat his daughter.

He headed back to LA for his daughter's well being. Los Angeles does have better health care than Salt Lake City. At least Fisher was honest about the whole thing, unlike Boozer who pretty much says "I'll stay here in Cleveland" and then bolts for Utah faster than you can say slam dunk.

He actually gave up like $7M to make this change to get his kid the best possible care.

He is a class act.

Actually $21M :)

That really says alot about him. But, still I would've liked it if Utah had the right treatment for his daughter, so he could've stayed with the Jazz.


Oh well....

The Lakers must be class for giving him 5 mil a year. That deal alone should've driven Kobe insane

Fish is top notch is character department. It wasn't just health care in general he was looking for. He needed specialists that can deal with that rare form of cancer his daughter has. He considered New York, Memphis, LA, and several other NBA towns that he could get the care for her and not have to leave town to do it.

He signed with the Lakers for about $13M, I think... so about $21M - about $13M, is about $7M.
