Derrick Fisher has been a solid point guard his entire career. Having been in the league for 15 years now he has averaged 8.6 points per game shooting 40% from the field while pulling down 2 rebounds. For the majority of his career he was a starter with the Los Angeles Lakers where he made a household name for himself knocking down critical jump shots late in the fourth quarter of games.
Fisher is most notorious for his catch-and-shoot game winning shot with just .4 seconds on the clock against the San Antonio Spurs in game 5 of the Western Conference playoffs in 2007. The shot which can be seen in the video below has already been deemed worthy for a position in the NBA’s 60 Greatest Playoff Moments of All Time for which there is a lot of competition.
There is no doubt Fisher has had an incredible NBA career. With five championship rings he is pressing on Jordan’s mark of 6 in 2012 as his Oklahoma City Thunder are currently tied at one game a piece with the Miami Heat for the NBA Championship. Should Fisher win that 6th ring this year he will be among only the elite to have 3 rings per hand. So the question we are stating before the masses is this; Should Derrick Fisher deserve a Hall of Fame selection should he get to win a 6th championship?
