Derek Fisher doesn't look at this like I-- what is the mood there with this hiring and Derek Fisher . By the good mood as a lot of people very impressed -- that opening speech from Derek Fisher and he attacked. The questions that are gonna attack him obviously he recognized the people we're gonna. -- on his lack of experience as a head coach but the way he put it was ever since I was six years old. I've been playing organized basketball and for most of that period. I've not been the most talented guy haven't been -- jumping guy hadn't been the tallest guy -- I had to understand at a very young age how the game is played so. Derek Fisher doesn't look at this like -- I've been a coaching training for a couple of weeks he looked at it like I've been coaching training for a couple of decades. Nancy went all the way back to six years old and said he was thinking about that from an early age that he wasn't the most talented player. We said earlier on it was not the first choice that was Steve Kerr that didn't happen obviously goes to the warriors. What's the mood there in New York how to feel about this Derek Fisher or knowing he was not number one analyst. Well I think what helped out is his relationship with Phil Jackson to have. Jackson in his corner a guy who played for a minute guy who Jackson trust Jackson mentioned in 2001 the way Derek Fisher and able to come back from injury missing about sixty games.

About how they are putting their support behind Derek Fisher making a statement you know we want this -- bad bad. -- on the pay him this kind of money. We've seen first year coach is especially very recently Jason Kidd with the -- Mark Jackson. With the -- had a lot of success is -- first year coach have success but how much of a gamble now is this bringing in someone with no coaching experience. Well I think it's a little bit of a gamble but you're right that the recent success you've seen players able to turn around quickly going from player. To coach and a lot of those guys like Derek Fisher Smart players. When they were playing almost coaches on the floor that's what Phil Jackson said. Gave him Derek Fisher has been an assistant coach slash player for the last couple of years setting in that transition won't be as bad and again. The way you see that recent success with some of these guys certainly lays the ground work for a guy like Derek Fisher to come in and be successful the head coach --
