Derek Fisher will remain with the Lakers to “continue with Kobe”
HollywoodNews.com: LeBron James caused quite an uproar when he decided to join the Miami Heat, but Lakers fans can take a sigh of relief, because Derek Fisher isn’t following in his footsteps.
He has officially decided to stay with the Lakers and said, “I have decided to continue with Kobe, continue with our teammates and the fans of Los Angeles,” reports TMZ. He adds, “While this may not be the most lucrative contract I’ve been offered this off season, it is the most valuable. At the end of the day, there’s one person I could not turn away from. Kobe Bryant asked me to stay but supported whatever decision I made. He and I have played together for 11 seasons, came into the league together as kids, and has been loyal to me even when others had doubts.”
