I'm sure Derek Fisher is a nice enough guy, but he really leveled a cheap shot at Luis Scola last night. No question about it -- an intentional shoulder and elbow to the neck/head area is a dirty play. And this is coming from a guy who's had a few other questionable fouls in his career, not to mention a number of ridiculous flops.
But what is really mind boggling and ludicrous is Phil Jackson dragging Deron Williams into the whole thing. During and after the game Jackson compared Fisher's hit on Scola to Williams' hit on Bynum in the first round of the playoffs. Come on Phil -- Williams' play was a hard foul. Fisher's was an assualt. To dig that deep you must really be getting nervous (and rightfully so) that the Rockets are going to pull an upset. Couldn't happen to a nicer squad than the Lakers. . .
