There was a time when I thought 6’1″ Derek Fisher was going to be a Robert Pack-type point guard, capable of throwing down surprise dunks on centers on a normal basis. You might be thinking I’m crazy to say such a thing about the lefty coach of the Knicks, but if you watched him as a rookie, you probably wouldn’t.
Fisher had a monster dunk in his very first game with the Lakers and during the Rookie All-Star game, he posterized (literally, it’s a poster in Slam Magazine) Allen Iverson. The 5 x NBA champion even once threw down a dunk on Shawn Bradley! Yeah, Yeah, Bradley has been dunked on by every player and his momma — ESPN even made a documentary about him getting dunked on — but the point I’m trying to make about Kobe’s all-time favorite teammate is that Fisher showed signs of being a “little man dunker” and not just a clutch shooter and master flopper.
Here’s some proof….
I was really hoping I could have found 5 dunks but the following rookie card doesn’t count and he didn’t dunk at the 43 second mark of the following video like I thought he was going to do either.
I also can’t put “dunk” and “Derek Fisher” in the same sentence without bringing up the time he was dunked on by Corey Brewer.
And here’s that awesome poster from Slam Magazine.
