Fisher is a good father

Utah Jazz point guard Derek Fisher announced he was leaving the team to care for his 11-month old daughter, Tatum, who was diagnosed with eye cancer while Fisher was playing with the Jazz in the Western Conference semifinals. The 32-year-old guard said basketball is not a priority but added that he is not prepared to retire. Fisher will leave almost 21 million dollars in salary on the table, which was due to be paid to him over the next three seasons.

Eye cancer ain't funny, especially with children. About the only time it's funny is when it happens to pedophiles and rapists. And Laker's shooting guards.
