Derek Fisher, often considered one greatest role players in NBA history, was named the boys’ basketball coach at Crespi Carmelite High School.
The private Catholic boys school won back-to-back state titles in 2015 and 2016, which is something Fisher can certainly relate to.

Following his playing career, Fisher went on to coach the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Sparks.
"My family and I are thankful and grateful for this opportunity to join the Crespi family," Fisher said in a statement provided to FanNation. "Coaching and teaching is a true passion and I look forward to continuing this focus on the next generation of young student-athletes."
This certainly makes the upcoming season for college prep hoops in the San Fernando Valley one to look forward to. Bryce James, the youngest son of LeBron James, will reportedly attend Studio City’s Campbell Hall after leaving Sierra Canyon.
