Saints courting Lakers PG Derek Fisher

TMZ has learned the New Orleans Saints are determined to get Los Angeles Lakers star Derek Fisher into their locker room for opening day ... because they believe Fish holds the key to back-to-back championships.

Sources close to the deal tell TMZ that Derek "has been asked by the Saints to address the team before their home opener in N.O. on September 9."


We're told the team especially wants Derek to talk about what it takes to lock down consecutive championships "as he did with the Lakers."

Fisher personally received calls from coaches and "other team staff" -- and we're told the courting worked ... because Fisher agreed and will be in the Superdome to pump up the reigning Super Bowl champs before they take the field.

You might hate the Lakers, but whatever Derek Fisher has to say can only help. He's known as overachieving in big games and has been apart of multiple championships. I'm all for it.

He is a PUNK ... He Punk'd Utah something fierce ... The guy chases rings and isn't a leader --- he is a follower. Has he been successful? YES But, has his success come because of HIM --- Not even close.

I want the Saints to repeat and I really could care less who comes and talks to them (because ultimately it doesn't matter), but Fisher is not the guy ... He lied about his daughter to get out of Utah --- That's beyond classless.

Of all the people they could get to come in and talk to the team, they picked this clown? What about Montana or Elway? Someone who's played the game of football and won back-to-back championships?

Just sayin...

Well they already had Mark Schlereth come to talk about repeating from his back to back championships with the Broncos in '97 and '98. I think they're just trying to provide as much motivation as possible to the players. Everyone connects with people differently. Maybe one can hit a string with a player that the others couldn't.
