As Far As Starting Guards Go, Fisher is Still No. 1 Option

Over the past few years, the NBA has been a breeding ground for young and talented point guards. Derrick Rose, Chris Paul, Deron Williams and Rajon Rondo are just a few of the athletic guards posting career numbers in points, assists and steals.

It isn’t any wonder Lakers fans have been experiencing a bit of point guard envy. 

The 14-year veteran guard, 36-year-old Derek Fisher is the current starter at the point for the Lakers. A few people would like to see him take a step down from and come off the bench. Considering Phil Jackson’s options, Shannon Brown and Steve Blake, it’s highly doubtful that Fisher will make that shift at any point from now until season’s end.

Some have grown tired of Fisher’s lack of production on the offensive end, granted he’s never really been a threat at that end of the floor. On occasion he’ll have a great shooting night, but it hasn’t happened recently. For the month of February, Fisher has shot a staggering 11-for-29. He’s shooting at an average of 38-percent for the season, but his average behind the arc has been better than his career average at 40-percent.

At the moment, the one positive in Fisher’s game is that his minutes per game are right around 28-30, right where Jackson would like just before heading into the playoffs.

Next: The back-up guards aren’t exactly rising to the occasion

I respectfully disagree. I’d rather see Blake as well as Barnes (when he’s healthy) in the starting lineup for defensive & offensive purposes. Blake can run the offense and starting point guards take advantage of Fish. I’m glad they re-signed Fish, but he’s better off the bench. Rest him until the Playoffs when games are 2-3 days apart and let him take the big shots.

  • I agree with you, I love DFish, but i think Blake or Barnes can run the offense better and defend better right now. Not only is Fisher struggling offensively but on the defense he is always getting beat by these faster guards.
