Do you miss Fish?

Yes, he contributed more than people give him credit for last year.

It would have been nice to keep him... but I understand.

Kinda... but I have high hopes for Dajuan Wagner and Keith McCloud.

Of course not. We're better off without him.

Overpaying is usually a bad move since players, knowing their contract's are guaranteed, don't give it their all (Damp, Dun)

Fisher was an admirable player for the team and I just hope that the play of the backup PGs doesn't make us miss him!

Aren't our backups (Monta, Wagner, McCloud) just cheap salarywise :D

Yeah, that's my point... if your team doesn't improve enough, why do it?. You're losing flexibility for signings, and getting a worse draft pick due to it. If you don't even get to the playoffs, it's just not worth it.

Also why gamble on it? Where did the saying overpaying a player of Fisher's caliber worth the gamble come in? If you know, for a fact, but still have faith in him, why do it? Those little holes in what you believe and don't are the little things you lose out on. Overpaying is EXACTLY what HE'S done that put the Warriors in debt. Overpaying is EXACTLY what's costing most teams from receiving a happy ending. This only applies in sports though if you know where I'm getting. But seriously, overpaying is only done if you know for a fact that you'll go somewhere. And that somewhere is the playoffs...deep playoffs.
Don't hate yourself in the morning... sleep 'til noon.

Bottom line: I'm gonna mish Derek Fisher. If he wasn't so damn expensive, I'd rather have him than those 3 Jazz punks. I understand the need to drop his contract... but he was reliable, clutch, and talented. I wish him the best in Utah (cause now he'll be both bored AND cold when the regular season ends :) ).

He'll likely be trying to hit clutch shots in the playoffs for the Jazz :wink:

In the offseason...?

How'd they do it without playing any games? I guess they musta paid off Stern, because that's the only way they can get into the post-season this year. :)
