The Oklahoma City Thunder were grateful to be able to pick up a seasoned veteran in Derek Fisher in the middle of the season. The point guard has been hearing the jokes about his age and ability for years now and is glad to be on a playoff team, but he apparently has no intention of hanging them up any time soon.
Darnell Mayberry of the Oklahoman reports that Fisher, who is a few months away from turning 38, does not have any plans to retire and intends to continue playing after the 2012 season is in the books.
Fisher has been in the league since being selected as a first-round draft pick by the Los Angeles Lakers in 1996. He has averaged 4.9 points per game and 1.4 assists per game since coming to the Thunder.
