Derrick Fisher has requested that the Jazz release him from his contract, due to his daughter Tatum's illness. There was a rumor earlier this week that the Lakers were interested in bringing a veteran point guard to give Kobe some reputable players and as you know, he and Kobe are very close. The Lakers seem to be very confident that Kobe will stay, don't they? Well, he hasn't been very vocal over the last couple of weeks, so maybe he'll be in purple and gold for the 2007-2008 season. I want to send a prayer to the Fisher family and hopefully he will be back on the hardwood soon. Oh yea, I haven't forgotten that infamous shot in San Antonio!!!
