Here's what Derek Fisher thinks of Paul Pierce's comments

Jun 8, 2010, 5:23 PM EDT

 

Well, there you go. Fisher has always been known as one of the NBA’s true class acts, but that certainly doesn’t mean he’s a guy you want to mess with. When asked about Paul Pierce’s comments that the Celtics “won’t be coming back to LA,” Fisher’s facial expression told the whole story. 
We’ve all heard about how the “veteran mentality” that teams like Boston and LA have helps them get down to business and win road playoff games, but it’s rare to see up close exactly what that veteran mentality means. No cute remark, no overblown war metaphors, no qualifying the game, no “that’s just something players say” — just the intense stare of a player determined to get home-court advantage back.

    He’s trying hard not to crack a smile.

    Fisher was about to laugh real loud… so loud that the whole Sports World can hear… and of course, that includes me… and I’m very sure, Pierce will “eat-up” his words… ’cause, I have this feeling that the Lakers will have a “Re-peat” this year.

    Thats funny! Cause I think Fisher has that deer in the headlights look! Like all the Fakers do right now! The Fakers look spooked…and the Celtics know how to get under the Black Mamba’s skin! Looking like number 18 is signed sealed and delivered!

    Paul The Punk is what he’s called in SoCal even when he lived here. The old fart Boston players better hope that someone can pull a miricle again and hit 8 three’s.

    After Fisher’s sterling performance in Game 3 he certainly showed everyone that he walks the walk and not just talk — unlike Pierce. But yeah, I have to agree with Pierce — no more games in LA!!! LMFAO!!!

    Now that we’re in the middle of the 2010 finals, Lakers leading 2-1, I guess we’ll have to see what happens. But so far, Pierce has been a non-factor. That’s right, I’m still waiting for him to show up like he did the the 2008 finals. Greatest player in the world? That’s a stretch. Maybe he’s the greatest player in his family, and even that isn’t saying much…Paul Pierce, the city of Los Angeles welcomes you back. Lakers in 7.

    Really, John?
    Deer in the headlights, John?
    Guess you aren’t coming in to elaborate, John?
    John, did you catch the deer’s fourth quarter? :)

    No use dude, I think John got sideswiped by rampaging semi-truck with LA plates just like you know, you guessed it, a deer in the headlights. LOL!!!
