Derek Fisher: ‘I have no steadfast plan to play again’

Derek Fisher is reportedly interested in making a comeback as a player. That’s ridiculous, because Fisher is nearly 42 and has completed a head-coaching tenure with the Knicks.

So, everyone laughed at him.

Now, he’s trying to quiet the jokes.


Fisher, like a lot of retired players, likes to stay in shape by playing basketball. Fisher, like a lot of people (myself and probably you included), would listen if an NBA team expressed interest.

But I doubt any team wants Fisher, so hopefully his sentiment here is genuine. If he’s really intent on playing again and is just trying quiet the chatter, this likely ends in disappointment.
