“I heard a rumor that if you don’t spend time with your Valentine, Derek Fisher will,” Rose said with a straight face." -Jalen Rose
I almost feel bad. If I thought Derek Fisher offered anything of substance as an NBA coach I would think it sucks that he has been stigmatized as a wife fucker. Everyone has put their penis somewhere it probably doesn't belong, it's just that it usually doesn't cost them their career in the process. Can't say the same for D-Fish. It's become readily apparent that if you fuck one NBA wife then might as well has fucked every NBA wife. If that wasn't clear when Knicks players said they were uneasy with having their head coach around their families, then it certainly is now. When NBA analysts -and former players- are making appearances on national television and taking needless shots at your love life then you know your coaching days are over. Really begs the question if Derek Fisher will have the shortest coaching resume in NBA history. It's not like he did anything to earn his first job, and what he choose to do during that stint has basically blackballed him from the rest of the league. Imagine a General Manager trying to explain to his players that they were bringing Derek Fisher on board as an assistant? That would go over about as well as hiring Bill Cosby to run your WNBA franchise. On one hand it's quite the compliment that NBA players don't trust their significant others around Derek Fisher. If his career was as a cocksman then he would be at the top of his profession. Unfortunately it is to be an NBA coach, and that requires the respect and the trust of his players. Respect and trust that he likely blew all over Gloria Govan's back. Oh well, enjoy your vacation Derek. No reason to hurry back now...
