Mo Williams: Derek Fisher Is the Hines Ward of the NBA
The Lakers beat the Clippers on Friday night at Staples Center 112-104. Center Chris Kaman was ejected at the end of the game after setting a pick on Lakers point guard Derek Fisher, whom he felt came up too high while fighting through it. The two got into an argument and Kaman reportedly said he’ll see Fisher in the parking lot afterwards.
Kobe was asked for his response after the game and said the NBA was full of fake tough guys (like Chris Bosh). He then made a crack about Kaman fighting with a bow and arrow. The whole mini-feud was actually becoming mildly amusing before Mo Williams played the trump card on twitter Saturday.
Williams wrote “If yall didn’t know, D Fish is the Hines Ward of the NBA. I don’t know if that’s a compliment or not. But don’t let that nice guy fool u.”
In case you don’t understand the reference, Hines Ward is often called the dirtiest player in the NFL. Mo is exactly right. Fisher comes off as a well spoken, friendly guy with a smile, but he really is a guy who loves initiating contact. If you don’t agree, just look at this and compare it to this and then let me know what you think. Looks pretty similar to me.
