A taxing year is coming to a familiar finish for Oklahoma City Thunder guard Derek Fisher.
It all started with him being front and center during the NBA lockout as the president of the players' union, then grew more complicated when the Los Angeles Lakers traded him away after he'd won five championships with the franchise.
Fisher signed on with Oklahoma City, and he's three wins away from achieving his ultimate goal of winning a sixth title. Only 13 players in NBA history have been a part of that many championship teams, including Bill Russell, Michael Jordan and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
Fisher says he can't complain about the ups and downs of a year that's also included a power struggle within the union.
