Rumor: Derek Fisher told players to be ‘physically prepared’ for season?

One league source claims that union president Derek Fisher text-messaged numerous players last week indicating that some progress had been made and imploring them to be physically prepared just in case the season started on time.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Will they? Won’t they?

Currently, there’s a great deal of back-and-forth about whether the players and owners can get their you-know-what-together so there’s a season.

Every sign is being investigated and analyzed -like Roger Mason’s now infamous tweet that was intended for Amar’e Stoudemire, but became public.

Now there’s word Union President Derek Fisher sent a text to the players last week suggesting they be physically ready in case the season starts on time.

What to believe?

Regardless of what the owners and union are saying publicly, there appears to be progress. After all, both sides are bringing in their full staffs for the next negotiating session.

Hopefully, it results in another step towards a new collective bargaining agreement -and a season.
