Derek Fisher Addresses LeBron GOAT Talk, Rajon Rondo And Lakers’ 2020 Title Run

Derek Fisher addresses the LeBron James GOAT talk, Rajon Rondo and the 2020 title run. The Los Angeles Lakers are NBA champions after a very long time without winning much of anything. This season was very difficult for every team and player. But those teams that did well had to stay in the NBA bubble for even longer.

LeBron James talked about how hard this was.

“I am here for one reason and one reason only, and that’s to compete for a championship,” James said. “That was my mindset once I entered the bubble, once I entered the quarantine process the first two days. And then right from my first practice my mindset was to, if I’m going to be here, make the most of it and see what you can do and lock in on what the main thing is. And the main thing was for us to finish the season and compete for a championship.

“So that’s just been my mindset throughout these — I don’t even know how many days it is, whatever how many days it is, it feels like five years so it really doesn’t matter. I’ve been as locked in as I’ve ever been in my career.”

But now Lakers great, Derek Fisher has talked about several different things.

“So your Lakers are champs once again! What is it like seeing them win the title 10 years after you won?”

“It’s a reminder of how fast time flies when you think about 10 years ago was the last time the Lakers won the championship and me being fortunate enough to be a member of those teams. So it’s a reminder of how quickly life moves, but also a reminder of how special that opportunity is, and I think this team, in particular, this year in 2020, they deserve a lot of credit and respect and admiration for what they were able to accomplish.

“Staying together as a team mentally and physically and keeping themselves focused on the greater goal says a lot. Coaches, players and staff deserve a lot of credit.”

“Do you think this title thrusts LeBron more into the G.O.A.T. conversation?”

Anytime you win and you’re successful, it elevates your status. It elevates the way people see you and admire what you’ve accomplished.”

“For me, in terms of LeBron, it’s not just the winning of the championships. You can’t ignore statistically what he’s doing and when you start to average out where he’s going to end up at the end of his career and every single meaningful stat category, it’s going to be hard to say that he isn’t one of the greatest players of all time.

“It’s just going to depend on the debate in terms of different eras and the way the game was played and how the game was officiated and all these different things that people can say, but he’s definitely moving higher and higher into a very, very short list of guys that can be considered the greatest player to ever play basketball.
