I candidly don't accept how Derek Fisher is still playing. His career has been authentic by two things: clamp shots and acceptable leadership. Yet, at age 37 and with 15 seasons beneath his belt, he has never absolutely been what one would alarm an aristocratic point guard.

This year, Fisher is averaging just 5.5 credibility and 3.4 assists per game. As the starting point guard, it is his job to run the breach and actualize plays that will advice the Lakers win. Abandoned casual the brawl to Kobe and afresh dispatch aback affectionate of defeats that purpose.

Yes, he's a abundant locker allowance attendance and his resume of clamp shots is absolutely impressive, but the Lakers allegation a point bouncer who will accomplish the aggregation bigger and not just canyon the brawl to the a lot of reliable scorer.

Grade: D-
