Last night, the 16-year NBA veteran defeated his former team that surprisingly traded him to the Houston Rockets on march 16th for the former lottery pick, Jordan Hill.

But let’s face it leading up to the trading deadline and last years early playoff exit, Fisher was displaying his lack of youth being 37 years old. So the Los Angeles Laker’s plans for the future were to bring in more youth by trading for Ramon Sessions and Jordan Hill. On paper, yes these moves were much needed and made alot of sense. But what intangibles were the Lakers giving up by trading away their former captain and NBPA president.

As we all know, Derrick Fisher is a ideal model of an NBA professional off the court and a mature voice of reason in the locker room. Plus, Who have the lakers leaned on to intervene when Kobe Bryant begins another public beef with teammates? Not having Fisher’s leadership during the 2012 playoff run definitely hurt the Lakers and contributed to chemistry on the court.

What about Fisher’s playoff experience? The lakers traded for two players that have no playoff experience. Fisher has already won 5 NBA championships while averaging 8.9 points per game and making 40.3% beyond the arc in the playoffs.

Even though, Derrick Fisher may have looked old, a half step slow and at times a defensive liability. He was still an asset to the lakers. For the lakers to let him go obviously hurt them in more ways then one.

Moreover, to win the Western conference championship you must beat the lakers. The Oklahoma City Thunder organization isn’t stupid. At some point in the playoffs they knew that they had to face the Lakers. And who knows the Lakers new playbook installed by Mike Brown and staff? Derrick Fisher, duhhh!!!

Clearly, the lakers had no answer for the void of losing Derrick Fisher. But Mitch Kupchak and Dr. Buss better hope that there’s no hard feelings in hope of resigning their former old captain before the 2013 season.

Then again, the lakers wanted Ramon Sessions…lol

I don’t know if its been mentioned here in the shop. But the University of Tennessee Lady Volunteer’s winning the women’s SEC basketball tournament with Pat Summit suffering from dementia is pretty significant.

Whenever I actually followed the Lady Vols this season they were always losing or irrelevant. So, I was shocked to see that they had won the South Eastern Conference Championship this weekend at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.

This is a Great Win for Pat and the University of Tennessee. This victory is even sweeter for her to win something in what is likely her final year as the head coach of the Lady Vols.This is also the 15th SEC tournament championship under Summit.

Moreover, It was a bit weird watching the game. It appeared that associate head coach, Holly Warlick, was really running things, which is very different from the past 37 years. It seemed as if Pat was just listening in.

The Lady Vols were led by the superb play of tournament MVP, Glory Johnson. She finished the game with 20 points and 10 rebounds. The 39-23 rebounding advantage was a key factor in beating the LSU Lady Tigers.

Young Buck is in the news again. This time as a very lucky victim. A person in a white Chevrolet Tahoe fired 11 shots at the former G-Unit star’s car outside of the LaBamba night club in the southern section of Nashville, TN early sunday morning around 3:30 am.

Unfortunately, his girlfriend, Kenyatta Rainey, riding with the Cashville rapper was shot in the shoulder and treated at the local Vanderbilt University Hospital.

Young Buck and Rainey were in a heated exchange at the nightclub before the shooting occurred. After the couple left so did the people that they were arguing with.

That’s Kray!!!
