Fisher is nothing more than a three point shooter.  He made only 30% of his two point shots for the Mavs, who signed and started him to get some veteran play out of the PG position. 

Dallas was 5-4 with Fish starting and 7-11 without him.  Even though I despise Fisher for the dishonest way he plays basketball, I've got to give him some credit for stabilizing the Mavs. 

Usually when he wants out of a situation that doesn't fit his liking, he uses the family card.   Back to LA< if the Lakers want another defensive liability to pair with Nash.

No thanks to Fisher.  He's a good guy but he's done.  If thats true, thats the second team he signed with and then decided he didn't like the location.
I don't think "not liking the location" and "there's no doctors in this state that can save my daughter's life" are exactly the same.

I really do like the guy but I don't want to see him in green.

That whole thing with his daughter's illness was just a way for Fisher to get his way out of Utah and back to LA. Fisher is a slimy opportunist off the court and a cheating flopper on it.  I hope no team gives him another shot to flop and complain his way through any more NBA games.

Id pick up Fisher and then slip him some poison after about a week.

If this was '07, I'd have no problem with it. But now - no.
I don't know about his daughter, but I remember she had a tumor removed about 5-6 years ago, correct me if I'm mistaken.

I think the problem with him is he doesn't like being a players who playes the first 10 mins of a game and then sits the other 38 minutes watching Collison play.
When you lose, the easy part is to see who gives up. Giving up is very simple. You basically take your stuff and walk away. To continue to work and to continue to compete is one of the most difficult things, especially when you really don't have anything - KG

I think he also ditched the Mavs gracefully because he knows they aren't contenders this year.

I wonder how much credibility the players think they have when the president of the player's association bails on contract after contract?

I don't get where people see Fisher as a good guy.  He's a cheapshot artist on the court and a jerk who bails on his team when they're not contenders.
