D. Fish

June 12, 2009

By now, most of you know the Lakers took a commanding 3-1 series lead in the NBA Finals last night in dramatic fashion.  Derek Fisher buried a 3 pointer at the end of regulation to send the game into overtime and buried another one in overtime with 31 seconds left to secure the win.

I laughed when it happened.

It’s the same thing I do whenever Kobe makes an impossible or last second shot.   Or when Manny Ramirez drives in a run in a clutch situation.  I expect it from Kobe and Manny, and after Fish’s shot with 0.4 seconds left against the Spurs a few years back, I expect Fish to drain those threes.  It didn’t matter that Fisher was 0 for 5 shooting threes in the game before casting the game tying shot.

These stars expect to come through in the clutch.

Do you expect that of yourself?

    I’m not a big basketball fan and I was thoroughly impressed. Fisher was awesome.
