“I’m on a Collision course with Father Time and last time I checked, Father Time was undefeated.” Pistons/Mavericks The Mavericks signed Veteran Derek Fisher (1-8/24 min/2/2/3/2stl) this week and he not only played last night. He was the starter! Darren Collision (26 min/5/2/8/stl) just can’t get a break! DC should still get the better half of minutes at the point, but my word, this really hurts his value. If Rick Carlisle wants Fisher starting, then I expect him to start from now on, but no way he plays 25 minutes a game the rest of the way. Darren Collision is obviously the better player right now and everyone knows it, including Jim Carrey’s twin brother. This just seems to be a tactic, to both ease Collision’s minutes, and get some good player coaching from the old and wise Fisher. Trade him then? No. Unless you come across an owner who is completely daydreaming, you won’t be able to get full value for him. My plan is to ride out this experiment. Hopefully this is just something...
