#1 Take a Charge - Not literally of course. While it would be awesome to get an offensive foul called on your boss, our Legal department here at Laker Magic doesn’t want to be liable if you hurt yourself on Derek Fisher Day. Besides, Derek himself has rarely been injured in his career because he stays in great shape (see below). Why not take one for the team on this day of celebration by setting your feet, squaring up and preparing for a charge when your girlfriend asks, “Do you love me more than the Lakers?”
#2 Get on “Swoll Status” - Built more like an NFL running back than your typical NBA point guard, Derek doesn’t need to fish for compliments when it comes to his physique. You too can defy age and father time by simply keeping yourself on “swoll status” at all times starting with a trip to LA Fitness tonight. Specifically work on your arms. Lakers fans, do you have your season tickets to the Gun Show?
#3 Negotiate a Labor Dispute - Seriously, is there anything the guy can’t do? While other players were sipping Mai-Tais in the Bahamas, Derek was busy playing Monopoly with real money against NBA billionaires. He’s even convinced the Lakers to keep him in the starting lineup. Yup, this guy is good. Chances are you can’t even negotiate your way out of a parking ticket but if there were a day to try, certainly it’s Derek Fisher Day.
#4 Take a Big Shot - Of alcohol (or your favorite non-alcoholic beverage says our Laker Magic Legal dept). No Lakers role player has hit more big shots in his career than Fisher with the possible exception of Robert Horry (his name is Big Shot Rob after all). Since Derek Fisher Day falls on a Monday this year, why not make that Cadillac margarita Purple and Gold? Even better, shoot it in 0.4 seconds!
#5 Flash your Bling - Sorry LeBron, you might be The King but Kobe and Derek are the Kings of the Bling. In fact, Fisher, Horry and current “Lord of the Rings” Bryant have 5, 5 and 6 rings respectively. That’s some serious blingage. The saying goes, “if you got it flaunt it”, and D-Fish has definitely got it. If you want to be like Derek tonight, sport your flashiest rings. Hell if you get into a bar fight from too many “Big Shots” (see above), your Championship diamond brass-knuckles might come in handy. Although that would be be more like “How to be like Ron Artest” before he found Peace.
