Greatest Home Returns In NBA History
7 – Derek Fisher, Los Angeles Lakers (1996-2004, 2007-2012)
Fisher entered the NBA in 1996 along with fellow Laker Kobe Bryant. He was an integral part of their 3-peat champion teams and also became a fan favorite in Los Angeles. Derek Fisher’s numbers will never make someone stand up but his true value to those Laker teams was in the form of invaluable leadership and his knack for hitting timely shots. Fisher left the Lakers to sign as a free agent in Golden State and also made a stop in Utah until he was released by the Jazz, by request of Fisher, so he can best tend to his daughter’s health. He rejoined the Lakers in 2007 and helped the team win back-to-back rings in 2009 and 2010 with his solid veteran presence. Fisher is also popular for hitting an almost impossible game winner against the San Antonio Spurs in the 2004 West Semis with 0.4 left in the clock.
