Derek Lamar Fisher (born August 9, 1974) is an American professional basketball point guard who has most recently played for the Oklahoma City Thunder in the National Basketball Association (NBA). His NBA career has spanned more than 16 years, during which he has won five NBA Championships with the Los Angeles Lakers. He currently serves as the president of the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA). Born in Little Rock, Arkansas, Fisher started out his basketball career at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. Selected with the twenty-fourth pick by the Lakers in the 1996 NBA Draft, Fisher spent his first eight seasons with the franchise.
