Fish takes the bait

Gazette staff March 13th, 2013

When Derek Fisher left the Dallas Mavericks in December to be closer to his family in California, only to re-sign with the OKC Thunder a couple of months later, Mavs owner Mark Cuban offered his opinion, which is basically this: Fisher is a back-stabbing megalomaniac who will roundabout his way to another championship ring (because five isn’t enough, clearly).

But there are two cheeks to every ass, right? What about Fish’s side of the story?

“I was being open and honest at the time and I’m being open and honest now,” he said in response. “At the time, I felt strong about the decision on a personal level. It wasn’t anything about Dallas or Mark that I was not happy about.

Just personally, I didn’t enjoy being away from my family at the time.”

Seems reasonable. Now that he’s back on a winning team, Fisher finally can enjoy being away from his family again.

Er, wait. Could you clarify? “Sometimes as a leader, you can’t make decisions based on what other people are going to think or how they’re going to feel,” Fisher continued. “You just do what you think is right at that time and that’s what I’m doing here.”

Whew, now that that’s all cleared up: Welcome aboard! Now let’s get you another ring.
