You realize that his voiding the contact in Utah was BECAUSE of the family situation. He wanted to be near the best care possible for his daughter. How can you call that BS????


only thing is that their are plenty of good stated/cities in the country where he could have the best care for his little one....
it must have been by chance that he resigned with the lakers

What does it really matter? Why are people so offended that he returns to the Lakers? LA offerered the best combination of care for his daughter, career, and lifestyle. I just dont get why people are so pissed about that?

doesnt really matter to me i guess ( really he isnt a superstar so he doesnt hurt us) to me if it was about his little one then let it be about that...the fact he ends up back in lakers uni is not by chance. i mean look at stanford or boston or new york their are many many places to get top notch care for his little one.

Regardless of the whole Utah contract thing - I've always hated Fish, even when he was with the Warriors, I was hella pissed when I heard we picked him up. The hate I have for Fish is comparable with my hate for Kobe, Duncan, Bowen, Derron Williams, and Raider fans (lol).

I don't think money is much of an issue for this family...if it were you or I, obviously the situation would differ

What knowledge do you have of the situation that leads you to believe that his job prevents him from fullfilling all the obligations to his family?
