Does Derek Fisher have a dark side? Yes. A cinnamon and sugar swirled, sweet and crunchy dark side.
There are many things Derek Fisher and I have in common. For example, neither of us jumps particularly high, and we're both considered ideal candidates for high office.
Still, being around him generally reminds me how much more mature and dignified he is than I am, despite the fact we're about the same age. It's kind of depressing, actually. Sometimes, we don't even need to be in the same room for it to happen. Such was the case when I came across this video from his website. In it, we learn what Fisher does when he's feeling a little saucy.
Yes, when Derek Fisher wants to get crazy, when he really wants to go nutty, yell "Nerds to this!" and let his freak flag fly, he indulges in...
Go crazy, man.
Ask Fish and he'll tell you he's a lot more free-wheelin' and fun than people give him credit, though I'm not necessarily sure this sort of "revelation" contributes to any reputation as the Official Point Guard of Party Central. But here's the kicker: With Lamar Odom off candy and the media looking for a story to pass the time between now and (knock on wood) the Finals, could Fish's love of cereal be the next big quasi-controversy? If it's discovered he occasionally indulges in Fruity Pebbles- a true (and truly delicious) gateway cereal towards an unhealthy lifestyle- will physicians start writing cautionary blog posts?
We'll just have to wait and see...
