I believe in Derek Fisher

The early signs are in. And promising. Derek Fisher was always a blank slate to me as a player, a Phil Jackson poser point guard a la B.J. Armstrong and Steve Kerr: not a "real" point guard, but a dude who played alongside all-time greats and thus had nothing to do beyond bring the ball up-court and shoot wide-open threes. As my basketball IQ grew I came to appreciate Fisher's value, but he never captured my imagination. When Jackson brought him in as the Knicks' new coach, I felt...nothing.

Fisher earned his first win as coach with some inspired, downright ballsy lineup adjustments, many of which involved benching vets for younger, less-established options. Starting center Samuel Dalembert rode the pine for all but the...

Derek Fisher kinda named a starting lineup

Andrea Bargnani is still out with a hamstring injury and may remain so through the season opener. Jose Calderon will sit the final preseason game tonight to rest his sore calf, but he's fine. Quincy Acy's wrist is still bugging him. The Knicks will start the following lineup tonight (except with Shane Larkin in Calderon's place) and Derek Fisher very nearly confirmed it'll be the starting lineup on opening night: “It would be safe to say that would be pretty close to it” Fisher on starters for opener: Calderon, Shump, Melo, Jason Smith, Dalembert — Jonah Ballow (@jonahballow)...
