New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton will obviously do just about anything to pump up his team.
He will sign former star players (i.e., Deuce McAllister), give the players bats and tell them to “Bring the Wood!”, and yes, even bring in a basketball player to motivate a team that is known for playing such good offense, that it looks like basketball on grass.
According to TMZ, the team has asked Los Angeles Lakers point guard Derek Fisher to speak to the team prior to their September 9th season opener against the Minnesota Vikings.
Fisher, the current serving president of the NBA Players Association, certainly knows a bit about winning championships and also knows bit about repeating as champions.
While with the Lakers, Fisher has won five championship rings including back-to-back-to-back titles in 2000,’01, and ’02 and back-to-back titles in 2009 and 2010.
The man knows what it takes to cone back and win it all again.
There’s been no confirmation by either Fisher or the Saints but knowing Payton, this will most likely happen, and hopefully the Black and Gold can take his advice to heart and be in Dallas in February to geaux after another title.
