A Hollywood Ending Deserves a Hollywood Cast

Derek Fisher: Captain John H Miller (Saving Private Ryan)

“Earn this… earn it.”

In Spielberg’s 1998 war epic Tom Hanks played the role of Captain John H Miller, a man who fearlessly led his men into battle. A seasoned veteran from a small town, Captain Miller led his team of men through hell in order to save the life of one Private Ryan (queue up the “Matt Damon” voice from the Team America soundboard).

When things look bleak and Captain Miller’s team lost sight of why they were there, he reminded them of the end goal. When his men needed him most, he never let them down. Captain Miller was a leader of men, as dependable as they come.

Sound familiar?

If the Lakers are to prevail tonight, they will need their emotional leader to keep them grounded and keep their eyes on the prize. Will Derek Fisher please stand up?
