Derek Fisher was booed in his first game back in Dallas since signing with the Oklahoma City Thunder last month. The Associated Press says Fisher was booed by Mavs fans when he entered Sunday’s game with 1:45 left in the first quarter. Mavs fans also cheered when Fisher was called for a foul about 10 seconds later, according to the AP. Even Mavericks owner Mark Cuban joined Mavs fans in the boos. Before the game, which OKC won 107-101, Cuban said he was going to boo Fisher. “I’ll just boo him like hopefully everybody else,” Cuban said, via ESPN Dallas. Cuban is still upset with Fisher for the way he handled their business dealings. Cuban says Fisher, then unemployed, repeatedly called him before the season asking for a chance to play. After an injury in November, the Mavericks owner signed the veteran point guard. But after Fisher got hurt, he asked the Mavs to release him supposedly so that he could rehab from a knee strain closer to his family. Dallas obliged in good faith, only to see Fisher later sign with the Thunder. “It’s not so much what he did. It’s how he did it,” said Cuban before the game. No surprise, OKC won the game. If it’s any consolation to Dallas fans, Fisher had three fouls, two points, and one assist in 12 minutes.
