Derek Fisher was never the best player, certainly not the tallest or quickest. C.J. Watson Jersey . But whether on the court with Kobe Bryant and Shaquille ONeal, or across the bargaining table from David Stern and Adam Silver, he never feared taking the shot, speaking his mind, or doing whatever else was expected of a leader. So he has every attribute the New York Knicks need -- except experience as a coach, the job they hired him to do. "But I am experienced," Fisher said Tuesday. "Basketball is a game that I am experienced in playing, understanding, leading in, guiding in, helping another group of people achieve the greatest gift in the world as a professional athlete, and thats being a champion. That I have experience in, and thats the experience that I plan on sharing with these players, sharing with this organization." Thats what made Phil Jackson turn to one of his most trustworthy former players for his first coaching hire. Just days after finishing his 18th season, the 39-year-old Fisher was tabbed to replace Mike Woodson, whom Jackson fired in his first major move as team president. Fisher won five championships playing for Jackson with the Los Angeles Lakers and was known for his knack for hitting clutch post-season shots while playing an NBA-record 259 playoff games. But some of his most important work came in the locker room, just as it will now. "He made some incredible shots in the playoffs, always stepped into the vacuum of leadership, but more than anything else it was the ability of Derek to speak the truth from what the sense of the group was," Jackson said during a press conference at the Knicks training centre in Greenburgh, New York. The Knicks went 37-45 and missed the playoffs, just a year after winning the Atlantic Division and advancing to the Eastern Conference semifinals. Jackson, who declined an original offer to coach the team, was instead hired to run the front office in March and fired Woodson the week after the season ended. He was seeking someone familiar with the triangle offence and someone with little or no coaching experience that he could teach. The Knicks had nearly closed a deal to hire Steve Kerr, who instead left the TNT broadcast table to take the Golden State Warriors coaching job. Jackson then turned his attention to Fisher, even getting fined $25,000 last week when he was too open about his interest in the point guard who was still under contract with the Thunder. Terms of Fishers deal were not released, but a person with knowledge of the details said it was worth $25 million over five years -- the same length of Jacksons contract and about the same deal Kerr signed with the Warriors. Fisher won three straight titles from 2000-02 on the Lakers teams led by ONeal and Bryant, and helped them win again in 2009 and 10. He is respected among players around the league and was the president of the Players Association during the 2011 lockout. The 6-foot-1 Fisher was still a key contributor for the Thunder this season, helping them reach the Western Conference finals. Fisher, who is tied for third on the career list for 3-pointers in the NBA Finals, said thinking like a coach helped him play so long despite never being the most athletic or talented player. And now, like Jason Kidd in Brooklyn, he is prepared to make the leap right from the court to the bench without any coaching experience on any level. They Knicks won titles in 1970 and 1973, when Jackson was a player in the organization, but have had little post-season success in this century. Fisher, dressed sharply in a brown suit and purple shirt, believes he and Jackson can bring winning back to New York. "We know without a doubt that we can re-establish what that means, what that is," Fisher said. Fisher said he likes the triangle but would run what was best for the team. Jackson said he would always be available to help. The Knicks hope the duo can reach a group that admittedly tuned Woodson out at times. And perhaps can help persuade Carmelo Anthony, who can become a free agent in July, to remain in New York. Fisher, a former first-round pick from Arkansas Little-Rock, will certainly give New York a credibility that only champions can bring. "Thats why Im here," Fisher said. "Thats why I took advantage of this opportunity, to be a part of that process." Vince Carter Magic Jersey . The St. Louis Cardinals were scheduled to arrive in Boston in time for a workout on Tuesday afternoon. Much of Mondays discussion focused on Bostons lineup considerations as the series progresses, specifically when the venue shifts to St. D.J. Augustin Jersey . The freestyle skier from Calgary finished sixth in the qualification round with a total of 82.00 points. Groenewoud won a silver medal at the X Games last month, just over five weeks after undergoing double knee surgery. http://www.magicauthenticshop.com/Authentic-Nikola-Vucevic-Magic-Jersey/ . Edwin Encarnacion carried the torch for two days at Fenway Park this week; Melky Cabrera and Jose Bautista have had their moments; lately Anthony Gose has contributed.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Brooklyn Nets are one of the hottest teams in the NBA and will try to continue that momentum Sunday night when they visit American Airlines Arena to meet the Miami Heat. Brooklyn has won three straight and six of its last seven, including three in a row as the visitor. In the process, the Nets clawed back to .500 for the first time since Nov. 13. The Nets winning streak reached three with a 100-98 victory in Orlando over the Magic on Friday. Late in the third quarter, the Nets led by as many as 26, but they had to survive a furious fourth-quarter comeback. Orlando outscored Brooklyn 37-14 in the final period and cut its deficit down to one possession, but it could not hit a tying or go-ahead shot in the games final minute. Mason Plumlee led the Nets with 18 points and nine rebounds, and it was his reverse layup with 2:21 remaining that ended Orlandos 16-0 run to get back in the game. Better to learn in a win, but definitely a lot to learn from, said Plumlee. Too many turnovers, I had five myself. Cant turn the ball over ... if you take care of that, its not even a close game. Brooklyn also got 16 points each from Brook Lopez and Deron Williams off the bench. The two have been coming off the bench during Brooklyns great run. Joe Johnson added 14 points, including two clutch free throws in the closing seconds. The Nets return home for three straight, starting Monday versus the Dallas Mavericks. Jodie Meeks Jersey. . The Heat are in free-fall. Theyve dropped four straight and seven of their last nine. Miami dropped both contests on a short road trip and both were double-digit setbacks. After an 11-point loss in Indiana, the Heat, the four-time reigning Eastern Conference champions, were destroyed by the Houston Rockets, 115-79, on Saturday. Were not trying to figure things out, were just trying to win a game, said center Chris Bosh. Just go out and get the job done. Do better, however possible. Dwyane Wade and Bosh each netted 15 points to lead Miami. Hassan Whiteside added 14 off the bench and Luol Deng rounded out the double-figure scorers with 10. The Heat led by four after the first quarter, but the Rockets clobbered them in the second to the tune of 38-22. The third quarter was even worse for Miami as the Rockets won the period, 33-11. Houston led by 31 and benched most of its starters over the final 12 minutes. The Heat, who head west for five games, starting Thursday, allowed the Rockets to shoot 50 percent from the field and committed 21 turnovers, which Houston turned into 25 points. The Rockets hammered the Heat on the glass, 47-33. The Heat have won both of this seasons matchups, both of which took place in Brooklyn. The Nets took both of last seasons regular-season contests in South Beach, but lost three times in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
