Lakers Trade Derek Fisher to Rockets for Jordan Hill

The Los Angeles Lakers have sent veteran and five-time champion Derek Fisher to the Houston Rockets for Jordan Hill. The Lakers will also give the Rockets a first round pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.

This is coming off news that the Lakers acquired Ramon Sessions from the Cleveland Cavaliers, someone who is much younger than Fisher.

Although Fisher won five titles with the Lakers and came to the franchise in the same year Kobe Bryant came, it seems as though the parties have parted ways.

    Come on lake fans…. It’s  VERY sad that we lost Fish…. He is a TRUE WARRIOR…. We will all miss his leadership, and warrior spirit…. However, let’s give these trades a chance…. Sometimes the difference of greatness for a player, is just putting on that LAKERS uniform…. Let’s PRAY for the best…

    Fish will always be the man but come on…lets be real…he’s slow. Like gets beat off the dribble everytime. Sessions is young and fast. Thank you fish for everything…but this is a win now league..and we are not contenders period without a point guard that can move with the best of them

    Ya know as a life long laker fan it makes me disappointed, I understand there’s the business of the game, but man jim buss is not his father, and its just disappointing overall. I say this because his father who of course is a legend in the nba, who is in bad health, but even in bad health he had the moral respect to reach out to fish and thank him for all he’s done. Jim buss on the other hand has mad terrible rash decisions based solely on money. Yes, it can be argued that its smart business, that it sets up the future for the lakers, etc, but i don’t know im just not buying it. When I found out bynum was potentially going to be traded I was angry, you dont reward hard workers like that. And when I found out fish was gone, well needless to say I was confused. Confused because I realized that although it had to be done, it could’ve ended with him providing support from the bench and filling in the roll for sessions. I honestly have no idea who Jordan Hill is, and I have nothing against him, but as a lakers fan I will support him and wish him luck. However, I just think you lost the “heart” of this team. Yes kobe is the cog that moves the gears, Bynum keeps them well oiled, gasol can at moments give them the spirit, but Derek Fisher is different. You do not come across a player every day, month, year, or potentially decade, that has so much heart for the game, and a franchise. Even with sessions, I feel we can make a playoff push, but it’s when we get into trouble, a game or two down, that I truly worry. I worry because mr. clutch is gone, and although its been that way for a few years now, or with intermittent clutch shots, who is left to give a spirited speech, to grab the shoulders of the brothers of his teammates and say we are the team who won back to back championships. Jim buss, the sessions move I approve, this however, no matter how much its business oriented, I certainly can not. And in ending, this is not my application for a lakers nation columnist. Haha. – Sincerely a confused lakers fan. Go lakers.
