Derek Fisher Latest to Take Plunge in Philippines

Here at LSL we’re all over the latest happenings in Filipino hoops. Well…at least during these early stages of the lockout we are. More specifically we’re covering basketball in the Philippines only as much as it involves current Lakers.

There, now that we’ve got that straight on to the business at hand.

Today it was reported that Derek Fisher will be the latest Laker to play in a couple exhibition games in the Philippines. D-Fish joins the Philippines’ adopted son of hoops – Kobe Bryant – along with a host of other NBA ballers making the trip across the Pacific.

Bryant has already made plenty of inroads in Asian hoops so its only natural others a following in his footsteps. In addition to KB24’s tour of the Philippines his agent is also rumored to be putting together a tour of China.

So there is your daily update of basketball in the Philippines. While I never planned on blogging on the subject it could only be a matter of time until Filipino ball is the only basketball we’re talking about around here. Stay tuned cause a little later we’ll breakdown the roster of the first place Talk N Text Tropang Texters.
