Derek Fisher on car accident, “The most important part is that we’re here.”


Derek Fisher, the former NBA champion point guard and then New York Knicks coach, was arrested early Sunday morning suspicion of driving under the influence after a car accident where he flipped the SUV he and girlfriend Gloria Govan were in. The vehicle came to rest on its roof on a Southern California freeway.

Nobody was injured, Fisher and Govan walked away from the crash. When TMZ caught up with Fisher that is what he focused on.

“The most important part is that we’re here and that no one else was injured. So from here, just focusing on the positives.”

He also was thankful for the thoughts and prayers that came his way.

It is a positive, and he and Govan are fortunate to have walked away from this accident.
